    Pros

    CoreSite is a great company for a type-A, detail-oriented person who is looking for a fast-moving environment. Opportunities for advancement are good, but management expects to see a pristine track record. Wonderful work environment, people are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    CoreSite is extremely lean for the scope of business they conduct, and this puts stress on employees. Common schedules kept by employees are 8AM-6PM, and this is expected. If you're looking to just punch your card and get by with the bare minimum, this is not the place for you. Environment can be coldly calculating. Performance issues are approached using positive punishment.

    Advice to Management

    Adding employees to sparse teams will help to ease the burdens of the tasks at hand. The company is too lean as it is.

    Pros

    Everyone is genuinely interested in seeing the company succeed. Inspirational CEO, albeit a bit intimidating - still inspiring to listen to his knowledge of the industry, and passion for customer service. Sense of family among colleagues. SLT members are caring, genuine, and approachable.

    Cons

    Inconsistent messaging about direction of the company. Too heavily focused on Sales and Marketing teams. Disregard for all frontline employees, as decisions are based entirely on Sales needs. (Granted, Sales makes money...but you still need a team of people to create what your Sales team sells...)

    Advice to Management

    Share information freely. Be honest and open. Focus on taking care of your employees and empowering them, and they will take care of you in return.

    Pros

    Good stable company with a bright future. Customer focused, excellent starting package and benefits for employees.

    Cons

    Overworked employees and management. When ideas and traning is brought up, management dismisses or overlooks it because they have their hands full. This can be dangerous especially when safety is on the line.

    Management lacks interest and is very lax, (thus the recent firing of regional managers).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when ideas are brought up, especially the ones that will benefit the company/team. Add a couple extra worthy dollars to compensation to departments that need it. The company will benefit from it greatly. Focus on your working class team, and not so much on sales and senior management who is already making over 200k.

    Pros

    There are lots of brilliant co-workers that share their enthusiasm on a daily basis and it seems that people generally love their jobs and work hard at them. Work-life balance is emphasized and managers are easy to talk to and open to opinions and suggestions.

    Cons

    It was a difficult industry to understand at first, especially with the majority of our data centers out-of-state.

    Advice to Management

    Everything seems to be working well, love working for the company.

    Pros

    Not only does the company strive to deliver best of breed data centers, and excellent customer service, but the employees really work well together. It's a genuine team atmosphere and everyone wants you to succeed. CoreSite's investment in their employees is equal from the top down - in order for the company to succeed, we all have to succeed.

    Nothing at the present time.

    Pros

    - CoreSite has a site for online training where you can learn new skills and bone up on those you already have.
    - Management takes a genuine interest in the well being of it's employees
    - Management - from the CEO down - is very down to earth, and not so busy as to take time to talk to any employee in the company.

    Cons

    I don't know that I really have any Con's to share at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing, because it is working.
