A decent place to work, if you like small companies.

Pros

Carpathia has good team, built in large part from employee referrals.
Everyone pulls their own weight.
Lots of opportunities to work on lots of different types of projects, with lots of different types of technologies.
Very flexible schedules available if you're on-call.

Cons

A bit skimpy on the benefits. The medical package isn't the best, and there's no 401(k) matching, or tuition reimbursement. Management runs the company a bit lean on head count. These are always a factor at small companies, though. Not much training budget.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Match the 401(k).

    I worked at Carpathia Hosting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Aggressive growth, interesting perks (steak lunch, party bus to ball games), decent bonus plan, has good financial backing, takes care of the sales staff.

    Cons

    Totally focused on sales & top line, really does not care what their customers do (see MegaUpLoad), some "solutions" tend to be smoke & mirrors.

    Neutral Outlook

    Small Business environment allows employees to wear multiple hats and learn ALOT of new technologies

    Pros

    Great culture of fun, family-like co-workers. Good working environment - the new headquarters is amazing. The small business environment allows for the chance to take on new tasks and learn as you go. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Limited growth in some departments. Management is super tight on spending, sometimes limiting the purchase of necessary tools, software, etc. Not a lot of transparency from the top down. The management team is like a little boys club - locker room talk, secretative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set and live the example for ALL employees, especially those in your department.
