I worked at Codero full-time (more than an year)

Pros

If you come to work at Codero the opportunities for advancement and personal growth (technically & professionally) are huge.

Obvious pro's work you'll get to work with some very smart people who have helped build many other hosting providers in this industry. Hosting is hard, especially with companies like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft entering the fray. Yes you can go work at places like those or Rackspace, Softlayer, etc and just be a drone but at Codero you can truly make a big impact, and make a significant difference. The development and support teams at Codero are poised for greatness and if you're up for it you can be a part of it.

Other good pro's are the health benefits are <em>very</em> good. Also the career ladder is certainly there for those who want to move up provided they work for it.

Within 3-5 years you will hear of Codero along the likes of Rackspace, Solidfire et al. The management team in place ahs done it before at these companies and they'll do it again. it's a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something that's going to be big. But don't expect it to be easy. Great success takes hard and smart work...

Cons

The industry of hosting is a hard one. No one has all the answers if you're looking for an easy job with your job priorities laid out in front of you I wouldn't suggest Codero (or any hosting company for that matter.)

You might see other reviews complaining about management. Everyone here I worked with was passionate about their jobs and making the business successful. It's a tight nit group. If everyone is giving 100% and someone is just coasting by you'd be upset at them too...

They give really good medical benefits and they are fairly lax about time off if you take care of you work - However - if you have a lot obligations outside of work you'll probably have to reconsider some of them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push Cloud and Hybrid more aggressively. Launch the api's publicly once available ASAP. Get some public tech celebrity faces talking about Codero. Help some open source projects whether free hosting or open sourcing an internal tool everyone could potentially use. Get more personnel in dev and support. Give more trust to internal people instead of seeking validation externally. Promote within.

    I have been working at Codero full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in a short amount of time. Good people to work with from top down. Technical teams are some of the best-WoW. Hire ups are down to earth and care about the employees. Can be hectic and stressful at time because you are in the service business, but also exciting and rewarding. The company is growing and adding locations.

    Cons

    Not much. if I must however, long hours, and some disorganization due to the fast pace. All manageable, if you have a good attitude, and a good sense of humor! A beer would help as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont forget the small guys when you go real big! Take care of the employees as you grow. I like the monthly town halls. Keeps me updated.

    Pros

    Smart people, good challenging work, lots of learning opportunities, free snacks, and beer Fridays! Whats not to like?

    Cons

    No real cons. More structured training program would be nice. When you start, it is a little intimidating. But once you get started, most are super helpful...Some of the people we work are in other locations, so more face time would help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your work ethic, and onto your vision, and this company will continue to do great things.
