Hiring the competition doesn't solve the underlying issues!

I have been working at CoreSite

Pros

Generally good people, good benefits, and a modest concern for the welfare of each employee, actually trying to come up with positive things to say is difficult.

Cons

- Executive team listens to the wrong people
- Data centers are mostly refurbished/retrofitted buildings that should not be a data center in first place
- Executive team is some of the most arrogant people I have had the opportunity to associate with
- Unwritten policy to hire competitors, to include their most recent hire from Equinix to fill the COO position. A strategy to compensate for the lack of ability on the Executive Team to include the CEO
- This idea that a company with 12 data centers can compete with a company like Equinix which has 90. It is part of the arrogance of the executive team.
- Overall client portfolio does not produce the majority of the revenue, once the few larger deals term out this churn will make it difficult for the sales team to replace

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None they wouldn't listen anyway...

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
