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...
