I have been working at Datapipe full-time for more than a year

Pros

3000+ servers. Good exposure to many different environments and OSes. Laid back atmosphere, although that seems to be chaning with the new investors. Company has more than doubled their size in the past 2 - 3 years and is still growing.

Cons

Company has grown too fast leaving everything a bit disorganized. Instead of hiring competent admins (senior), they would rather hire 2 or 3 junior admins with no background New investors are focused more on "cooking the books" than keeping employees happy....I think it's because we are about to go public, but thats pure speculation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire half of the management staff. There are many management posiions that are completly uneccessary. There are manaagers for the managers. The whole system just slows down theme sys admins at the company. I imagine the other departments can relate as well.
