    Pros

    A lot to learn about data center management. Good co-workers as long as they are on the same level.

    Cons

    Managers haven't figured out how to delegate and step back and let you do the job you were hired to do. There is constant micro-managing. They assign tasks and then you research and document only to find out that they did it anyway and wasted your time. There is ALWAYS a crisis and the entire office turns into panic-mode. Management sends out mixed signals.... They encourage "TEAM" but there is no such thing. The mood of the office depends on the manager's mood. It's only okay to joke if he/she is in a good mood. The managers badger the Assistants and belittle everyone. They beat you down and don't "get" how to build up morale. It seems like nothing is ever good enough. One minute, there is too much talking and the next minute it's too quiet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your staff do the job they were hired to do without micro-managing. Teach your managers how to manage rather than beat down and intimidate the staff. "Thank you" goes a LONG way. There is an "open door policy" but someone forgot to read that memo. Any "issues" are often turned around on you and there is no resolution. There are some very good and talented people that go unrecognized and unappreciated. As a result, you ultimately lose good people and then have to spend time and money retraining new unsuspecting staff.
