I worked at Digital Realty full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Really great people to work with as long as they are on the same level as you.

Cons

Inconsistent direction from multiple managers. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Training is non-existent, yet you are expected to know procedures. Too many power-hungry managers wanting to throw their weight around and make the staff feel like they've wasted their time. Hard work is rarely appreciated. They preach "TEAM" but it's never the same team. You are given a task, only to find out that the person who assigned you the task, went ahead and did it anyway. Lots of wasted time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together and learn how to motivate the staff without tearing them down. Give your people under you, the desire to do their best to make you shine. Give them some self-worth instead of bringing them down. Work on commeraderie. HR needs to be there for the employees

    I have been working at Digital Realty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Huge room for growth. This company is investing all over the world and it's not unusual for your boss and his/her bosses to ask if you want more responsibility. More work = more pay.

    Cons

    No time for on-the-job training. Get your s**t together- day 1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Hire more help for the bottom feeders.
    Create a sense of comeradery for the teams and things will get done.

    I worked at Digital Realty

    Pros

    Friendly staff. No glass ceilings.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Start-up mentality, even though almost 10 years old. Extremely fast-paced. Absolutely no attention made to equal opportunity employment. Staff almost 65% Caucasian, 30% Asian, and 5% African-American. Outsourcing key roles to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together.
