    Pros

    The people, including Senior Management, are trustworthy, fair, and work well together. The Compensation and Rewards program is robust. Senior Management cares about employees. The company is growing, yet continues to examine ways to "get better". I am lucky to be here

    Cons

    Growing pains, some regional/corporate infighting, lack of systems and some resourced. All can be fixed, and some fixes are already underway

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reaching out globally. The bigger we get, the harder for employees to feel connected. And if you have any spare time, spend it on thanking the folks in the data centers around the world

    I worked at Equinix

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay package, nice hard working people, growing company with global presence.

    Cons

    IT is like a sweatshop, where people are expected to hangon late (like beyond 7pm) even on fridays and even if there is no ciritcal or time sensitive work, coming after 9 AM is questioned, spending 40 hours is considered 'not working hard', people are being monitored when they enter or exit office building. Team members steal others idea and it is encouraged. Hard working and sincere people get sidelined and incompetents reap all the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people like humans.
