Pros

Many challenges to help you grow. You will be rewarded if you perform well. Fun and exciting technology. Nerve center of the internet.

Cons

There is a lot of growing pains. As the company expands there are a lot of processes lacking. There is no work life balance and at times you feel you are at a start up. It is hard to stop working after a 12 hour day. In some cases you could work 20 hours a day and still not be caught up.

Advice to Management

Look at work life balance. The compensation is fine, however it is hard to stay with a company that will put you in the grave at an early age. Try and bring back the human element. A lot of times you are treated like a resource that is owned by the company. Try and hire more so workers are not spread too thin to do their jobs under their ability.

    Pros

    -Company has had continous steady growth for several years -stability -global recognition of brand

    Cons

    -Sales and upper regional management treat site technicians poorly until needed to resolve issues pertaining to areas of data center expertise. -very little growth for upward career mobility -stagnant wages -little to no training for many new hires. "Baptism by fire through total immersion" or " sink or swim" mentality with management.
