    Pros

    The company is well positioned for ongoing success and has a rock solid business model and product mix. Most of the people are dedicated and great to work with. Most of the C-level executives are approachable, highly competent, accountable, really care about employees and are dedicated to making this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Newer management during this high-growth phase can be uninspiring. Big talk about strategy and high level goals is great, but without appropriate resourcing or a real willingness to listen and understand what it takes to implement things is resulting in frustration for many. There are a lot of execs landing at Equinix from the same few former employers, which can lead to some clubby behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying to keep the "old" culture alive in a rapidly growing company is probably unrealistic, but keep working hard to ensure that the "new" culture maintains the integrity, shared vision and executive connection that is so vital to retaining good people. Walk the walk!

    I worked at Equinix full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Some senior management outside of marketing is great. Unfortunately, easy transfers across groups is not optimized.

    Cons

    Micro management. Free reign to managers with no ability to manage people and disrespectful to employees. Highly political.
