I worked at Fiberlink

Pros

The computer room was very clean and modern, and this company tried to keep current on software. At the time I was there, they were moving to VMware. The people were very pleasant, and they budgeted money for training. They had some smart people. Also, free lunch on Friday (you'll gain weight working there), and they allowed drinking beer at your desk. They figured you were an adult, and could be responsible.

There was no vacation policy. You decide what days and how much time you want to take for vacation.

Cons

They run a new-employee orientation every year, where you get to meet with executive staff. That's good; but, the program is run with a little too much enthusiasm for a workplace. They kind of want to take the realness out of people.

There is a bonus plan, but some of the goals are vague. When I was there a lot of people had left, and I believe it was related to goals and expectation.

It's a security company. They video monitor everything that goes on in the building. For example, I don't need to know that a hammer was still left out in the computer room floor by the security officer. However, it was helpful to have the guy on task when the computer room door inadvertently locked from the inside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication was good within departments. However communication between departments was a disaster. Encourage honesty ... if you make a mistake with client data and inadvertently publish information admit it to the client. Focus on getting the right things done over getting the client's money.
Money will come with good service and good technology - just be honest about what you're doing.

    I have been working at Fiberlink full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    WFH
    Free lunch, snack
    Maintaining SMB culture even after being acquired by IBM

    Cons

    Experienced people aren't paid equally based on skills, there's always a partiality based on college they're from. This resonates among lot of people who aren't from BITS or IITs

    Partiality in stock options and bonuses which aren't transparent

    Like some other reviews have noted, you will continue being an Engineer and there isn't professional growth as much as you technical growth.

    Work load is getting worse after IBM acquisition and not many people have been recruited to tackle this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent on pay and stock options

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
