Pros

- It's a great place to learn skills.
- Highly dynamic work environment

Cons

- Hostile management
- Heavily favours social circles when selecting promotions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Eliminate the social circle support structure and reward good work with opportunities and further training. Punish poor management decisions and remove those individuals to encourage a fair decision making process on process improvements and promotions.

    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I have been working at Hostopia.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of technologies to work with and gain experience with. Cisco, HP, NetApp, VMWare to name a few. Very relaxed atmosphere when all is going well or not a lot of workload.

    Cons

    No training what so ever. Bad professional culture with a "figure it out mentality" when things in IT should be more standardized and stable. Unrealistic expectations from management at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to re-focus and recommit to training their new employees professionally and not just tell them to search for solutions in the internet. The company invests millions in technology and systems why not invest a mere few thousands for professional training? The return of investment will create more stability in the IT Department and more employee retention. Also, pay market value for your IT employees. System Administrators here are being paid way below market value and for the work they're expected to do. These are the main reason why there is so much turnover in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami IT Department. Fix these things and you will have higher retention and committed professionals.

    Pros

    Great people, decent atmosphere, lots of different systems. Friendly. If you're looking for experience, and willing to put up with some disorganization, look no further.

    Cons

    Very disorganized company. Management seems very green.
