Hostway

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

ProsGood vacation time and holiday pay for most standard holidays with a typical option to work on those days if you want to.

ConsPay is not commensurate with industry standards with other hosting companies and there are hardly ever any reviews or raises at all, no opportunity for advancement to speak of, no feeling of having a career path here. Management is disjointed and does not disseminate information effectively so that all areas of the business know what's going on in order to do their jobs properly. Typical the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing situation.. management never listens to advice from the people who deal with the daily operations they make unilateral decisions without informing themselves of the best practices that should be taken into consideration while planning. They move very slowly on new technology development.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to sustain long term growth it is critical to involve the people in making business decisions who will actually be supporting the products you intend to sell. That will make for happier, more satisfied customers as well as more satisfied employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be fun, but with long hours and average pay. Change in management and a reorg made the environment dry.

    Lucas Roh is the worst CEO in US History. You cannot trust Lucas. Lucas is a liar.
