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

ProsThe free lunch on Wednesday.

ConsThe company is a scary place. Senior leadership does not know how to run a hosting company. Hostway has downsized three time in the last year and fired the wrong people. Some employees are untouchable which means the hard working smart ones generally go in Hostway firing. Hostway is in serious financial trouble and they have to fire people to help pay a loan that they took out to buy the Fort Lauderdale office. The company will have to fire more and more in 2009 to make the payments. My prediction is Hostway will file for bankrupcy in 2009 or have to be sold.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to run a business. You are going down fast and you will continue to unless you get a turnaround expert in the Lead Staff team. Who is lead staff? lol. Nobody knows.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to learn if you a willing to put up with under compensation and are very self-guided.

    Hostway needs to take a good look around and see what they have lost and try to fix it.
