Pros

Smart coworkers, fun people, free lunch on Fridays, pets can come in to work (with support engineers and network engineers), working with Internet backbone is relatively interesting, datacenters are awesome

Cons

Without hard technical skills, difficult to move ahead, no real corporate ladder to climb, some say medical compensation is low for those with families

Advice to Management

Thanks for being available all the time!

    Pros

    Flexibility while on the job, opportunity to grow your technical skills, incentives to get certifications. Staff and admins are overall great.

    Cons

    Part-timers can get promoted to full-time (after some hoops to jump through) and do the same work, but get paid significantly less. Strange hoops to jump through with petty rewards. Despite making it sound like a developer position, few programming tasks and a terrible environment to code in. Impersonal atmosphere -- you are a replaceable cog in a machine. No real way to move up the ladder as there was no real management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Shift coverage is uneven. Please make it clear what you expect from employees. Hiring people you expect to go full-time as part-time in an attempt to pay them less drives down morale.

    Great learning experience, but a little disorganized and limited opportunities.

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is never hostile, most co-workers are very helpful and friendly, the work pace is typically relaxed, they promote education through their programs.

    Cons

    There is a bit of disorganization in terms of information and equipment, sometimes people lack initiative to do work, limited advancement opportunities, and sometimes there are delays in communication.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep things more organized, enforce work discipline a little more strictly, and pay more attention to off-shifts.
