I have been working at Hurricane Electric

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

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