Interesting, recognises effort but more suited to younger members of the workforce

Product Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsEffort is recognised and rewarded appropriately. comfortable and friendly surroundings. Overall very caring of employees personal welfare.

ConsThe playful elements of the culture they try to espouse would be more attractive to younger people. I would say from a UK perspective for a graduate wanting to enter the hosting sector. For them it is a very exciting proposition. However for me a seasoned Product Manager with over 17 years of experience in the industry, I found that in the UK there was not much room for my professional growth. Also the fact that PEER1 is spread over multiple time zones and geographical locations, I found it very challenging at times to coordinate efforts in getting things done.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognise that some of the elements of the PEER1 values need to be modified to be more attractive to the more experienced professional. Perhaps certain functions such as Product Development and Finance should be regional in nature, rather than run from a global perspective.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would not recommend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Peer 1 Hosting full-time for less than a year

    Pros: Easy-going, not much else to say here. Cons: - Poor work environment - Hires low skilled staff - Poor processes and management - Constant incessant nagging to be involved in some pathetic Americanised social events. -… Advice to Senior Management: Stop patting yourself on the back. Your sales figures are good because you acquired another company in the UK - 50% of UK staff… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
