Going through a reorg and management is out to prove themselves worthy of sticking around.

CIO ORG Side (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

ProsThere is room for upward mobility within your career. Plenty of overtime if you are an hourly employee. 1 Savvis is a really nice building to work in.

ConsThe CIO Organization management tries to squeeze every last drop of blood out of the stone as possible. The company has grown by hundreds of employees over the last year and management has gone without adding to the internal infrastructure. There are too many levels of management which impedes on corporate agility and innovation. There is a lot of red tape so it is quite fitting that Savvis has chosen red as their corporate color. Savvis does not choose to employ a service oriented management style where they leave the lower employees to make the day-to-day decisions and try to remove roadblocks to help them be more agile. No. This is the send-the-question-up-the-chain and get approval, which management is too busy to do, style of management. The very rigid top down, cannot-will-not-surrender-control, type management. If you do not like to be micromanaged then this is not the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementA job is a business transaction between two parties and both parties must be satisfied, not just Savvis. Eliminate unnecessary layers of management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
