I have been working at Savvis full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Objectively speaking, the company has a nice portfolio of managed services that are on par or better than the competition. The culture is good - sales org is a lot of fun and good work atmosphere. As are the service teams.

Cons

Dysfunctional in the delivery and ops side of the house.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get real about financials. Company needs to invest into R&D to mature it's product set and get to market more quickly. Also needs to focus on profitability - or at least have a plan for it.

    Pros

    Excellent management. Ethical corporation. Lots of long-term employees who know a lot about the company and where it needs to go, mixed with a new and enthusiastic bunch of Agile teams.

    Cons

    Parent company (CenturyLink) doesn't share the Savvis vision. In the long run, the Savvis dedication to excellence may be diluted by CenturyLink's dedication to mediocrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fix what isn't broken!

    Pros

    Good compensation and some people are knowledgeable in their professions

    Cons

    Poor management. All yes-men at the top. This company is going nowhere. They're so disorganized that they don't know what they're doing. There's so much in-fighting between groups that nothing gets accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone at the director and higher levels, and let CenturyLink take over.
