I have been working at Savvis

Pros

Casual, laid-back environment with a decent amount of room for personal and professional growth. However, in locations other than headquarters, there's a definite limit to what you can achieve, having seen what goes on in the headquarters

Cons

Lack of technical growth opportunities when working at a non-HQ location

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Where people are physically located has no bearing on their ability to perform a job.

    Pros

    There are great products and great potential. The vision has been lacking but seems to be coming back around. Great flexibility.

    Cons

    Wrong people in wrong positions. People who should not be managers are in lead positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep your talent and reward them. Too many good people are leaving

    Pros

    The engineers are very eager to share information with one another. I have learned a great deal while working here, and have opportunities to advance as my knowledge increases. Company has good benenfits, and amazing PTO (four weeks vacation as soon as you start).

    Cons

    Savvis is still fairly young, and is still going through a few growing pains. There are communication breakdowns, as with any company. Executives tend to get regular bonuses, although "regular folks" won't even get raises this year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the organization isn't doing well enough for employees to get raises, I don't think that the CEO and other execs should get the massive bonuses they receive either.
