I worked at Savvis

Pros

Good technical people. Team spirit at lower levels.

Cons

Its not my problem attitude among management.
Strange corporate structure.
Inability to say no to a major sale, even if there is no profit in it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would advise glassdoor to recognize that Philip J. Koen is no the CEO of Savvis and hasn't been since January.

    I have been working at Savvis

    Pros

    Savvis has solid management, with attention to finance, focus on customers, and operational stability. Management in the past wasn't always this solid; the new management deserves credit. In terms of products, Savvis provides network, hosting, and cloud services. If you want to work with technology involving networks, servers, storage, and security then Savvis offers plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    The flip-side of maturity in a company like Savvis, is that the work isn't always exciting and sometimes management is risk averse. Process such as "change management" can feel like a burden. Products are interesting, but not bleeding edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to take more risk; innovation involves failure, but is necessary to lead the market. Savvis must be more agile to compete with emerging cloud competitors, or it will lose business.

    Pros

    Savvis has opportunity for growth in the area of cloud computing.

    Cons

    The orgainzation operates in silos which do not connect well with each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Savvis must continue to improve support and operations. Sales and marketing need single leadership that understands both disciplines.
