Pros

Industry leader in the hosting,web and cloud.

Cons

Severe overwork of sr. solution engineers. No balance between work and family life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to the technical people that work at Savvis. They need to be heard if there's an issue. Management at Savvis was poor and lacked communications and competency in many aspects.

    Pros

    Internet Hosting company puts you to work servicing some of the Internet's biggest names. The company's data centers are pretty technologically advanced, and working in them does have some degree of prestige. The health benefits are fair, and there is an ESPP.

    Cons

    The company is based out of Saint Louis, and has offices around the globe. Many sattelite offices appear overlooked, with favor instead placed on Saint Louis employees and offices. Is a career path in a location outside the "favored area" (STL) worth it? Not really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support Jim. He has a vision, and is probably the only person, at this point, who can right the ship. Too much time has been devoted to reorgs, and not enough time has been given to fix things that have been disfunctional for years.

    Pros

    Feeling empowered
    Focus on learning and growth
    Creative atmosphere for new ideas to be born
    Visionary CEO
    Caring people who have an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    Mergers and acquisitions have caused our systems to not be fully integrated. This is something that is being worked on today, however, and we have a road map to tackle this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is focused on the right things to drive employee engagement and strong returns to the shareholders and invetsors. Keep doing more of the same.
