I worked at SoftLayer full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

amenities (free snacks and drinks).
reasonably loose atmosphere.
good supervisors (most shortcomings come from higher up)

Cons

barely competitive pay.
lots of internal bureaucracy.
expect little or no annual raises unless you are able to move up.
company does not stand behind their employees.
investors control the flow of money.
if you can't move up you will quickly feel at a dead end doing repetitive tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop treating employees as expendable robots.
