I worked at SoftLayer

Pros

A huge knowledge base and good place to begin gaining experience in the job field.

Cons

The pay had to be raised and too many different job functions that can be done by one person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase pay and give people more responsibility within the company. Keep others busy within the company to prevent slacking.

    Pros

    If you are a Linux Person Tech or sales the opportunities are great. Anyone else don't expect much.

    Cons

    No appreciation for hard working employees with career minded goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the fact that even though we may have worked for the previous EV1 owners it doesn't mean we don't deserve a chance to succeed and be promoted within.
