    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the benefits package and morale boosting outings are awesome and very appreciated, but raising the overall employee pay would help us retain some of the better employees and make us a more competitive company overall

    Former Employee - Customer Support Technician in Houston, TX

    I worked at SoftLayer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The technical knowledge gained can be useful in getting a position at another service provider.

    Cons

    The work environment is hostile, highly political, and not conducive to employee growth. Upward mobility is extremely difficult and only seems to occur thanks to attrition of long term employees. Training is almost non-existent. There seems to be a significant break down in the support organization's lines of communication between team and department managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your human resources are assets to be developed, not something to drain the life out of.
