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

Pros

Worked with really smart and great people. The company in the early 2000's cared a lot about the employees and keeping us happy. Ping ping, pool, food and drinks. A lot of learning options too.

Cons

Cliquish at times, and the company went in many different business directions. Exec team changes as often as some people change their underwear... Lots of re-orgs etc. Constant fear of layoffs at the time.

    The people are nice. The management is clueless

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

    Pros

    There are a number of people - particularly at the old iServer offices (Utah) - that are nice, intelligent, and have a clue about hosting.

    Cons

    The management is all driven by marketing and M&A - without any real understanding of the underlying business. This disconnect leads to serial poor decisions and sustained pressure on the employees. Layoffs happen frequently, and the entire company would be gone if not for sustained support from the parent corporation. Those with the most mobility (best education, most experience, strongest prospects) are all going or gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganizing teams does not equal productivity.

    I worked at Verio

    Pros

    Mostly stable, only 4 major layoffs in 15 years
    Punch the clock, keep your head down, and get paid
    Guaranteed bailout thanks to NTT

    Cons

    Puppet company controlled completely by NTT
    Not even lip service to "core" values
    Many positions simply rotated out every few years to Japan
    No quality in management or products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a reason to enjoy their work and maybe they'll make something worth selling

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
