I worked at Verio full-time

Pros

Verio is owned by the deep-pocketed NTT Communications group, so layoffs (when they happen) are generous in severance (3-6 months, depending on tenure). Most of the people are nice, every-day people.

Cons

There have been so many shakeups and restructuring, corporate decapitations and layoffs over the years that people are really in survival mode.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Either find a core product that you can get behind (that the market will buy) or else sell your customer base to the highest bidder.

    I worked at Verio full-time for 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 for 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.
