    Pros

    The people... all the way up to the C-Level folks. Market leaders and further distancing themselves from the 2nd tier players.
    Compensation

    Cons

    Long days, and long nights. We talk about work-life balance, but I haven't seen it.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your star performers. Look back at the projects people have been involved in and reward accordingly.

    Pros

    Honestly, the people here are what make this company. Every person here is just amazing - and that includes the C-levels.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy - the company seems to hire lots of managers, Directors, VPs...and not enough folks to work for them.

    Pros

    The company was built on a great business plan: to be the global interconnection hub for the internet.
    Pays well.

    Cons

    Self-congratulatory attitude
    Too many incompetent people in senior management - particularly marketing.
    No upward mobility or opportunities for internal transfers.
    Sycophantic culture that rewards credit-stealing and making - but not keeping - big promises

    Advice to Management

    Don't confuse a degree from a prestigious college with ability.
    Get out of your offices and walk around

    Pros

    the pay and the stock was great.....some cool people.

    Cons

    Marketing leadership didn't know how to organize a campaign, couldn't align on messaging, and were so caught up in power struggles they never got anything done. Didn't value in-house talent and was way too top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    hire a proper CMO, stop letting sales dominate, invest in marketing professionals who know how to run partnerships, design campaigns, and execute well.

    Pros

    Free breakfast sometimes, which is nice because you barely have time to eat, and real lunch breaks are a joke.

    Cons

    Do you like working in a toxic environment, where politics reign and people stab each other in the back at all times? Do you thrive in a workplace where your boss talks to you in negative ways about your coworkers, and talks to them about you in the same way? Do you like working in "teams" where no one communicates and everyone is out for his or her own agenda? A place where chaos thrives, and people are always racing to complete overlapping projects with barely enough time to breathe, and you are bullied by your own "teammates?" Do you like bosses who are so nervous and concerned with getting ahead, they are always on edge, and even curse and yell at their team members in meetings? Do you like phony people, and being told you have to be just as phony and brown nose people just to keep your job? If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions, then Equinix is the place for you. Note: I gave the place one star only because I had to give it something in order to process this review.

    Advice to Management

    I'd offer advice, but no one will take it, so there really is no point. Management is a group of backstabbing phonies who are only out for their own good. They don't care about their employees.
