    I worked at Equinix

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay package, nice hard working people, growing company with global presence.

    Cons

    IT is like a sweatshop, where people are expected to hangon late (like beyond 7pm) even on fridays and even if there is no ciritcal or time sensitive work, coming after 9 AM is questioned, spending 40 hours is considered 'not working hard', people are being monitored when they enter or exit office building. Team members steal others idea and it is encouraged. Hard working and sincere people get sidelined and incompetents reap all the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people like humans.
