  1.  

    One of the best companies I've had the privilege of working for.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Support in Gloucester, England (UK)

    I have been working at Fasthosts Internet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Simple Staff benefits often overlooked - Fizzy Drinks, Espresso Machine, Tea and Coffe as well as fruit, all free. Fully supportive of training people in areas they want to progress in, will even help with the costs of training. Actively encourage promotion from within rather than looking first to external candidates where possible. Twice yearly awesome all included parties (Summer and Xmas). Backing from management to help you achieve your expectations.

    Cons

    The company is starting to outgrow its current premises and need to quickly find a solution to this as space is getting more and more limited. Shift work (To be expected in a 24/7 operation) can be taxing on personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be of benefit to have more 24/7 areas of the business (Especially over weekends). On call should be on call for anything not just very urgent, highly important issues (If things affect only one person, they can more often than not have to wait until the following week for example).

    I worked at Fasthosts Internet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They let us run the sales side as we needed to and plenty of vacation time.

    Cons

    UK management did not understand the US market and we're not agile enough to change.
