    Pros

    Ran some large projects on the Global Data Center side. New data center build out in Denver was nice.

    Cons

    Need to live in Denver to progress. A little slow to adapt newer technologies. Been some internal change over of the old guard.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace Telecommuting, You are a technology company and this flexibility would allow to retain seasoned workers.

    Pros

    The people here are really friendly and easy to get along with. The office is relatively young and energetic. A lot of the engineers seem really committed and hard working. There are some extremely talented engineers here as well. It's a fun place to work and management really cares about keeping people happy.

    Cons

    The health insurance isn't great, but otherwise the compensation/benefits seem fine.

    Pros

    It's hands down the best work environment I've ever been in. The people are supportive and really care about your success and that of the company. We make some of the best products in our target markets and we are growing at an incredible pace. The culture is fantastic from management down to each individual and I always look forward to the challenges I get to solve every day.

    Cons

    Pay scales, especially for younger engineers are going to run a little on the lean side compared to other players when you first start. If you can deal with this and add value everyday and petition for more responsibility and keep asking how can you get better, you'll get raises after some time. They need to offer higher starting salaries though to stay competitive, even for just out of college level engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your younger employees more and start offering more small, frequent raises along with the bonuses, it will boost productivity and help with retention if people get small raises every year or every other year.

    Pros

    Decent Salary and the bonus plan is pretty good most of the time. They use the bonus plan as a retention plan in that the majority of the bonus is paid out once a year and you must be on the payroll to get the year end payout.

    Cons

    Very poor management within the engineering teams. They will not pay for any training, therefore we get thrown projects with new technology and it is assumed we can learn over the Web. This leads to frustrated engineers and delayed projects as we all struggle to come up to speed.
