    I have been working at NaviSite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Navisite offers good pay and provides better work life balance than my previous companies. No micro management and people listen to you when you have good suggestions.

    Cons

    No Bonus and career growth is limited. This company is matrix driven with limited hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should more opportunities to show case one's skills for better positions and better pay.

    I worked at NaviSite full-time

    Pros

    NaviSite made an early push into the cloud along with some major investments in technology so this was a great place to gain early cloud experience.

    Cons

    Place was a bit dysfunctional with changes in management and the Time Warner cable acquisition. Sales typically over-promised and the operations team was not staffed to the level required resulting in many unhappy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a strategy and stick to it.

    Not the same as it was under new management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NaviSite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    exposure to various technologies
    Some good managers

    Cons

    new management is all about numbers. They believe they can cut people to save money and hire temps from India to fill in when needed. Sometimes valuable knowledge leaves and new temps don't have time to ramp up leading to unsatisfied customers. Listen to employees to often unless you were part of the new regime you opinion doesn't matter and good people
    have left.
    salary is usually lower due to hiring from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on a direction and focus on it. Navisite is position well for growth so don't miss out. Focus on retention of exp people with less temp h1b visas.

    Pros

    competitive salary, decent benefits, relaxed workplace, flexible hours and telecommuting. Co-workers easy to get along with

    Cons

    lost its identity after being bought by Time Warner Cable. Parent company exerting too much control. Even though understaffed, there were times where employees were shuffled around due to cubicle constraints. 401k plan not up to par

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    beef up the staff or the employees will start leaving in droves
