    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Andover, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Andover, MA

    I worked at NaviSite as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to new and current technologies.

    Cons

    - Professionalism is at a low level in this company.
    - Management allows people with known mental health issues to train new employees which is a recipe for disaster.
    - Favoritism appears to be rampant as well as sabotage of employees.
    - My supervisor was completely uninvolved with my progress and made it very clear from the beginning he had no interest in my work.
    - Lack of diversity - this company does not appear to hire any minorities other than Indian and even they were few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved with individual teams and find out what's going on from an employee perspective.

    I have been working at NaviSite

    Pros

    Flexible work at home, stable list of clients. Have to be self motivator,

    Cons

    Salary levels are below market, looking for Time Warner to change this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the sales team, they are very weak. Cant sell a deal without having client facing teams holding their hands. Start to clean out the management tier from Surebridge, they form too tight a club, which prevents growth of talent. Put some decent management in India, current management is poor and does not know how to retain talent.

    Pros

    Lots of technology, you can get to work on different projects where you might learn new products. It is a plus.

    Cons

    no salary increases, even if you get goo reviews, do not expect any increases. Negotiate your salary before you start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of good talent in the company but there is no motivation. You work a lot and no rewards

    Disorganized

    I have been working at NaviSite

    Pros

    The office floor was always quiet.

    Cons

    I worked in the Santa Clara office briefly after my company was acquired. Many of the florescent lights kept flickering or were off completely. My cube was on the 2nd floor over their computer room on the 1st floor and the floor vibrated constantly. I inquired with the maintenance guy there, but nothing got done about any of this.

    My fellow employees all seemed down all the time. I found it little depressing. I never saw much organization there or vision from the top. They just seemed to have scattered projects without one vision or identity. The management structure also seemed unclear. My team's manager had about 5 people above him and even he said he was unclear who reported to whom.

    Based on what I was told, they bought my old company because we had one super-customer whose business they wanted. Shortly after Navisite bought my company, they lost this customer. Rather than keeping us all to work on other projects, they laid us all off. Then, they tried to hire me back on contract (and at least one other coworker I know of), but without benefits and at the same salary (and the contract would only be for a certain period, like a few months, and then would have to be renewed).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Navisite management is to become more organized and communicate a clear vision to the employees. Also, get those florescent lights fixed in the Santa Clara office.
