    Pros

    Great place to work, smart professional employees. And, the ability to be great.

    Cons

    The company is a conglomerate of other companies. This leads to distinct dysfunction that is hurting the customer experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The most Dysfunctional group is the Leadership in the customer experience group. In fighting, and childish alliances keep the true mission in the background. Stop! Empower your team mates to do the right thing for customers.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work, however there is not guidelines and procedures that are followed. It is like 'flying by the seat of your pants' management.

    Cons

    Management needs to be trained

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency is vital

    I have been working at Peer 1 Hosting full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros at Peer 1 would definitely be the culture, and they invite you to be yourself at work. Not to mention the fun annual ping pong tournaments, social committee meet-ups, and game room here at the office. Plus you can wear pretty much whatever you want.

    Cons

    I'd say we could use a little more training for people who are new to hosting (including people outside of sales). You sort-of learn as you go about products, offerings, etc;, unless you proactively schedule meetings with managers to have them walk you through the process.

    I have been working at Peer 1 Hosting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love the relaxed culture of Peer 1 and am happy to come to work every day. I work with fun, intelligent and caring people who make this a great place. While the actual benefits are average, the flexibility of my schedule and the ability I have to shape my own career every day are perks that I am not planning to let go of as long as I can advance here. I also appreciate the support I get from my entire department - I know they all want me to be successful, and will help/guide me along the way.

    Cons

    The company is definitely in a growth phase right now, with a lot of growing pains. I do believe things are going to be even better, but it is going to take a little while to smooth out the rough edges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see more formal training/development plans for all peers in the future, and I do believe this is something the company is working towards.

    Pros

    Coming in as "your authentic self"; Vocal leadership; Transparent and even corporate structure

    Cons

    Pay-rate is moderately competitive compared to others in the market; current corporate structure - while innovate - is in flux, which could be a problem for some people (not me)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the improvements being made, as this first year of new management has brought on more positive change than in recent memory. Keep it going!

    Pros

    Peer 1 cares about it's employees and the executives strive to make themselves available to employees. I have learned a great deal from great people.

    Cons

    Peer 1 has some great employees and sometimes they rely on this to attempt to achieve too many different priorities.

    Pros

    Great Peers (employees). Positive culture. All are encouraged to be authentic.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect in what leadership believes and what the organization experiences. For instance, the company likes to think that they don't treat their employees like resources when in fact they do. My exit interview comments took the HR person by surprise, but they were new in their position and didn't have the history to know better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to connect with what is really going on. You will be surprised at what you will learn.

    Try to have a laid back culture . They want to have an open door policy but again on their terms

    Pros

    Treat you like an adult, you have a voice, always trying to get better, cares about the people, flexible work environment for performers

    Cons

    No processes, top management does not have management education - so simple known working strategies are not found here, some of the good 'ol boy stuff so you have to prepared to schmooze

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things are getting better, they need a COO
