    Pros

    I made awesome new friends and improved my knowledge significantly.

    Cons

    This review is only about The Support department - NOC Team.
    Management is the worst i ever had to deal with in my entire life.
    They simply treat their employees like slaves! Stand up against them and you'll be fired...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I honestly believe that managers of the support department should be replaced with people who are more open to listen to employees and care about the team.

    Peers were great however management seemed indifferent to the suffering of the staff.

    I worked at Phoenix NAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One thing that everyone liked were the benefits of working there, like free soda and tea. Also free lunches made in house, decent insurance coverage for the employee.

    Cons

    While the personal growth available may have been good no one wanted to learn anything new due to the managements process of making you responsible for more projects without compensation for the additional responsibility. The work-life balance was almost non-existent. Promotions were a joke, Their idea of a promotion was as I stated before more responsibility with an almost non-existent pay increase. The company had no incentive for the employees working 2nd and 3rd shift, just work it or leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to upper management would be to start listening to employees that have already left the company in the last 6 months. Pay your employees what they deserve as an IT professional. Stop grinding up your employees and spitting them out like unimportant grease in your wheels that simply help you to slide by. Give employees more reason to come to work, to be excited to work for your company. Getting discounts on gym memberships is not enough, when they don't make enough money to pay for the membership and the company provided insurance for their families. Take a look at what other companies are paying their employees and at least match them.

    Pros

    Free lunch, decent benefit package. Well funded due their sister company (which is why it was built) that makes most of their money from porn website billing (CCBill).

    Cons

    What they want one day quickly changes the next. Honesty is not a core value for their management team and there is no loyalty. None of their opperational management team has any business experience outside of this employer as they started as entry level employees and worked their way. The CEO is a chiropractor turned business man who'd rather fly around the world courting porn stars than tending to his business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and realize you are not as big as you think you are. You are still a small start up with little to no business sense.

    An Internet company that offers a lot of promotional advancement.

    Pros

    FREE LUNCH! Every day! Cooks on staff. Treats employees well. Able to take days off with little prior notice. Ease to talk to boss. Plenty of down time. As this is a web hosting company, employees are given free server and bandwidth usage. A HUGE perk as most people here are tech experts that want to experiment with new software as it is released. Space given to everyone free of charge.

    Cons

    Like most larger companies, trying to get projects up and running requires a lot of hurdles and red-tape that you must clear through. Not the easiest way of trying to get web sites and servers up and running. The separation of the headquarters from the sales team office has created some internal confusion, but that should be corrected as everyone settles into the new office.

    Pros

    fully secured safe building - Company provides Lunch and for the most part pays for benefits.

    Cons

    As this is the first attempt at building a Datacenter there are some things that could have been done differently and planned out better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    again as this is the first attempt at a Datacenter, channels need to be opened to all employees for ideas from the ground level up.
