    Challenging, unique experiences you won't find anywhere else

    Linux Systems Administrator III (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsExposure to a multitude of unique problems and situations. You will have to wade through an obscene amount of email tickets, but you will have those gems that stick out. You have opportunities to get industry certifications (RHCE, CMDBA, MSCE, CCNA, etc.) that will help you down the road.

    ConsI feel the culture diminished significantly when the company went public, though some irresponsible employees helped. If you're not working days, your workload will be significantly higher, despite the cited breakdown of servers per employee.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
