    Wonderful place to work

    Development (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsLots of autonomy, company culture is fun, lots of helpful people. Great teams, solid leadership. Work-life balance is awesome.

    ConsOrganizational structure is a bit loose. They're in the process of defining their roles and requirements, and so a lot is left to the employees to figure out. Upper leadership still holds decision-making power on just about every decision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees to make decisions without you watching over their shoulders. Trust that we all want ServerCentral to succeed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work! Recommended

    Datacenter Technician (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Pros- great people to work with
    - very good training compared to other places I've worked
    - work schedule that allows for better work/life balance than most places
    - if you nerd out about datacenters then this is the place to be

    ConsI think they are bringing in on too many people without having a clear path for advancement. In my case, it led to burnout and I eventually left to pursue other opportunities. I think if they get that issue straightened out ServerCentral will earn that fifth star from me.

    Feels like home

    (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsWithout corporate structure, there are no barriers between an employee being able to showcase skills. There's a lot of opportunity to share ideas too. A recent college grad could ask the entire company to change its email signature, and it would happen as long as there was decent logic behind the suggestion. I love working here and it's fun being part of something growing so fast.

    ConsYou have to be the best at your job to get here, and to stay here.

    Fun company

    Employee (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsSmall, transparent company. There's very little secrecy, and no crazy hierarchy to deal with. Everyone there is great to work with, with plenty of outside-of-work activities if you want to participate.

    ConsSince it is so small, there's no promotion path. Bosses tend to micromanage things. There's very little in the way of project/product/task "ownership" for employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut some trust in your employees and let them do what they do best.
