Be The First To
15% of the CEO
Pros – Good benefits
They have paid out bonuses every year
Good people to work with
Cons – Company rotates its CEO from NTT Communications every 3-5 years. Each one tries drive the company into a new direction.
Promotions are practically non-existent
Financial decisions are short sighted
Advice to Senior Management – The CEO shuffle would be okay if there was a fixed direction that other members of the leadership team were taking the company. Being yes-men when the new CEO wants to go in a crazy new direction has resulted in negative company growth.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Some of the people working here are great. The problem is that most just punch the clock. This company needs great people and Management with a vision.
Cons – Management and company focus. This company needs great people and Management with a vision.
Advice to Senior Management – Get a CEO that can grow this business with a clear vision. Hire that person from an successful American Based Hosting company or technology company.
Pros – Verio is a great entry into business sales and solutions. Put your head down and work you will be fine at Verio.
Cons – Owned by a large international business do not care much about Verio
Pros – Enjoyed working here. Overall I learned alot and had ample opportunity to grow within my position.
Cons – Upper management issues caused the focus of the company to be skewed.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – In early 2000 verio's Orem office had a great environment. Things went progressively downhill as they tried to merge divergent office cultures and then later forced Japanese management style into the creative process.
Cons – Every 3-6 years the parent company rotates in under qualified people from Japan into leadership positions to micromanage the US staff. While a few have been well intentioned most become tyrants. Upper management won't make decisions or take responsibility.
Advice to Senior Management – Find a vision, share the vision, stick to it. Don't rotate in temporary staff at such influential positions. Take the handcuffs off of your managers. Pay attention to customers and employees. Make some decisions.

Pros – Learning new technologies, free coffee, free water.
Ping pong table.
video game tournaments during the work day.
Cons – They hire managers from the soviet USSR era that treat their employees like soliders at boot camp.
Advice to Senior Management – Stay where you are -- this is where you belong.
Pros – Decent work-life balance and industry appropriate pay and benefits. I still believe Verio's cloud offerings can succeed in the target markets once they are enhanced to fully serve the client's actual needs.
Cons – Leadership should be laser focused on getting their cloud offerings featured enabled to be compelling, well documented and formally released, not quietly soft released. Communicate more openly with a shared understanding that client adoption is the goal to success. Overly process bound on getting anything advanced internally. Less than 20% of the past or present staff approve of the CEO, which speaks volumes.
Advice to Senior Management – Forgo the Japanese hierarchical management style; it just doesn't work. Many great ideas within the Boca office can and should be actively sought by leadership. Architect the offerings to exceed prospect's needs (think and then innovate like Steve Jobs.) Promote the enhanced services aggressively by advertising and social media engaging much more proactively and consistently to the target prospect community.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Unfortunately, there are very few pros at this point other than what you'll see in other reviews, with regard to it "being a paycheck. Verio had plenty going for it over the last 15 years, but has frittered it all away.
Cons – No vision. No effective leadership. The company has made a couple big bets strategically over the last few years and they have been very bad bets and in areas the company simply was not prepared to deal with. This has created a defeated mentality and what little culture there is at the company is one of "just do what I'm told to survive."
Advice to Senior Management – Kill major projects that are doomed to fail anyway, clean up the balance sheet, and start fresh.

Maturity, management, culture, all of that does not exist.
Advice to Senior Management – Become non-profit educational company, seriously.
Pros – good wages with advancement possibilities. i've enjoyed the people that i've been able to work with and have had some great supervisors
Cons – lack of training. company is moving forward with new technology but then leaves accounts on old systems meaning that support needs to figure out how to support multiple systems that aren't in deveopment any more
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
