    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 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.

    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 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

    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 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.

    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 Management

    Kill major projects that are doomed to fail anyway, clean up the balance sheet, and start fresh.
