    I worked at Verio full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    They hire managers from the soviet USSR era that treat their employees like soliders at boot camp.

    I worked at Verio full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The promise of their new cloud service offering is highly compelling...once it is fully released.

    Cons

    Micromanagement has become oppressive, and far too much infighting amongst the groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need a dynamic CEO...don't see the current one having the backbone to lead the effort in a productive, prioritized manner. Only 1 in 5 staff who posted here approve of the CEO. That's not the sort of leader Verio needs now.
