    I have been working at CoreSite (More than a year)

    Pros

    -CoreSite and the data center REIT industry have had amazing returns over the past few years.

    -CoreSite in runs very lean, less bureaucracy.

    -Successful/motivated employees are recognized and fast tracked into management positions or are allowed switch departments into a more desirable role.

    -Young and positive company mindset with little micromanagement.

    -Benefits are decent
    -Pay for non sales related jobs is okay.
    -Excellent compensation in sales.
    -Office space and location are nice.

    Cons

    Very few,

    -Out of the leading data center REITS, CoreSite is the only one that does not have an international presence. This isn't a terrible con, but something that leaves to be desired for some employees.

    -minor office politics, but this is really expected at any corporation.

    Advice to Management

    -Management runs well overall, not sure why other reviews are so critical. The company experienced excellent growth under Tom Ray.

    -There could be more communication between HQ in Denver and the field locations around the country. A lot of us in Denver have no idea what is going on at the sites.

    -There could be more diversity in skill sets across the board. Not everyone has to come from the same industry background to be successful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CoreSite (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview on multiple management levels in person or by phone. In person and phone interview was a score card of pre-determined applicant questions. There was no personality in the interview process or function of feeling out the position from a personal perspective.
