    6. Work from home

    Pros

    Polite people do work here

    Cons

    Little sense of urgency in serving customers. Since ownership won't staff up, it gets chaotic and customers get pissed off.

    I have been working at A2 Hosting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with industry veterans from home, and they do provide decent health, dental and optical insurance. They offer a 401K and a few other perks like performance bonuses every quarter.

    Cons

    You use your own equipment, pay for your own Internet, and end us with less PTO and pay than with other employers. The work is not load balanced, so if your colleagues are not self-motivated you end up doing all of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling shared hosting. It is a diminishing return.

    I worked at A2 Hosting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    if you keep your head down and get lots of responses, you will be fine, get bonuses in fact over people trying to actually fix things!

    Cons

    told to respond over fixes
    little to no training (thats ok, you won't need it for responses!)
    management has become more and more fractured over the years (5 until today I have heard it will change, we are hiring more people, etc, etc, etc, basically feel lied to on many fronts)
    lipservice is the name of the game / take what they say at face value in regards to health matters

    Advice to Management

    seriously, its time to look at yourself using the same microscope you have put every fired employee under, and stop with the constant vauge threats

    do you want low morale?
    cuz thats how you get low morale....

    Thank you for the review! With a largely remote workforce it can be difficult to feel as part of a team so I'm happy to read things are going well.

    I have been working at A2 Hosting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home is great so I can be here when my kids get off the bus. The staff really cares about each other and wants to make the company better. Management gives my dev team the flexibility to deliver code built to our standards and in our timeline. We work with management to develop timeline based on the deliverables they need. Free lunch anytime we are in the office. Proper agile workflow with 2 week sprints and time devoted to both planning and demo/review/retrospective.

    Cons

    None that I wouldn't have in any other dev position such as occasional emergency projects that pop-up unannounced or repetitive changes to the same thing to get it "just right".

    Thank you for the comments! In the IT industry it's true that things can pop-up unannounced to stay current, of course. We try to limit those situations, when possible, but they can't all be... More
