    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Cervalis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This was the starting point of my accounting career and I learned a lot form my boss and co-workers.

    Cons

    Don't have much to say about the company, but needed a good procedure policy.

    Advice to Management

    Be generous and flexible with employees.

    I have been working at Cervalis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team is the single most important reason. Everyone is down the earth and works really well with each other. There are always exception but at Cervalis they are negligible.
    The other best reason would be management. It is pretty straight forward. No hidden agendas eg. "do this or there will be consequences". Very accommodating and fair.

    Cons

    The company is very cheap when it comes to its own equipment especially for senior staff. Sort of like the shoemakers kids situation.

    I worked at Cervalis full-time

    Pros

    Great People, Great Work Environment. Close-knit group. I've got to say that it was a true pleasure working there and meeting some great people.

    Cons

    Some of the people are a little loopy. Some lady in marketing went nuts one time in front of a customer. Another guy refused to work nights.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep on working on keeping the company friendly and small. No headaches, no problems.

    I have been working at Cervalis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots and lots of overtime. Shifts frequently need coverage which can be good if you want to double your paycheck with all the overtime. They encourage and reimburse for certification exams. If you're willing to travel, new shifts become available fairly frequently allowing you to change between night/mid/day shifts.

    Cons

    It's not a difficult job, but opportunities to learn new skills and practice existing skills are scarce. There is no formal training program, so every employee has a different understanding of company practices. Advancement opportunities are at a minimum. The upper support tiers have been there for years and until they retire, there is absolutely no upward mobility. Many people on the bottom tier have been working the same position for years with no expectation of moving higher.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a continuing training program for all the technicians to allow all the workers an even playing field. Right now, the older workers are disgruntled. The newer workers don't have the same knowledge and experience they do and, at the moment, there's no real opportunity to fix that.


  7. "Good people burdened by incompetent management."

    Pros

    Paid overtime is on pro here.

    Cons

    Incompetent management too easily throws employees under a bus.

    Advice to Management

    Fire middle management and hire a team with demonstrated leadership skills to embark on a focused program to develop employees at all levels with positive enhancements to training and work life and thereby enhance the value added the employees represent to Cervalis and their clients.
