    I have been working at Codero full-time

    Pros

    Very engaging, friendly, and fun work.

    Cons

    The pay could be a bit higher to meet the same standard as other companies who require near the same skill level to operate effectively.

    I have been working at Codero full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's been a lot of changes over the last 12 months but all for the good! The Executive leadership at this company is outstanding and has a very clear vision of where the company is headed. I'm relatively new to the organization but it is truly an exciting time to be a part of the Codero mission! This is a company that genuinely cares about providing the best possible service to its customers and because of that...

    I have been working at Codero full-time

    Pros

    - Previous CEO's bad leadership and decision-making mistakes, are being corrected - Fun people to work with - Most of the time the office is an enjoyable place to work

    Cons

    - Pay is way below industry average - Tools are old and equipment is even older - Investors know nothing about the hosting industry

    Advice to Management

    - Understand this industry - Don't set unrealistic expectations - To hold on to people you have to pay them fairly

    I worked at Codero

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities from some very knowledgeable people Decent place to get your foot in the door Pretty friendly and casual environment, that is until you start asking questions or the ceo has one of his "meetings"

    Cons

    There was literally no onboarding of new employees. Environment is very volatile. Often times it's very stressful Very high turnover (unnecessarily)

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a training program. All companies train new employees the way they like things to be done. Some sort of onboarding is definitely needed. My first day was to shadow another employee on incoming phone calls and chat support. That was until the very first call was a very angry customer. My training stopped there and never resumed. Adopt better businesses practices. Breaking your own policies because an...

    I have been working at Codero full-time

    Pros

    Codero is a special place. Especially if you want to have a career in tech, this is a good place. It feels like family. Everyone is helpful. You will also enjoy work with smart people in the company and learn. The important thing for me is that the office is laid back. You will instantly get the feel that you are part of a team and a family. I found that people are always ready to help. Customers are generally happy …

    Cons

    Some inconsistencies. Some departments are really good-- others are not. The work is intense at times and your expected to hit the ground running. New employee on-boarding is not well done. Understaffed in some areas, and slow to hire.

    Advice to Management

    Accept Change - As the company grows, encourage the evolution of the workplace with things like work from home. Look at the groups in the company with high morale, and learn from them. There is a lot of talent, and lots of good ideas here. Don’t overlook. More joint activities between groups and locations.

      Pros

      There was cross-divisional collaboration and a sense of team.

      Cons

      CEO micro manages everyone and there is no structure in the sales department

      Advice to Management

      Hire sales management, then let them do their job

      Pros

      Great place to get your foot in the door in a growing industry. Benefits start immediately. Austin office is very laid back, and very open feel. Love the location off 360. In Marketing, good budget producing a good number of leads to a talented sales team. Support team seems to try hard, but lacks stable management and adequate training to avoid daily fires leading to an "everyone pile on to fix" mentality. Guess...

      Cons

      CEO micro-manages every department, but offers no real value based on what I've seen. Seems to consume management teams' time with endless meetings to berate them for the company's failures. (Thankfully I'm not in those meetings, but does the CEO not realize how thin the walls are or how ridiculous his temper tantrums and fist-banging sound to anyone within earshot?). In all my previous jobs, CEOs were too busy developing...

      Advice to Management

      Find a real CEO with business savvy who's capable of empowering his managers to do their jobs before another talented employee leaves. Sales director is without question the best I've seen and the VP of marketing is excellent as well, however sales and marketing seem to get the brunt of the CEO's abuse.

      I worked at Codero full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      There may be a good product opportunity around hybrid performance hosting, but a lot of work will need to be done to counter Amazon and other bigger hosting companies

      Cons

      The CEO is one of the most abusive and unprofessional individuals I've experienced in years. He demands 100% control of everything. Any differing opinions are met with face to face screaming and insults in front of a room of individuals or even on a company-wide video conference. He has no shame or self-control. If you are actually able to succeed you will not get credit and if something goes differently than the CEO...

      Advice to Management

      Stop the deals of the month which simply restart every month. This is 100% opposite of a good sales plan designed to increase ASP and profit margin.

      Pros

      Great coworkers and solid managers neither of which last very long unfortunately

      Cons

      Very high turnover with marketing and sales reps. Most employees in the marketing and sales departments do not last more than a year. CEO is not all there and is very controlling over every aspect of the business. Not a good culture or work/life balance.

      Advice to Management

      Let your managers lead their own teams
