    I worked at Codero full-time

    Pros

    Front line employees are some of the best and brightest. They work very hard and are very dedicated to their jobs. The company tries hard to recognize the outstanding work and accomplishments of the staff. Benefits are pretty good, salaries could use a little work.

    Cons

    The workload on the employees can be overwhelming at times. Even though management knows this, they are reluctant to hire enough people to get the job done. Consequently, some of the employees are getting burned-out. This company is very fast-paced, to the point that some people have left within a month or two of being hired. Turnover has been very high.....do your homework before applying for a job with this...

    Advice to Management

    Suggest an anger management course for the CEO. His rants and tirades are unprofessional and childish. Publicly demeaning employees is also a big no-no. Wasn't that covered in the company handbook? Listen to the front line staff. Be more pro-active instead of re-active. FYI.....a 10 year old would be able to tell which reviews on this site were "plants" and which weren't. If the company has nothing to hide,...

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

    Pros

    This is the first company I have worked in that has really given me an opportunity to grow and learn. Thats not necessarily because of some structured, pre-ordained method they have... its because they still operate as a small company. That means there is opportunity to shine (all the way up to getting noticed by the CEO) in pretty much anything you do. Pay is fair. The work is challenging. And if you believe in having...

    Cons

    Working at Codero is like jumping into deep pool with both feet... and not knowing how far down the water is, or how deep the pool will be. You will have to jump into areas that you may not be 100% comfortable with. And for that, its not for the faint of heart. But honestly for someone wired to grow their knowledge of technology, all of that is just opportunity. The business is growing which means that more and more...

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company. Keep hiring great people. Continue making sure that the little guys get opportunities to break out into new areas.

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

    Pros

    -Very customer focused-You get to work with customers, and solve their problems and actually help them out. Makes the day go by fast, and very rewarding. -Good pay, and good benefits. Some of the best in the industry. -Good management team that knows what they are doing, and where they are taking the company

    Cons

    -A lot is expected of customer support technicians, and data center techs but that is not necessarily bad. We are expected to not only solve technical problems, but also sell, and resolve account issues, billing, etc. I have learned a vast number of skills at Codero. But sometimes, the sheer load can be too much especially in the absence of a good training program.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend a better training program. But overall, please keep doing what you are doing. You have grown the company, you are taking care of your employees, you are hiring the right folks. thank you for the opportunity! Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    I like working here. The customer focus is great and refreshing. The pace is a little hectic, but hey it is also a lot of fun. You get to do a lot of things, and people are mostly nice from the employees to the management. Codero is a company that is growing, fun to to work for, and is in the middle of good changes that mostly are of the betterment of the company. it is definitely a start up environment. I understand...

    Cons

    The company is in 3 locations, and some people work in other shifts. So you may work with someone forever, and not see them.

    Advice to Management

    Good job, and keep up what you are doing and help grow Codero to be what we all want it to be. The culture needs some work, but I know you are aware. Communication from you has improved in the time I have been here. You tell it like it is, which is good.

    I worked at Codero

    Pros

    It can be a good place to get into a tech career. Their level of standards and high turnover make it easier to get in the door compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Don't expect to see any remarkable business or management practices displayed here. The company has failed to thrive over the years because of mediocre leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Looking through LinkedIn, it is evident that Codero has had some great talent slip away because of its culture and practices. Through the high turnover and layoffs leadership team as remained in place. They would benefit from an honest assessment of their leadership paradigm and practices.

    I worked at Codero

    Pros

    If you want to get started in the hosting industry for some reason, Codero is one of only a few local employers that are trying to do it at scale. There are some exciting possibilities for learning technologies and, as long as you keep other opportunities in your back pocket and don't assume this is a long-term job, there are some avenues for increasing your skills due to the high-tech nature of the hosting industry....

    Cons

    Very intensive political culture. You are encouraged to blame system failures on others and this often rolls downhill. Company is performing poorly overall with massive layoffs in the last year or so. Rather than addressing the sources of this poor performance at the middle management level, Codero has instead chosen to continually cycle through low-level employees. HR is tremendously inconsistent. Policies and procedures...

    Advice to Management

    Recently the CEO was replaced in a last-ditch effort to salvage the company. That's a good start and people seem to generally approve, but too many of the wrong people are still in the wrong places, so this ship may be too far along in its course to really turn around now.

    Great people, friendly and very positive atmosphere. Exciting place to work, fast pace and customer focused Adding lots of super smart people lately Management is very involved with the business and employees

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in the areas we are understaffed or underpaid. Faster hiring Keep hiring good people. The people you have brought in lately are tops Also take care of the people we have that have been here for a while

    I worked at Codero full-time

    Pros

    Someone mentioned: if you are desperate. Accurate accurate accurate. Adverse accounts of this company in the reviews are accurate.

    Cons

    Do you enjoy hateful behavior? Slave-driving? Zero infrastructure? Mass perpetual confusion?

    Advice to Management

    If you have a true skill-set and self-respect my advice to management is to work elsewhere and allow the current higher-ups to further their cause in bulldozing this company to the ground

    I have been working at Codero full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's better than being unemployed, but not by much.

    Cons

    Below industry average pay. Manipulative/poor management. Zero career stability or potential for advancement. I cannot recommend enough that potential employees consider looking elsewhere first.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the products you have instead of launching half-assed new ones. Excel at something instead of being poor to mediocre at everything.

    I worked at Codero full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's pretty easy to get in the door at Codero. Can you type, dress yourself, and turn on a computer? Hired! This could be good for some. Some hope of turnaround after a new CEO. There are some smart people still keeping things going. It can be inspiring to see some of them working so hard when everyone else has lost hope.

    Cons

    After years of empty promises of change, things seem to still be slowly proceeding downward and it's looking doubtful for all the promised changes to come to fruition. Some positions have been filled a couple of times, only to have the employee laid off when the company fails to hit yet another revenue target. Everyone has a resume updated and is ready to go. A few people that needed to go are finally out but one...
