    I have been working at Cogeco Peer 1 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A strong workforce makes for a great company, happy customers, and happy shareholders. I am relatively new to Peer 1 and I have to say it is everything I had hoped it would be and more. The people are easy to work with and everyone has fun! Its hard not to have a pride in a company where the people truly come first.

    Cons

    Growth can be painful for any company. There is still a lot of work to do on back end processes

    Advice to Management

    Keep this culture!

    Pros

    PEER 1 really commits a great deal of resources toward engaging the employee base, and ensuring that we are all on the same page in terms of being "the most human web hosting company." It's an exceptionally smart company, and there is a strong sense of collaboration.

    Cons

    A highly distributed work force makes it a challenge to stay in sync with team members.

    Advice to Management

    There really should be more women in management.

    I have been working at Cogeco Peer 1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's clear that the senior management and executives at Peer 1 are committed to growing the company without loosing focus on what makes it such a special place to work. The focus on people is more than just a slogan its a way of life at Peer 1

    Cons

    Typical growing pains for a company in its adolescence. Too few staff and too many generalists. A reliance on "heroes" who go above and beyond rather than building sustainable, scalable teams who can meet challenges for the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in growing the company, continue to bring in fresh talent from outside the company to keep things vital and growing and never lose sight of being the most human company on the web.

    Pros

    Peer 1 Hosting actually cares about each employee. You are not just a number here. Instead, we are all encouraged to bring our authentic self to work each day.

    Cons

    Because decisions are made by collaborating with one another, sometimes it takes a while for things to be decided. The results are better - but it takes longer to get there.

    Pros

    With a very horizontal organization structure, it is incredibly easy to touch base with anyone in the company when needed. The casual atmosphere is very comfortable, yet the staff oozes professional excellence. Everyone is an expert in their field.

    Cons

    If being expected to do one's job well in a comfortable, enriching and invigorating environment is a con, well then, so be it.

    Pros

    If you enjoy social interaction in a fun a creative work space this is your place. More than it being a growing company with tons of potiential and opportunity it is a place where people enjoy spending time together outside of work. Tons of social activities make this good company a GREAT place to work.

    Things I enjoy? the fun approachable people that work here.

    Cons

    We are growing so change in inevitable. If you like a place that is standing still and on "maintain" phase this is not the ideal landing spot.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not let the culture change as so many growing companies eventually do..
