Cons
  • Out of the leading data center REITS, CoreSite is the only one that does not have an international presence (in 5 reviews)

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

    Pros

    The people working for the company are great - knowledgeable, talented, smart and always eager to help. Just like in any company everything varies department to department, and some departments have it better than others. If you have a good senior leader you are golden. This company was build on good people. Some company events, summer picnics, christmas party

    Cons

    People are overworked...a lot... Working on the weekends and at night is a usual thing. Pay is not great for the hours worked. Not a lot of flexibility there.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people. Hire help, dont work your employees to a point of looking for greener pastures. Take a step forward and allow employees some flexibility (i.e. working from home).

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Skeletal crew with security, facilities, operations. Salaries are low unless you are an executive. A lot of great people left the company, so I followed suite and jumped ship.

    Advice to Management

    raise your salary to have better retention of employees.

  3. "Great go-getter company."

    I worked at CoreSite full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved working there while it was CRG West. Had great Managers including the SVP of Technology and Director of Operations. Great People on the Site level.

    Cons

    Working for a Sub company of Carlyle Realty Group can sometimes means that you are always left guessing on the next move of the company.

    Advice to Management

    keep you employees more informed of huge changes that can cause massive layoffs.
