    I worked at Cwie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Food provided was great. Flexible schedule was wonderful as well. Very motivated to keep PCI compliance. Great place for someone looking for datacenter experience or an entry-level position.

    Cons

    Little to no growth opportunities, company doesn't help pay for continuing education, high turnover (cycles through about half the people their every 6 months), company seems to be not continuing to keep people in either there Malta or us locations and hiring more in Serbia area.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open, and invest in the us.

    I worked at Cwie (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was happy enough to stay 10+ years, and would have stayed longer if they hadn't started moving jobs to Serbia.

    Cons

    Company has begun offshoring, so be wary if you're looking for long-term employment.

    Advice to Management

    I hate minimum word counts.

    Pros

    There is a lot to say about PhoenixNAP This place has good people, and you get access to top level gear. This is because the place is a Internet Backbone, as well as a ISP carrier hotel. I even got to help with prototype equipment that no one else in the world got to play with. You also get to see alot of different network and technology troubleshooting situations.

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck and keep expanding!

    I worked at Cwie full-time

    Pros

    Free food if you're on shift.
    Everyone is very helpful to give you more information.

    Cons

    You will be forgotten on third-shift. You must out perform everyone on the team to standout.

    Advice to Management

    Do more reviews for more than just job performance. Overall morale issues go a long way.

    I worked at Cwie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HR is awesome they care about the employees come up with new things to add to make the employees happy. Always learning new things company is growing and top leadership has good foresight to steer the company to an amazing future. Pay is at or above market value for the positions. Lots of chances to move up if you apply yourself. Free lunch Monday - Friday can't beat that.

    Cons

    Managers hold your career in their hands, some like to micromanage their departments which can make it hard to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee more, train your managers and directors, have corporate policies in place, that can't be left open for a director to decide if it should be enforced or not.

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

    Pros

    Very Laid back environment, opportunity to learn, Lunch provided in house

    Cons

    Upper management hires people to make process and cultural changes.. but does accept the changes they are trying to incorporate. One person (Owner) making most of the biggest company decisions leads to cheap solutions, Staggered Pay Rates and unhappy employees. Benefits include no 401k matching, no pension, no retirement, No bonuses and decent medical.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they deserve and people will not leave as often.
