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

    Pros

    Want a family, want good benefits, great holiday schedule, great pay there is more but I don't want to ruin it for. Get in.

    Cons

    None at all I need fill space so I'll just write until I have enough words here. I can't say enough

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and you'll have great employees.

    Pros

    Nice people, relaxed atmosphere. Industry itself is booming and the company stands to benefit from the rising tide.

    Great work/life balance. Good compensation.

    Cons

    It is growing fast and culture is changing. Lot of churn in teams, HR keeps nothing a secret, so be careful with what you take to them.

    Compensation and leave is likely to change.

    Advice to Management

    Forge more cohesion between teams


  3. "Learn a lot but tons of Drama from HR and cliques"

    I worked at DuPont Fabros (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a small company with a big footprint. You will learn a ton quickly. You will have experience that most people would have to wait to get.

    Cons

    It's a small company employee count wise. I would say the drama is equivalent to 10th grade is HS. You constantly have to worry about who you will offend. The HR leaders do very little to alleviate this. I would argue they and some other early higher employees of the company do a lot of damage to team moral by forming tight knit cliques. You don't really realize the extent of it till you have left.

    Advice to Management

    I would make sure you work to have people check their egos as the door. People who just start should be comfortable expressing their ideas instead of fear of getting someone angry for stepping on their toes.
