I have been working at CoreSite full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great company with a good benefit package. With full health and dental, plus PTO all start at the start of hire.

Cons

Horrible nanagament starting with the western regional manager of security. Has poor management and communciation skills. Gives too much favoritism, lacks judgement on good workers and needs to improve on employee relations skills.

Supervisor, likes to start problems, brings moral down, is too protected by the Corperate Director of CoreSite Security. He's no nothing, expect allot, and needs to understand his workers.

Let alone the rediculous favortism that goes on, at the 900 Alameda, where certain people get the weekends off, certain easy post, where no hard done, but they get recognized for doing excellent work, while they cover themselves, by making everyone else look bad.

Can't even take day off, they are always denied. What's the point of having benefit, if you can't even use it? That's the senior management for you.

Advice to Management

Fire the Western Regional Security Manager, just becuase he was a cop and sold insurance, doesn't qualify him to be a Manager, wih his poor skills of communication and taking care of employees, and lack of leadership. Find someone with great experience in Security in a corperate level, and knows how to operate and work with their employees, to find a common goal.

As for the supervisor not much worst thant the regional manager, but never hire your friends to work at your company or work for you. As you can see since that individual took that position, all he started was division, conflict within other employees and departments, and poor morale. In which it could lead to potential liababilty. And that all reflects on you the Corperate Security Director!

    I have been working at CoreSite full-time

    Pros

    Feels like family. Company is tight knit, managers are fair, and it is in a fast growing segment.

    Cons

    Benefits are dated (low 401k matching, zero maternity leave, etc). Company is very conservative in culture, strategy, etc.

    Advice to Management

    We seem to be coasting on previous entrepreneurship, vision, and risk-taking that built the company, but for whatever reason the company appears to be afraid to continue to take any risks moving forward.
