I have been working at Savvis full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Freedom on schedule, ability to make decisions, team I work with.

Advice to Management

The slogan, "Do more with less" is getting old. May want to revisit this idea.

    I have been working at Savvis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Savvis is full of good people that believe in the product. Overall a good portfolio and lots of passion.

    Cons

    Leadership fails to invest in staffing so delivery teams are incredibly over worked and application development teams are under qualified and under inexperienced leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in internal teams to bring in talent. Remove legacy leaders that don't bring value to the organization rather than limping along out of some sort of loyalty at the expense of company performance.
