I have been working at Savvis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

young fast environment, competitive salary, good potential to move up

Cons

work/life balance isn't right. The salary was a little on the low side but I did start off in a junior position

Advice to Management

Be more direct with clients. they seem oversold / sold but don't understand fully what they are getting and that translates to problems with installations and tech management.

    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.

    Pros

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

    Pay is not up to par with other engineers, hours are long, quality of life is suffering,

    Advice to Management

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