I have been working at Savvis full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Not another company like them in the Midwest. They have huge clients. They offer the best technology to customers. Global support teams.

Cons

Big clients get what they want to the detriment of uniformity. Overworked and under appreciated at times.

Advice to Management

Push hard to create simple and uniform products. Start naming products in simple and uniform terms.

    Pros

    Objectively speaking, the company has a nice portfolio of managed services that are on par or better than the competition. The culture is good - sales org is a lot of fun and good work atmosphere. As are the service teams.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional in the delivery and ops side of the house.

    Advice to Management

    Get real about financials. Company needs to invest into R&D to mature it's product set and get to market more quickly. Also needs to focus on profitability - or at least have a plan for it.

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

    Pros

    Excellent management. Ethical corporation. Lots of long-term employees who know a lot about the company and where it needs to go, mixed with a new and enthusiastic bunch of Agile teams.

    Cons

    Parent company (CenturyLink) doesn't share the Savvis vision. In the long run, the Savvis dedication to excellence may be diluted by CenturyLink's dedication to mediocrity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fix what isn't broken!
