    I worked at Savvis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - It is possible to find some talented engineers, if you look long enough.
    - You'll get to observe poor management first hand, and know how to quickly identify it in the future.
    - You'll get to experience a company run by the "good 'ol boys", so you'll be able to identify and avoid a Good-'ol-boys company in the future.
    - After six months, you'll begin having lots of good things to say about that last position that you left.
    - If you hire in as Management at Savvis, your lying skills will be developed to the point of expertise.

    Cons

    The Operations Center is an absolutely abysmal place to work.

    Personal Opinion: If you are a Security Engineer, You will hurt your career by listing a position in the Savvis "SOC" on your resume. It's that bad.

    Managers, Directors and VP's are among the worst I've ever seen, anywhere.
    Far too much Departmental in-fighting, Lying for success and Corporate "Spin".

    Senior Management knows how dysfunctional Operations at the mid-level and the tech front lines and has done nothing to correct it.

    Advice to Management

    - Nuke the Operations Center Management Team from Manager level up. Start over with Operations and Security management that has industry experience outside of Savvis.

    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.
