Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good technical people. Team spirit at lower levels.

Cons

Its not my problem attitude among management.
Strange corporate structure.
Inability to say no to a major sale, even if there is no profit in it.

Advice to Management

I would advise glassdoor to recognize that Philip J. Koen is no the CEO of Savvis and hasn't been since January.

    Pros

    Savvis has solid management, with attention to finance, focus on customers, and operational stability. Management in the past wasn't always this solid; the new management deserves credit. In terms of products, Savvis provides network, hosting, and cloud services. If you want to work with technology involving networks, servers, storage, and security then Savvis offers plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    The flip-side of maturity in a company like Savvis, is that the work isn't always exciting and sometimes management is risk averse. Process such as "change management" can feel like a burden. Products are interesting, but not bleeding edge.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to take more risk; innovation involves failure, but is necessary to lead the market. Savvis must be more agile to compete with emerging cloud competitors, or it will lose business.
