Pros

Industry leader in the hosting,web and cloud.

Cons

Severe overwork of sr. solution engineers. No balance between work and family life.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the technical people that work at Savvis. They need to be heard if there's an issue. Management at Savvis was poor and lacked communications and competency in many aspects.

    "SAVVIS is not a place for a career. They really never cared about most of the people."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting work for the most part.

    Cons

    The management sucks - just about all management needed a good course in leadership, they spend more time as jockeys for their own gains and less time enhancing the business or leading people.

    Advice to Management

    Quit in mass. They never really spoke to many of the mid level people on what changes needed to take place. Seemed like it is all about selling the company and cashing in. Ofcourse they intend to stay on in a merger because that is the party line.

    Pros

    Internet Hosting company puts you to work servicing some of the Internet's biggest names. The company's data centers are pretty technologically advanced, and working in them does have some degree of prestige. The health benefits are fair, and there is an ESPP.

    Cons

    The company is based out of Saint Louis, and has offices around the globe. Many sattelite offices appear overlooked, with favor instead placed on Saint Louis employees and offices. Is a career path in a location outside the "favored area" (STL) worth it? Not really.

    Advice to Management

    Support Jim. He has a vision, and is probably the only person, at this point, who can right the ship. Too much time has been devoted to reorgs, and not enough time has been given to fix things that have been disfunctional for years.
