Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits are good, financially stable - backed by NTT Communications Company.

Cons

Poor Executive Management, no clear direction, Japanese-owned company with different business approach/management style from most US companies.

Advice to Management

Get your act together, clearly communicate the vision and direction for the company

    I worked at Verio full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is a steady paycheck and decent benefits for someone just starting out, IF you can be a full time employee. Overall, it's a clean place to work, with a decent starting salary if you don't want to be in retail tech or sales.

    Cons

    Nepotism, idiocy and failure are all qualifications for management. Frequently, the people who know the least, succeed the most.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees and stop trying to cut the company to the bone trying to compete with places like GoDaddy.

    I worked at Verio full-time

    Pros

    Verio is owned by the deep-pocketed NTT Communications group, so layoffs (when they happen) are generous in severance (3-6 months, depending on tenure). Most of the people are nice, every-day people.

    Cons

    There have been so many shakeups and restructuring, corporate decapitations and layoffs over the years that people are really in survival mode.

    Advice to Management

    Either find a core product that you can get behind (that the market will buy) or else sell your customer base to the highest bidder.
