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

    Pros

    Very aggressive company with huge growth with many opportunities around the world.

    Cons

    There is nothing technical to be learned as a operations technician as this is why they are hiring people with no knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Need to know the job field to understand the work and need to know leadership traits with out hiding behind a title. Need to educate them selves instead of always asking for technicians to do everything because they have no clue.
