    I worked at HOSTING full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Experience that will teach you a lot, get a good basic education in many things. At the time I was there, your certification fees would be covered if you passed. That is a huge deal, and the support from peers is outstanding in passing your tests.

    Cons

    There is training at the job to be had, but sometimes it is sink or swim in terms of learning on the job. The job is like any profession, prepare and practice makes you good at what you do. But at this place, be educated and also be a fast learner, or you could fall behind and find yourself not moving forward. Not the company's fault, would be your own really. But in general, they wont share much feedback with you about that, they dont have time. They are way too busy to point this out. In other words, make sure you are staying current on what you know, or this job might not pan out to be a career. Be a self-starter.

    Pros

    Decent pay, not very stressful work most of the time.

    Cons

    Your managers dont care about you. They will look you in the eyes and tell you you're doing a good job, then the next day you try to come to work and your badge doesnt work.

    "Great frontline staff and middling middle management. A good start, but not a career."

    I worked at HOSTING

    Pros

    Hands down has some great staff doing the hard work. It’s a great place where you’ll meet friends you’ll have for life. Staff on the ground and middle management level will go to bat for their customers and put in extra time and mileage to get things done. Robust solutions that bring value to companies.

    Cons

    The management at the top (though not always middle management) views everyone in the company as imminently disposable. If it looks good on the quarterly financial report they’ll enact reductions in force, especially after acquiring new companies. Every year, benefits get stingier and with fewer options. No leadership at the top with a consistent vision apart from acquiring new logos to show growth and prestige. Pervasive sell or die culture from the very top.

    Great people and work environment. You learn a ton in technology.

    Leadership training is a bit weak. Wouldn't recommend getting foot in door to develop. Not a lot of growth options on the east coast currently.
