    I have been working at IO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Only pros are if you're salaried. Insurance starts day 1

    Don't care about employee morale. Owner has to get loans from other countries because of his debt. Dumb business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If people quit because they say a mgr is bad, maybe they're bad.

    Pros

    The location and the people that you've worked with have been great.

    Cons

    being asked to wear multiple hats but only getting one salary below the current market standard. too much uncertainty for the future of the company. Upper Management is ghost

    Advice to Management

    Turn the clock back and get back to what they used to be. Need to look out for the employees and not just their own pockets

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

    Pros

    Good pay & good benefits. Had free snacks in the beginning but that has been in sort supply. Need to take coffee from sales to stay awake at night.

    Cons

    Current management is clueless on how to run a data center. It's a smoke and mirror game.
    Co workers come from temp agencies with absolutely no qualifications. They are just body to file a spot. Their data center is to make Baselayers numbers look good. This company is hanging on by a thread. So be careful. Once employees see thru the smoke they are gone. Constant turnover and training of new temps. Never have I seen such turnover in a critical environment. Also management will lie right to your face even when you know the truth. I guess they think if they say it enough it is real. When the owners car is keyed in the parking lot it says it all. Last but not least you don't work for IO. Your W2 will come from a company called Inperity.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business before your in bankruptcy.

    Pros

    Location is good. Folks at lower levels are nice.

    Cons

    Directors and above have only there best interests in mind. Will stab you in the back if it covers there backsides! Accounting/Finance group the worse!

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate how VPs and Directors treat the staff. You have a couple of psycho's working in Accounting/Finance!

    I worked at IO full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Schedules, Had a great lunch system, staff was very friendly and seemed like family. C level management are highly intelligent.

    Cons

    Executive leadership was brutal. Didn't particularly care about anyone. Would hire people based on where they were from not what they could do.. Ended up being a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Who you hire is more important than where they came from. Just because they came from another big company does not mean they are effective at an environment like IO
