    Pros

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

    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.

    I worked at IO (More than a year)

    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

    Pros

    Don't see many pros excpet the other employees were good... somhow loyal. Kudos to them.

    Cons

    Lack of direction of the management team. Top execs will sit there and lie directly to you. They sign contracts with vendors and then back out when they don't get their way. Never worked with a more unethical group of management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Speak the truth. You are only ruining your own reputations.

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

    Pros

    Great ideas and lots of talented people working there. Free lunches, snacks, and drinks.

    Cons

    Starting out, things seemed great. Projected growth was looking good and lots of new opportunities. But then the smoke started to clear and what seemed turned out to be a farce. The biggest issue was that there were several people in leadership positions who did not possess the proper skill-sets to be effective leaders.The organization was a small-to-medium sized business that had been around for several years, yet still acted like a start-up. The teams were constantly running from one "fire" to the next, which I think was due to lack of solid process. Work/Life balance was no existent, with some people working during their time off... so much for "unlimited vacation", Overall, i'd say the culture has a terminal cancer which is eating away at the moral of the employees and will not be sustainable long term.

    Pros

    Excellent Culture
    Competitive Compensation Packages
    Free Lunch
    Industry leading benefits, including 100% employer-paid health benefits options
    Flexible work hours
    Aggressive PTO accrual program that includes 3 weeks off to start, 4 weeks at your 2-year anniversary, and 5 weeks at your 4-year anniversary

    Cons

    There really isn't anything bad I can say about working here. I have been at several companies throughout the valley over the last 10 years or so, and truly believe this to be the best company I have ever had the opportunity to be a part of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, Continue to promote, and hire from within.
