    Pros

    very broad portfolio, fairly easy to find something to sell, as long as you can get in front of the right person. Unique value-added services that set the company apart from the competition. They constantly looking for the next big thing and try to be an early adaptor - creating a window where we are only ones with the offer.

    Cons

    very broad portfolio. as much as we want to tailor solution to fit customer requirements, we try to be flexible, we do have some limitations. Marketing & Product Management a bit behind.

    Advice to Management

    We need to expand our Prof. Services capabilities.

    "Amazing Environment"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NaviSite full-time

    Pros

    - excellent working environment
    -Good pay
    -Worked with some great people. Decent opportunity to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    Owned by Comcast
    Time Warner is becoming more involved in the day - to - day, where previously they were very hands off
    Time Warner is being consumed by Carter Cable, and our future is uncertain. Uncertainty creates risk.
    Very difficult to get / offer any discounts to win deals.

    Advice to Management

    The company mantra is the importance of providing superior service, but management seems more concerned with costs - there has been a pattern of over-working engineers, instead of adding staff. This has a detrimental impact on service, as well as employee morale. Talented (but overworked) engineers leave, replacement is slow (or doesn't happen), and the cycle continues.

    I worked at NaviSite full-time

    Pros

    NaviSite made an early push into the cloud along with some major investments in technology so this was a great place to gain early cloud experience.

    Cons

    Place was a bit dysfunctional with changes in management and the Time Warner cable acquisition. Sales typically over-promised and the operations team was not staffed to the level required resulting in many unhappy customers.

    Advice to Management

    Set a strategy and stick to it.
