    I have been working at SevOne full-time

    Pros

    SevOne is a company on the move. With new technology and great customers, SevOne is positioned to take advantage of the huge changes in the technology infrastructure market. There is no doubt, our customers are once again turning to us for leadership in this rapidly evolving space.

    The best part about the company, however, is the team. The men and women who work at SevOne have developed a culture of working hard, and playing, as a team.

    And, It is great to see we are hiring once again!

    Cons

    Change is hard. There are a few individuals pining for the way the company was in 2012. It was fun, but that was the past.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to lead the industry. We have the technology roadmap for success, let's stick to it. Reward teamwork, good attitudes, and innovation. Make our customers successful and the rest will sort itself out!

    I worked at SevOne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great working with world class customers and peers, hired by some of the best people in the world. I now know them as friends and that experience is available to everyone at Sevone.

    Cons

    Sevone will be challenged by the shift in buying patterns in the top tier customers which are Service Provider and Enterprise accounts, the impact of the
     transformation is not unique to Sevone.

    Advice to Management

    Change can be hard and execution can be even harder, listen to customers and deliver,...but they know this.

    I worked at SevOne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice office, lax environment. Fun opportunities.

    Cons

    5 years too late on technology update, no trust in the engineers to make changes, below market pay rates. Truly a useless CEO. CTOs oursource to companies that they have a stake in (has happened at least twice)

    Advice to Management

    Hire CEO that can do something besides watch the money pile diminish. stop hiring CTOs and senior managers that don't understand their markets or have huge conflicts of interest.

    I worked at SevOne full-time

    Pros

    Great people that care about the customers and company success
    Good product
    Excellent support team
    Good services group
    Awesome customer list

    Cons

    Reducing cost is the main focus
    Slow to invest, slow to get results
    Try to do too much with too little. Expectations too high, investment too low
    Heavy workload. Long hours. High burnout rate
    Sales tired of fighting accounting for commissions earned
    Attitude not to pay comes from the top, make you fight for it to wear you down
    Accounting eliminated more items from commissions , maint, h/w
    Didn't want to pay commissions for services, but it's the only way to sell anything
    Was nothing to sell, customer wanted to buy more but truck is empty
    Teams are motivationally bankrupt
    Couldn't handle the truth. Don't want to hear it. It won't go away by ignoring it
    People hoping to escape before getting shot at the border

    Advice to Management

    Don't let accounting run sales anymore, more people will try to escape
    Stop SVP turnover
    Hire an experienced person (people if you crack open the wallet) for solutions
    Hire more developers
    Reduce burnout. People need resources to do the job. Customers see it
    If you care, people are at their breaking point and customer too
    You are strangling the company with frugality
    Treat people like assets, not like an expense you delete to increase profit
    "Treat your employees exactly the way you want them to treat your best customers"

    Listen to your customer facing technical employees for direction in development. They know what the customers want.
