    Very nice management, very clean environment, very friendly co-workers. They seem to have a very relaxed work environment, not too stressful, very quiet office. Not too loud or disruptive. So far so good.

    Pros

    Basic product is good.

    Cons

    Terrible office environment. People are leaving in droves. No pay raises.

    Disengaged upper management. They don't listen to the concerns of the employees or they don't care.

    I worked at Star2Star Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met my better half there. Their product and services are easy to sell. They are located near beautiful Sarasota.

    Cons

    Salary, benefits, work load, politics, you name it. They are constantly downsizing and restructuring. They fail to recognize and keep top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better.

    I worked at Star2Star Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A bit of flexibility

    Cons

    C-level employees are insane at best, changing their minds on a whim which then causes everyone else's emergencies. The culture here is unprofessional at best and if I were you - I would 100% stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Just try actually creating a workflow instead of following your every whim.

    Pros

    Company business model is great. Delivery of services is not solely hosted or on premise, but a healthy hybrid of both.
    Team is comprised of great people. Leads and managers have been with the company for several years. Loads of acquired knowledge. Great culture and willingness to help each other

    Cons

    Nothing yet. Of course health insurance is a hot button, as costs have skyrocketed over the last couple of years. Maybe work to bring offerings back to what they used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with what you are doing.
