    An Opportunity to Make Change

    Pros

    ServInt is looking for people who are interested in trying new things and helping to reinvent the company. If you thrive on the challenge of being a part of change, it is a great place to expand your skills and experience. And, if you are energized by exploring new technology or working to identify technology solutions for clients, you will fit right in.

    Cons

    The dynamic environment might prove challenging if you are looking for a well-defined, static position. However, if you can handle an evolving environment, you will find that you have the opportunity to influence the future of a changing company.

    Old ServInt is dead, new ServInt is a ship on the bottom of the ocean

    Pros

    Great experience for new administrators! Very easy to get hired and work load was easy - back in 2014. Co-Workers make the MST. The MST is always popping off with hijinks and good times.

    Cons

    The rest of the company can be a bit of a stick in the mud compared to the MST. The new COO has stopped the current model of VPS and switching to professional services however he has used fear tactics and shotgun terminations to remove older techs and even those he has hired for the changes. He is the sole reason the MST has lost all its morale and is a tyrant in the office.

    Pros

    The training program is top notch. This is a great company to get your foot into the door of IT. You will learn a lot here if you are just beginning your career.

    Cons

    Pay is not commensurate with experience or skill. Not much opportunity for advancement. They have been going through layoffs and have let go of many good people.

    Relaxed environment, good for learning

    Pros

    Little to no stress, fun work environment, and great for learning. Managers aren't jerks. Executives are easy to talk to and receptive to problems if you bring them up. Benefits are alright. Lots of opportunity to create replacements for internal systems (to fix bottlenecks).

    Cons

    Job is no longer challenging after a few years (tedious, repetitive).

    Great place to work, not for everyone.

    Pros

    The team at ServInt is top-notch. Co-workers regularly help one another both inside and outside of work. This is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, and the opportunities for advancement are minimal. The company is currently in transition and things could feel unstable.

    It's Over

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I do not believe they will be hiring anyone else at his time.

    Cons

    The owner finally saw the writing on the wall. The COO that destroyed the company has been terminated. Unfortunately, in the process, the company has outsourced sales and support. The product strategy is dead and there is no hope for turn-around.

    The Old ServInt Is Gone

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Mostly good people, decent benefits, challenging work

    Cons

    The old ServInt that everyone talks about is dead & gone. At one point, it seems that ServInt had a start-up feel to it, with a relaxed environment, mediocre wages, and a tight-knit and core group of people. The company is transitioning into a much more corporate environment, and most of the magic is gone. Not sure why this is happening but maybe they are merging, selling, or something else.

    What a debacle.

    Aug 16, 2016 - MST - Escalated in Reston, VA

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity, at least initially.

    Cons

    Management, low salary, no growth opportunity. In the last two years, the company has lost the vast majority of the support and management team, due to the radical changes implemented by a new COO, who has made a complete mess of the company and chased away some really good people. The customer support focus and structure has been upended - which has in-turn ruined ServInts reputation in the hosting community. The company is now only interested in the bottom-line. If you are a current employee, or someone interested in applying to work for this company, my advice would be to run as fast as you can in another direction.

    Greatness turned into pain and madness

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. If you just graduated from the DC area and you’re having trouble landing your 1st job this isn’t such a bad deal. Learn some linux administration and get your feet wet dealing with tech support. Not a bad resume builder. The pay is nothing to write home about but it’s a real job with full benefits. The work life balance is ok too.

    Cons

    It’s so hard to sum this up in less than a dozen paragraphs but I’ll try. 1ST > Don’t ever expect a decent raise or recognition for hard work. This company doesn’t understand the concept. Tough to make a career here. Industry wise the pay becomes a joke pretty fast. 2ND > Communication is terrible and can make your job very frustrating. I will give the company 1 pt of credit for seeming to realize this. Problem is it seems the claim of trying to improve communication is being used as an excuse for new management to just do whatever they feel like. 3RD and worst of all > servint is being turned upside down and all around. No point in being coy or beating around the bush here. Anybody paying a little attention on the job the last yr can put the pieces together. The CEO built a successful company but then handed day to day management off to others years ago. He got so caught up living the good life that he couldn’t even see how lazy and arrogant many in upper management had become. Not all but many. 2015 rolls around and servint finally realizes theyre in a serious financial pickle. They hire a new COO supposed to be an expert in the field and turn everything around. Sounds like a bright idea but the new COO starts taking a shotgun approach to every dept. Many great and awful employees are fired side by side leaving a trail of fear. Many of his decisions seem out of touch with reality of the industry he's supposed to be an expert in. New pricing and policy is put out with nothing much to support how it will be fair or good for servint clients. Some employee advice is listended to but much of it ignored. Whats ignored often comes back to bite us and we have to deal with furious clients. Not exactly the company savior that makes clients or employees feel warm and fuzzy.

    Pros

    Great company environment. Sales team was a lot of fun.

    Cons

    At the time the company didn't have the infrastructure they lead us to believe. They were definitely growing but just were not able to keep up with how much we were selling.
