    Pros

    Flexible and easy environment. Good people.

    Cons

    Lack of solid road map made it difficult to know what was required or needed from team members. Other than that it was pleasant enough.

    Pros

    Great place to work. I worked for them in 2002, but was not given that option for this review.

    Cons

    No real cons. I did quit because of one bad supervisor, but the others were good.

    I worked at Verio full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was fun while it lasted. Some good technology. Some good people. Surrounding area makes for pleasant afternoon strolls. Not uncommon to find employees napping in their cars during the day.

    Cons

    The place is closing up. People need to find other jobs within the company or they'll soon be out of a job. Hopefully everyone has been keeping up their skills, since Verio long since stopped being a technology leader.

    Advice to Management

    Polish your resumes, spruce up your LinkedIn account, sign up for technology hiring mailing lists. If you're the last one turning off the lights, listen for the moans of old Verio ghosts when the ventilation system kicks in.

    Listen to your employees and customers, they have some good advice and insights.

    I worked at Verio full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people and pay is ok. Not a sweat shop and have some cool events.

    Cons

    It used to be a cutting edge hosting and development shop. Years of bad executives run through there has left it to die on the vine. What was left was an operations manager as CEO and a bunch of Japanese guys in upper management that never leave their office or communicate with anyone. NTT could not find anything better to do with those guys in Japan. New leadership just worried about keeping the servers plugged in and no innovation or creativity. SA's becoming managers of teams that do nothing and block development from doing anything that people would want to buy. Such a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now, NTT just giving up. Time to go find another place.

    I worked at Verio full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Met a lot of good people there. I did learn a lot as well. Workers at your level were there to help.

    Cons

    VP's change like every 3 years. Each has their own vision of what they want to do with the company. Often complete 180 from the previous. Poor business decisions created a toxic work environment. Support was off shored and that was the end of an era.


  7. "Great place to work"

    I worked at Verio full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    fun people, innovative environment, cutting edge technology and being able to help other companies promote their business via the internet. The company used to be the 800 pound gorilla.

    Cons

    Too may changes in leadership over the years and changes in direction took a great company from amazing to behind the times and finally no longer relevant.

    Advice to Management

    They should stick with a plan and then see it through. Their reseller model was so flawed and upper management ignored advice from the front line that could have really helped the business. The business failed because of senior management.

    Pros

    People are great to work with. They support each other and make it fun.

    Cons

    Some of the business decisions of the main company have derailed the morale of the people who really would like to see the business succeed.

    Advice to Management

    When making overall Business Decisions that impact everyone, try to err on the side of realism and take a risk and lead the business in a new direction.
