Pros

Good pay- higher than normal/ up to 10% of salary in bonus based on performance ("up to" being the optimal words here) Good benefits- employee pays half/Internap half Open to outside the box ideas/fun projects to work on Nice new office with gym access/Starbucks/mall 21 paid days off Ability to work from home on occasion, depending on your manager Exciting and fast-paced industry with lots of potential

Cons

Constantly changing direction on goals Long hours/high stress - frequently up to all hours of the night finishing projects for the board only to scrap them later or have to re-do Competition among departments- very dog-eat-dog Buy-in is needed from everyone so it takes a long time to make decisions Everything seems to be done last minute with little thought going into planning - general mindset of do it halfway now and fix it later Can't turn off work - expected to be available at any time High turnover in general - about 50% and higher in sales - rare to meet anyone with tenure longer than two years Not a very social culture overall - don't expect team sports, lunches, happy hours or christmas parties Not a lot of interaction with senior management- very tiered/lots of middle management, little communication from the top Very cheap - will choose the most incompetant vendors in the name of saving a dollar/management questions every nickel and dime spent to the point of exhaustion Don't invest in employees - use them and lose them attitude/not generous with company bonuses Inflexible- vacation time is accrued, so if you don't have it when you need it you are SOL - not willing to work with you

Advice to Management

If you invest in your employees the dollars will follow - not the other way around. In order to truly change the culture it must come from a place of genuine appreciation for employees. It starts at the top. Celebrate the successes you do have. Find a way to make people feel valued and they won't mind the long hours and might even stick around longer. Employee happiness and retention rarely results from a high salary. You have people that are intelligent and know how to get the job done in management, they just need to work on motivating and inspiring their employees.

    Good pay, but poor company culture.

    Pros

    The pay is good in the short term.

    Cons

    Very high turn-over at all levels Corporate culture does not value employees Little to no life balance

    Advice to Management

    CEO is sharp, but needs to finish what he started. Some long tenured leadership is holding the company back and needs refreshing.


  2. It a good organization and has been a great place to work.

    Pros

    Solid and comprehensive products that fit early stage to mid-growth organizations. Smart people and great group of co-workers. Great Team. Great place to learn the industry.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. There is a three month look back on commissions that reduces your pay out. Trouble retaining sales professionals. Needs formal training for managers.

    Advice to Management

    Management training for new managers and managers that are new to Internap. I would recommend removing the three month look back on commissions.
