I have been working at SoftLayer full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDecent benefits, and compensation package.
Holiday Pay
Shift Differential Pay
Blog Bonus Pay
Paid Time Off
Relaxed Environment
Open door policy to any manager and or executive. (They listen and respond to valid concerns)
Quick 100% vesting on employer matched 401k contributions

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
