Great Company
Market Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXNovember 21, 2017
Digital Realty is a great place to learn about the data center industry. There is no other company where you can become involved in large scale, colo, and cloud deals all in one day. It really is the foundation for enterprise technology.

great place to work
Datacenter Field Ops Inspector (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 19, 2017
while this is a great place to work, it is boring and no place where you can grow. Very hard to move up in ranks. management can be more encouraging and supportive.

You have to know someone
Engineer II (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXOctober 4, 2017
Congrats on your new job at Digital Realty. Be sure to get to know management very well because you will not move up unless you know someone. Moving up or changing shifts requires you to go through the entire hiring process all over again.

Corporate work environment
Director, Accounting (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 2, 2017
Good place to work with great location and people and an open door management policy. The culture requires something to be desired as a lot of long time employees' salaries remain compressed and unaddressed. Management is a little bit heavy from the top with inadequate "ground" staff. Too many changes, too quickly and too many people leaving or transitioning out did not allow for adequate 'breathing' room and for the staff to adapt. Otherwise stable and consistent company.

Buyer Beware

Too many managers
Team Lead / Architect (Current Employee) –  Piscataway, NJMay 11, 2016
Too many managers that can't decide between themselves what strategy to take. The company has stuck in the '90s and trying to to get herself to '00s forgetting that it's 2016 now.
