Industry leader, global
Director Cloud & IT Services (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CASeptember 8, 2017
In the product and marketing side you are very much at the demand of sales - the industry itself is cut throat with sales turning over pretty quickly. Equinix is the industry leader so its more stable - however don't expect to coast. It is a great company, demanding but fun - make sure to maintain face-time with core team members and functional colleagues around the globe
Pros
Growing industry - fun, busy, great benefits
Cons
Commodity products and services - differentiation limited

Tough enviroment
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CAJuly 27, 2017
This is a tough place to work. Constant work with little support. If you find your self in a thankless job, you can be stuck there for a while. Many people stay becuase the stock is performing but it is a slave gallery.
Pros
Stock
Cons
Your just a number

Consistent but that's about it.
Talent Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  Redwood City, CAJune 20, 2017
No career growth, but the work flow is consistent which is good. Don't expect a pay raise unless you are best friends with the boss. If you work in HQ, I am sorry.
Pros
Consistent
Cons
You will be set up to fail as your probation.

Retention Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 2, 2017
It was a good company but the managers hired from HP have made an absolute mess of the company within the sales organization. It was a wonderful place to work at one time but those days are long gone.

A terrible company to work for!

I was overworked. I learned how not to run a company. Management was inefficient. Workplace culture was asocial. Got carpal tunnel syndrome from working there due to my workload.

Great place and corporate trajectory if you get in with the right folks
Training Manager (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMarch 6, 2017
The corporate position is very strong and it has been a solid growth company for several years. As I've seen with other growth companies the leadership needs to evolve with the size. This was not happening well in my department which left much to be desired but in other departments you can grow with the company instead of being marginalized.

The old boy network is entrenched and getting in with them can be a challenge if you're not historically from their roots. Strong ex-military management cultrure.
Pros
Generous food & snacks
Cons
Culturally challenged leadership in some areas

People are generally very nice
Commercial Contracts Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 2, 2017
Other departments are helpful, not very much room to grow. Definitely understand if you have a doctor appointment. People are willing to lend a hand.
Pros
Free breakfast
Cons
Some departments have to work while the company is closed for the end of year holidays.

$*r3w you college kid
confidential - dont want retribution (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaDecember 14, 2016
Very 'home brewed" management. they need some outside influence to help progress

If you did not rise up the ranks, preferably as ex-armed forces service - you will experience a daily routine of insults, 'this is how we always did it', 'why are you rocking the boat" and "i didn't need to go to college"

they work their people very hard, pay low, seldom promote - and rely on "but look at how the stocks are doing"

expect long hours, low pay, and lots of mistreatment.
Pros
they are big - and have lots of business
Cons
everything else

Stress free enviroment
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Secaucus, NJNovember 26, 2016
I learned a lot working for this company. One has to be vigilent and learn how to cope under stressful conditions especially when dealing with rude customers. A typical day at is mainly responding to emails, answering phone calls, signing customers and visitors in and out of the building.

Typical day involves facilities operations of critical cooling equipment and electrical equipment to insure 100% customer uptime. Most enjoyable part of job is being part of a company that plays such a big role in modern technology.
