Manager (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – September 28, 2017
I've spent years here and if you want to have the best on the job training opportunity in tech, go here. I've been very happy during my time here. The people are cooperative and everyone is focused on doing what's right for the customer so there's not any overbearing egos to contend with.

Easy going place to work. This of course implies you know what you're doing. Boss is really flexible with schedules. Leads to problems in that some employees are consistenly late and making others pick up the slack. Overall, it was a great place to work.

It's a very professional environment that can offer plenty of challenges to most seasoned developers. The company does go above and beyond to take good care of their employees. My only complaint would be that if you're into development there's no good way up for you... unless you want to change to management. Aside from that, it's a well rounded company.
Good benefits and generous vacation time, Challenging environment, Working with brilliant people.
No career ladder unless you want to switch careers, Pay scale for departments other than IT is relatively low, Some coworkers can be a bit difficult to deal with.

Hosting is a wonderful idea of a company, until you look closely at where they expect to grow organically. They literally have no idea how to grow, or even a good grasp on their current book of business. They are more concerned with what's coming in this month instead of growing their pipeline many months down the road. They have an immature approach to their segmentation and cannot find the right messaging to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive market. Oh, and they think a $4.4B company is their main competitor, when they are barely an $80M company. Talk about David versus Goliath. Management is conflicted and often relies upon the mercurial whims of the CEO and COO. Unless you like volatility, don't work here.
Nice facility, intelligent employees
Micromanaged to death, Management afraid to pick a direction and go

Working for Hosting is great! The entire company is personable and likable, including the CEO. You never feel like an outsider. The casual work environment allows you to be yourself. The atmosphere is fun and friendly; for example, there are ping pong tables, pool tables, and video game consoles in the break rooms. I have learned so much working with Hosting. My manager allows me the flexibility I need to balance my work and home life.

I've been employed at Hosting.com for 6 years now and during those 6 years I've seen the company grow, switch hands to new owners and watched while the company allowed great employees leave due to the low pay and issues with management fester. The company it's self is a good place to be, you'll be surrounded by great people, even better technicians who love / enjoy what they do however it gets overshadowed by poor release planning and implementation, which I will say is being slowly rectified but only after damage is done.
Many times when a new product is released and tech's are called to support it they are scrambling to get info on that product, which while is trial under fire they manage to get the job done but they shouldn't have too.
Benefits while good constantly go up and the pay is low, which is what prompts many of the tech's to leave as they can't afford to survive on what they are being paid. Upside is there is plenty of growth if you can move up the ladder.
