Global Account Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 26, 2016
At the time i was employed at Internap, the commission plan was stellar, as it was designed to incentivize the sales folks with not only new sales, but also renewing the existing agreements. This was an extremely lucrative time in my career. But at some point, as the adage goes - all good things must come to an end...they restructured the comp plan, and it was not nearly as fruitful as was prior. Some talented sales engineers that had been with the company for quite some time, so they knew how to move things through the internal process swiftly. Overall decent experience working there, but lacked the potential for professional growth internally.
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 27, 2016
The company hires management based off of friendships that the CEO has and not off of people who know what they are doing at the VP level and above. The new CEO is destroying the company and it shows with the stock price plummeting. Once he is gone than maybe things will turn around again. They also try and cheat you out of commissions and you have to be very aware of what you sold and what you are owed.
A great place to learn the IT side of business and hone skills
Customer Care Associate/Network Operations Center (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 17, 2015
An amazing place to work with great people.
I was assigned some of our top colocation clients to project manage. I was given the freedom to work through solutions and refine processes to make the client happy, save the company money, and allow for easy in-house learning at no internal extra cost.

Cool Tech and Lot's to Learn, But Management Doesn't Invest
Engineer (Current Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – March 8, 2015
I've been with the company for almost 2 years, one of which in operations, and have found that most managers have little to no interest in investing in their current staff in any way, shape or form. Turnover is high for the most qualified and competent engineers, leaving the least competent with the seniority, leading the worst people to leadership positions.
In addition, there is little to no investment in infrastructure. Some internal IT assets still run on late-90's Sun SPARC servers. Anything new is just a facade.
Finally, regardless of whether you're on-call or not, you're on-call, and will be disciplined for not answering your personal phone on your off day, despite no on-call compensation.
Free soda in the break room, some cool co-workers
Poor healthcare plans, poor management, high turnover, poor compensation, poor overall outlook, no investment in staff or infrastructure.
