TECHNICIAN II (Current Employee) – Tukwila, – June 11, 2018
I have enjoyed my time with Digital Realty. The Four x 10 Work Week allows for quality/family time usually not afforded in the 24/7/365 telco world. My only issue is due to skeleton crew there is no room for advancement.
IT Business Analyst Level (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 23, 2018
I would do my work and attend a weekly meeting to cover potential obstacles. I learned a lot on how a worldwide enterprise functions. Upper management could be better if office politics didn't get in the way. There would be at most a yearly off-work function. Hardest part of the job would be that there was rarely a chance for promotion, so all the hardwork that is done is often gone unnoticed. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the coworkers I was able to learn from.
Assistant Real Estate Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – May 8, 2018
Don't' trust these fools with your career. I joined this company with the high expectations to learn that management is dysfunctional and incapable of communication. There is little training, and less cross training. The DC Ops guys are great. They really know what they are doing. The Marketing Team and the Asset Management team were a pleasure to work with and had a comfortable corporate culture. I can't say the same for Portfolio Ops, and would describe the Northern California mid-management team as incompetent.
The other teams are a pleasure to work with
Hyper paranoid management, no collaboration, corrupt people
Business Finance Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 27, 2018
Digital Realty is a great place to learn about commercial real estate and the data center industry from the ground up. However, lack of communication between departments and lack of conviction in what is wanted creates an atmosphere in which you aren't sure where your career is heading.
Digital absorbed Telx so there were some growing pains as expected. Overall Telx and Digital are a good match. Management has a good handle on both the needs of customers and employees. When resources are requested, they are quickly made available. Support is always a call away.
Digital Realty is aggressively making positive improvements for customers and staff.
Market Development Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 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.
Data Center Technician (Former Employee) – California – October 6, 2017

Engineer II (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – October 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.
