Best Career Company
Senior IBX Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ashburn, VAMay 12, 2018
The atmosphere here at Equinix surpasses any company I've ever worked at. When you come to work and see people that are motivated and enjoy there jobs, then the company must be doing something right.

The Benefits are a nice bonus as well. Annual bonuses, quarterly performance bonuses, good health care/dental care, plus ESPP.

Equinix also has a tuition reimbursement program to help with those individuals who want to further their career.

The work itself can be relaxed or difficult depending on the task, yet all training is provided to help you succeed. With highly qualified personnel, there is no excuse why you cannot learn something new everyday here!
Pros
Free snacks and drinks, excellent benefits, relaxed enviroment
Cons
The commute

Network Technician I-IV (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAFebruary 2, 2018
Very immature employees, discussed with Manager about on job harassment and he actually laughed at me. Co-wokers continually made fun of my accent and un-cotrollable hand tremors which never prevented me from doing my job. Other workers refused to share educational training
Working with customers on various projects did make a lot of difference, they were always willing to share product information and trouble shooting experience.
Pros
Some co-workers I really enjoyed working with.
Cons
Job advancement was done on popularity basis, not quality or merit.

Average work atmosphere for a growing company.
Network Architect (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJanuary 12, 2018
I admire the way the company grasps new and emerging technologies and they have good potential for future growth, however, the way they treat contractors is counter productive. Contractors are not included in staff meetings or given access to critical daily activities that creates duplication of effort on many levels and hinders forward progress. The moment you ask for help, contractors are penalized for not being mind readers, and looked down upon.
Pros
Cordial employees. Good growth potential.
Cons
Poor or undefined strategies to achieve stated goals. No dedicated work space.

IBX SR. NETWORK TECHNICIAN IV (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 4, 2018
This is easily the best company I've ever worked for. The benefits and pay are unmatched in the industry.

There are little perks such as free lunch, fishing trips, and killer Christmas parties as well.

Friendly environment for non contract employees and terrible isolating for contact employees.
Global Ops Support Admin (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJanuary 2, 2018
They way that they treat the contract employees is terrible, I was at this company for more than 27 months but they isolated the contract employees and don't involve them in the daily activities which sometimes is a must for the progress of the work.

no good so far
Data Center Operations Technician (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLDecember 24, 2017
not too happy with the company, the hours are not that good. it is somewhat beneficial since you work 12 hours shifts and you rotate, but sometimes they don't let you.

Poor Management and Dysfunctional Organizational Culture
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CADecember 4, 2017
Company is good - growing fast; Leadership has no clue what's going on the ground. Product Software Architecture & Engineering group managers are techies with no management skills - poor management leading to dysfunctional org culture; management by fear is the practice here.

Winning business, experiences vary
Director (Former Employee) –  Bay Area, CANovember 27, 2017
I enjoyed several great years at Equinix. It was a vibrant and agile company, and top management were great leaders. One layer below, the management became fractured with a LOT of abrupt changes, and many employees lost key responsibilities, as well as lost contact with *and respect from* their leader, who inevitably wanted to bring in their own people from the outside, at a huge expense.
