Veterans are Leaders at Equinix
« En tant qu'ancien officier de l'armée de l'air américaine, j'ai trouvé chez Equinix un deuxième foyer. La culture d'Equinix trouve un écho particulier chez moi, surtout pour ce qui est des valeurs fondamentales telles que "faire passer nous avant moi", "être une source d'énergie" et "servir les autres". Je crois qu'elles trouveront le même écho chez tous les anciens combattants et réservistes militaires. Qu'attend Equinix de vous en retour ? Simplement le meilleur de vous-même au quotidien, votre sens du leadership et de la discipline ainsi que votre volonté de vous retrousser les manches et mettre la main à la pâte. Cela semble parfait pour un ancien militaire, n'est-ce-pas ? Tout à fait ! »
Meet a Few Veterans with Careers at Equinix
Brian D. Huard, CFM, DCE
I joined the Equinix team in 2013 and over these last two years have found myself thinking that I just may have found my professional home.
After six years of military service, I decided to give civilian life a chance and took a job as a Field Service Engineer. I spent the next eight years learning and honing my skills, but always felt that the camaraderie I experienced in the military was missing.
For the last two years I have been working for Equinix as a member of the Southeast Regional team to achieve Equinix’ rigorously high standards regarding every aspect of the customer experience at our IBXs. It has been an extremely challenging endeavor and I know that our ultimate success would not have been possible if it weren’t for the willingness of my team to band together and act as one unit working toward a common goal. Some call it teamwork, working together or esprit de corps… I just know that since leaving the military, I hadn’t found it until I joined Equinix.
After serving for eight years in the U.S. Coast Guard and traveling all over the country for most of that time, my wife and I decided it was time to settle down.
Transitioning from a military lifestyle that offers an immense sense of security to the civilian world was unsettling to say the least. After doing some research, interviewing with a bunch of companies up and down the East Coast and weighing all of my options, it became clear to me that Equinix was the right choice.
Equinix provided me with a challenging and constantly evolving environment, where I could put my many years of training to use immediately upon coming aboard. After only a short time with the company, I realized that all of the principles that were the driving force for my success in my previous job, were the same ones sought after and rewarded at Equinix. From day one, that sense of security I was so concerned about walking away from was there.
I have now been with Equinix for just over eight years and I can honestly say that joining this team was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
As a veteran transitioning into a civilian career, one of the biggest needs that I had was to find an environment that truly supported the kind of camaraderie and cohesion between team members that was a daily part of my career as a soldier.
Après 20 années passées dans l'armée de l'air avant de devenir employé civil de l'armée, la camaraderie est l'une de ces choses qui sont devenues un « besoin » essentiel pour moi dans mes choix de carrière – un besoin que quiconque faisant partie de l'armée ou travaillant en association avec l'armée peut éprouver, et que j'ai comblé dans le cadre de mon travail chez Equinix.
Beyond the camaraderie, I found the work environment at Equinix to be similar to the one I left behind in the military in how the organization really looks out for every facet of our work-life. We have access to all of the tools and applications we need to be successful at our jobs, and even programs designed to help us thrive in our personal lives, like great medical benefits, paid time off and training.
Because of the strong camaraderie and these programs, my transition back from Afghanistan was a lot more seamless and helped me to adjust well.
En tant que vétéran, j'appréhendais la transition vers la vie civile et la façon dont ma formation allait se passer. Finalement, cette appréhension s'est avérée infondée. En fait, je me suis vite rendu compte que travailler chez Equinix est une expérience à la fois exigeante et gratifiante. J'y ai trouvé un environnement où je peux mettre directement à contribution les compétences que j'ai acquises dans l'armée.
La culture établie par Equinix favorise non seulement la transition en douceur, mais permet également aux vétérans de trouver leurs marques et d'exceller.
One of the biggest ways my experience in the U.S. Coast Guard prepared me for a career at Equinix was to instill in me its motto “Semper Paratus” or “Always Ready.” From the military I learned to develop a forward-thinking perspective that has allowed me to anticipate the future and quickly adapt to change.
Cette vision prospective m'est d'une grande aide chez Equinix, une entreprise qui a bâti sa réputation sur la qualité supérieure des services qu'elle offre à ses clients qui se recrutent dans une gamme variée d'industries et qui utilisent une technologie en constante évolution.
FI think Equinix is a great career home for transitioning servicemen and women because of the way the culture really values the strong work ethic, dedication, and sense of duty that we bring to the table. There is also a great camaraderie among team members, many of whom have served in various branches of our nation’s armed forces, that makes Equinix a really fun place to work.
I was blessed to have a military career in telecommunications, a field that easily transitioned into the civilian world.
Through my experience in the military I learned core technical skills that have allowed me to be successful in my professional career. Beyond this technical training, the military also taught me the importance of a strong work ethic, teamwork, attention to detail, and how to follow processes and procedures. I have found all of these to be skills that are truly valued at Equinix.
One of the things I like most about working at Equinix is the chance to see that strong team culture in action every single day.
