Q: What is it like working as a Storage Area Network (SAN) Systems Administrator?

October 2013
"New and engaging technology"
Storage Area Network (SAN) Systems Administrator:
Pros: I like that the field has a lot to offer when it comes to new and upcoming technology. What I mean by that is the fact that we have a state of the art datacentre where we house the latest and greatest in compute environments as well as optical transport equipment. The learning opportunity is great.
Cons: Highly stressful job with no concrete description of what falls under my responsibilities and what falls under the team. The working environment is not seemingly open for questions or suggestions for the company and the owners of the company have done little to nurture the company culture.

"Good not Great."
Storage Area Network (SAN) Systems Administrator:
Pros: Opportunity to be brought on board for new projects without previous experience. Good vacation, holiday, and sick time. Good health benefits. I enjoy the people I work with. Flexibility of approval for time off. No shortage of work (the IT department I work in is notorious for biting off more than we can chew.)
Cons: Pay for specialized IT positions (SAN admin, SCCM Admin, exchange admin, etc.) is very low compared to private sector jobs. Management, at times makes decisions about projects without consulting or even letting the techs who will be affected know. The environment is very reactive and rarely proactive. Important projects and considerations are put on the back burner until it becomes a serious problem that needs immediate attention. I haven't had an evaluation in over 3 years. I have a hard time determining if I am doing well and don't get raises based on performance. This makes it hard to be motivated to grow professionally.

"Working in Paradise..."
Storage Area Network (SAN) Systems Administrator in Miami:
Pros: Miami is my home town and I find my self lucky as I believe I work in Paradise everyday. The beaches are about 30 min away and I try to take advantage every time I can.
Cons: Miami is a "melting pot" of ethnicities and back grounds. That does not make it bad but there are some areas around the area that make it difficult for others to work or live in.
