Went down hill when WEB.COM they bought Networksolutions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Solid Cactus full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOk place to start right out of college. No place to go from there

ConsThey over promise is and under deliver.
Company does not give raise, only stock and bonus, they claim it is based on performance but it is not since overall compensation goes down every year.

New management team does not listen to employee concerns.

Company does not offer a good service to customer either. Not enough employees to do a proper job

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Needs a union!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Shavertown, PA

I have been working at Solid Cactus

ProsStandard PTO
Time off if your pet dies

ConsNo raises, ever
No room for advancement
Benefits are terrible
Communication is unheard of

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is too interested in giving themselves raises. What is wrong has been brought to them many times and has fallen on deaf ears. We are seeing our fellow employees walking right out the door and not looking back. How many more good people are going to follow?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ok for a first job - don't work here more than a year

Search Engine Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Wilkes Barre, PA

I worked at Solid Cactus

Prosfree soda, cool people, interesting experience, cafe at work (although the food isn't took good and its overpriced)

Consrandom layoffs, minimal job security, terrible pay, no loyalty, no privacy / "big brother" (im conversations and emails are monitored, security cameras), overly strict about arbitrary rules (like its not ok to come in at 9:05 even though you worked 11 hours the day before)

Advice to Senior Managementtake a business class, be loyal to your employees, stop sweating stupid small rules and focus on whats important

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
