    Great company, bad experience with individuals.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsSolutionary offers a multitude of career opportunities for individuals interested in a career in IT Security. The promotion opportunities for someone starting out are outstanding.

    ConsThe culture in some departments is counter-productive to career growth. With mass-correction and near public berating of people learning a new job and a new skill, the sense to leave at all costs continues to grow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMentor your employees, listen to them and be sensitive to shifts in morale.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Ups and Downs, all and all you learn IT Security Practices to carry on with you

    Information Security Analyst (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros- Decent Pay for Entry Level
    - Paid security Plus training and Certification (refer to Cons for this as well)
    - If you love OT it is there for the taking

    Cons- 24/7/365, so expect a lot of work load carry over from the previous shift.

    - Culture is not very enjoyable in the Pittsburgh office, it seems a lot of Information Security Analysts are rushing to get moved to another department, which makes the surroundings in the Security Operations Center nearly unbearable at times.

    -CompTIA Security+ Certification is mandatory in order to keep your employment, at the time I got hired in October of 2012 It was not mentioned that this training and certification was even required. It is a good thing that the company is paying for a single weeks training on the material involved on the exam, and they provide you the text book for your own self study as well pay for the exam.

    "Warning: If you are a student out side of Solutionary working to get a Bachelor's in IT such as myself, expect to put it aside for intensive Security+ studying. If you fail the exam once, you are given the option to take it again within a single week's time, but if a second failed attempt occurs the financial burden of the exam falls on you the employee, or you will be terminated".

    Please understand this is my con, but not to drive anyone away from a good opportunity to emerge yourself in the information security world.

    Advice to Senior Management"Moving forward let new hires for "Information Security Analysts" understand at the interview, before they take your offer that CompTIA Security + is required to maintain employed"

    Fast-paced, sometimes reactionary, CEO is confused

    Information Security Analyst (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsThey promote from within, you will work hard but see results

    ConsThinks it still a mom and pop shop

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe less reactionary, care more about employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK for Entry Level and Security Experience - don't stay long

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people and technology are awesome. Training is available for the SOC personnel and growth is possible from the SOC into other positions - Systems, Managed Devices, Account Management and Consulting. People are invested in their own teams.

    ConsLimited growth beyond mid-manager because the company is so small. The Sr. management team can be very controlling and very emotional. The work environment can be rough so expect a lot of yelling and finger pointing when things go wrong. Ultimately this is a husband wife team with Sr. Managers who have been together too long. They think they communicate but they don't. Employees who have been there a while gripe a lot so it is easy to become negative especially if you are in the Omaha office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing will change unless you hire experts who have worked in the industry and are outside of the current Sr. Management team. Ultimately the non-growth is due to the C-level decisions and this won't change until the team is split up or forced to change by outside investors.
