    Fast Paced and Still Growing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company with upward mobility. Fast paced, but also a flexible and casual work environment. If you are willing to work hard and put in the time, it is usually recognized.

    ConsLike any company, no one is 100% perfect. They are taking appropriate actions to fix the areas that need improvement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on the areas of improvement and the resources that will take Solutionary to the next level.

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

    Good and fair place to work, with a open door to furthering an IT Security carreer :)

    Information Security Analyst (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros- Learn a lot when it comes to IT Security, plus company paid "Security +" certification training and testing.

    - Fair pay for entry level

    - Advancement opportunities are there if you work at them.

    - Tons of Overtime

    Cons- 24/7/365 so shifts are filled as needed

    - Security+ Certification is required as a "Information Security Analyst" with no exceptions, this as mentioned is provided and paid for by Solutionary.

    Hot Company in a Hot Industry

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- No better industry to be in right now in IT.
    - Unlimited career opportunities if you work hard and seize them.
    - Proven track record of tremendous growth over many years.
    - Being a private company allows for Solutionary to invest money how it sees fit (research, development, sales, etc) without the stress that goes along with public companies. A much better situation for customers in a fast-changing area driven by compliance.

    Cons- Very high expectations internally and externally demand long hours and plenty of stress.
    - Difficult to find solid candidates willing to perform hard work sometimes.

    Advice to Senior Management- Make the investment in streamlining customer acquisition to be more efficient.

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

    Great experience, lots of unique challenges, tons to learn!

    Information Security Engineer (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsSolutionary is a MSSP rivaled by no other with regards to its passion for customer service.

    There are always unique challenges to face, and working with many platforms lets you dabble in a little bit of everything.

    There are lots of very talented people working at Solutionary, which provides a lot of experiences to learn something new and exciting.

    ConsSince the company is growing at a crazy pace, there is often plenty of work to go around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush for more subject matter experts. Send employees to more workshops and conferences to strengthen their abilities.

    Rewarding and challenging environment

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsBeing involved in creating and fielding cutting edge technology while the company experiences tremendous growth is a very challenging and rewarding experience. The leadership of the organization is very passionate about customer service and it shows in every email and phone call that takes place.

    ConsIt is very difficult to get bored. The tempo of the organization, regardless of department, is as fast paced as anywhere I have ever seen and can be very hectic. The ability to multitask and keep multiple projects running simultaneously is a definite requirement here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your middle management enough that you can take a step back and relax from time to time.

    If you want and can handle real challenges, Solutionary has no shortage of them!

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsCompany Culture: I have worked for many companies over the years. No other company has impressed me as much as Solutionary has in how passionate it is about its customers and how it aligns all its staff and energy around its customers. Solutionary is almost fanatical about being there for its customers; it is this strength, I believe, that keeps the company successful and growing at an impressive rate.

    Technology & Knowledge Challenges: I have always found Information Security to be a fun challenge because of how many technologies and layers of technology one needs to understand in order to understand how to make them secure. Solutionary, as an MSSP, takes log feeds from, works with, and needs to understand a very diverse set of technologies, layers and business environments. That all combined with the challenges of more creative attack vectors and rigorous regulatory standards, really pushes the knowledge curve. And on top of that, the commitment to the customers' real challenges ensures that Solutionary doesn't just check the box for a security challenge, but really manages the risk.

    Growth Challenges: As the company grows, it develops new processes and structures to help it scale its operations. Being a part of such a growing company can be exciting as anyone can take initiative and help formulate a better and more efficient way to get things done. The key is to take the personal initiative sometimes.

    ConsSometimes, due to how busy many of the staff are, it is a bit challenging to get a hold of folks one needs to communicate and work with in order to get his or her own work done. Being patient and persistent is key.

    Also, due to how customer service focused the entire organization is, plans need to be fluid and flexible enough to ensure that they are seen through to completion and survive evolving priorities and timelines. This can be frustrating to some that are used to predictably, but exciting to those that appreciate being kept on their toes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay true to the course that the company is heading. But embrace the occasional mistakes and failures employees may make - they only make mistakes because they are trying to do the right thing.

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

    A good Security company if you are looking for growth opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsSolutionary seems committed to assisting employees who wish to grow professionally and develop skills, and has a promote from within culture.

    ConsPerhaps due to the lower compensation packages, many of the more entry-level positions have people who do not seem to care about team work or setting up others for success, having a do enough to get by attitude.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to look for opportunities to communicate with employees the ways in which they can grow, get everyone involved as a stakeholder in the company

    Challenging, fast-paced environment where you can learn a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSolutionary is constantly growing. There is a lot of positive momentum, and it's a great and challenging place to work if you like the fast pace. They promote from within and reward team play. The company still has a start-up feel in many ways and provides so much room for individual growth and ingenuity. Out of the box thinking is encouraged and rewarded. You get to work on a team of like-minded individuals pushing in the same direction to make the company successful. It's really an encouraging environment

    ConsThe biggest con is the fast pace causing rapid shifts in focus day to day. At a high level, the company has several long term strategic objectives it stays focused on, but the rate of its positive progress is slowed down by rapid changes in focus day to day. It is hard to stay focused on any one project long enough at a stint to finish it in a timely manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet go of the day to day firefighting and allow your middle management tiers to handle it. Continue to communicate and reinforce strategic direction with middle management and truly hold them accountable for showing progress. Reinforce strategic direction every single day, we can't hear it enough.
