    Pros

    decent place to get your foot in the door for the software industry, although there are literally hundreds of other places in 128 area to do the same.

    Cons

    There are probably to many cons to list
    -Upper management rules by fear and intimidation
    -you must be a favorite in order to advance within the company
    -if you are not a "yes" man then there is no point in even applying for a position here
    -constant hiring from 1 former company in particular has just shifted the negative aspects of that workplace into Unitrends
    -while it is a good product at a good price they are far from leading edge technology, and implementation failures have cost the company and resellers of there's hundreds of thousands
    -they have such little faith in their own culture, and know that all of these critiques are true, that they will "encourage" their employees to post multiple high approving posts after this one. They would rather counteract negative posts by "embellishing" on future posts, than to actually address and fix the issues they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change as much upper management as you can, focus on the good workers who care and have an opinion, try to actually be the company you claim to be.

    Pros

    the location is easy to get to. it's a good product that does what it says it will. when you get people to finally know who Unitrends is.

    Cons

    management doesn't want to hear what you have to say if it isn't in lock step with their thoughts. base salary is paltry compared to other companies in the area. there must be a completely different way the company is run from headquarters. all of the positive reviews come from south carolina and all the non satisfied ones are in massachusetts. there is probably a very good reason for this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    multiple people have said it before. listen to what your employees have to say. you say you do, but you only listen to the ones who echo your sentiment. also, please make sure that the people involved in sales decisions have done sales before and know how the process works.

    Pros

    Good technology at a decent price.
    Good support team.
    Good market space that won't be completely commoditized for another couple years.

    Cons

    Company operates a "boiler room" in Burlington, MA.
    Favoritism and cliques rule this company.
    Management is incompetent to the point of caricature.
    Pitiful base salary for sales reps.
    Unacceptable and inexcusable behavior by senior employees and management - too many instances to list.
    Policies and initiatives are laid out without follow through.
    Management doesn't lead by example. Key positions in the organization lack even the most basic understanding of the market space they inhabit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold everybody in the organization accountable to the same set of standards. The dissonance between the culture in MA and the culture in SC is deafening.
    Stop treating dissenting opinions as if they're signs a person is not a "team player". By not truly allowing open dialogue, you end up creating your own biggest obstacles.
    Hire a CEO that doesn't live in a different state than corporate HQ.
    Hire a Sales Director with channel experience and a track record of successfully managing employees.
    Eliminate the "regional sales manager" role. It's a non-revenue generating position.
    Perform exit interviews on the next group of employees that leave the company. If people who are leaving the company all reported to the same manager, it’s likely not a coincidence.
