    I have been working at Unitrends full-time (more than an year)


    You're paid well and your performance is recognized and compensated. Lots of room for growth and promotions are merit based. Very competitive products which are not too difficult to sell.


    As with most tech jobs, you will be required to put in a lot of hours to meet and exceed quota. This is more a reflection of the industry and not this job/company in particular.

    Positive Outlook
