    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to take/ask new innovative ideas for the products or a new product from all the employees. Definitely a bunch of great ideas will pop-up. Asking for innovative ideas is better than waiting for.

    Current Employee - Management Development Program Associate in Vienna, VA

    I have been working at Alarm.com full-time

    Pros

    Like any tech company, there are far more ideas than resources to execute those ideas. The advantage is that if you're resourceful and demonstrate you can get things done, it's easy to gain significant responsibility early on in your career.

    At Alarm.com, you really feel like you're treated like an adult. Senior management feels approachable even to junior employees, and you won't feel like anyone is looking over your shoulder. If you earn it by working hard and getting your job done, you'll have all the autonomy you could ask for.

    Cons

    Alarm.com makes great products because its culture is so product-centric. As a result, engineers, product managers, and other employees on the product teams may seem more "important." Beware that if you want to work outside of product, you're going to have to work harder to get attention.
