Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vienna, VA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vienna, VA

I have been working at Alarm.com full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-Benefits are good.
-Office is in good location.
-Easy to make friends.

Cons

If you enjoy being belittled on a daily basis while being forced to attend a daily (45min-1 hour+) meeting in which you must explain yourself in detail, what work you did the day prior and what you will do today, then this is the place for you!

With the many recent new executive hires (3 in 6 months) Alarm.com is quickly forming the same negative/corrupt atmosphere as their former parent company Microstrategy (MSTR). They are trying to create an “image” for the company instead of focusing on innovation, better products and happy customers. The strive for many to advance within the company is no longer there. With what was once considered be many to have a long term (possibly lifetime) career, have quickly been squashed in 6 months time, thanks to the new executives and the unethical, manipulating, conniving & harassing policies and procedures they have implemented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It’s a big world out there. I’m sure there’re must be qualified executives that didn’t work for/at your former parent company Microtragedy!

    Pros

    - Friendly environment & Great learning place..
    - Many helping hands.
    -
    - No matter what position you are in, most of the senior management treats you with great respect. Company believes that everyone is important for it to function properly.

    Cons

    - Not much interaction between senior management and the other workers.

    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.
