I worked at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Investors will be happy when the company reaches REIT. If you like to watch "Game of Thrones," you can play a real life version working here.

Cons

Just about everything else. The company prides itself on promotions, but they are just title elevations. Brown nosing is encouraged. When people leave, no one gets promoted to the actual vacant role, except for the sycophants, and even then it is only if the director or VP does not have a friend they want to give the job to. Interviews are a dog and pony show; management knows whom they want to hire, despite how under qualified or incompetent they are. People are asked to leave when they voice disagreements. Lost of intradepartment feuding when a senior person leaves as each director strives to make their team look good and everyone else look bad. You can tell who is losing because he or she will jump ship and let his or her underlings be reassigned to the conquering manager.

Advice to Management

Get your act together! You cannot leave departments leaderless for months to years and not expect this sort of mentality. Be more vigilant about the cronyism. There is a lot of it.

    I have been working at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company offers decent compensation with a nice benefits package including healthcare. Training for new hires is thorough and they provide strong sales support.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of trial and error over the recent past. They dabbled in digital solutions by buying various companies in the digital backup space but then sold them off. The foundation of the business is paper storage and they are by far the largest service provider. The problem is that they already have most of the largest clients so growth from those is minimal. Raises haven't come to existing sales personnel for extended periods and in some cases for many years. The CEO of more than 30 years just retired. Not sure what effect that will have. He was one of the best.

    Advice to Management

    Look back at the people that have helped you thrive and recognize tenure. Not giving raises to existing employees and then paying new hires bigger base salaries to lure them in is a recipe for disaster. It costs more to train a new hire than to give someone a raise that's well deserved.
