I have been working at SolarWinds

Pros

fast-paced, successful company. good pay/bonus amounts, 401k matching, free lunches & snacks, beautiful building. fun, smart co-workers.

Cons

most of the stuff you see at a growing software company: it can be chaotic, departments aren't always coordinated, it's kind of sink or swim sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep trying to find the perfect blend of process, speed, and flexibility. make executive management accountable for the management decisions of the line managers - get feedback from employees and get rid of bad managers.

    Pros

    if you can stick around for a few years through the hardships, once you establish a track records people will respect you and you will eventually get prompted. but it takes a long time to get there.

    Cons

    very difficult place for newbies.
    departments don't exactly talk very well.
    some departments are way let's make this quarter driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    company has grown. folks who helped the company grow more or less have been rewarded. a lot of new folks have come in since. you need to provide a clear path for them to get to a place where they can earn more money without leaving the company. management doesn't seem most approachable about a raise.
