    Overall company is great, but Technical Support you get no training, no help and they work you like a dog.

    Pros

    Benefits like insurance and PTO are good. I was lucky to get a good work shift 7 - 4.

    Cons

    Thrown in to the job, no training, no help when you are on the phone with customer. Was told 30 cases a week was satisfactory then they expect 40 then 50...management never satisfied. No matter how many calls you take, while some are not doing as much. Support is not where you want to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though you will be told in the interview you will get training, don't trust them. Since a few are leaving, Management might be getting the hint, but no training once past the initial phase will happen...no kidding.

    Pros

    Location was good for me. Fast-growing and well regarded by analysts. Rapid company growth can create advancement opportunities if you're politically savvy.

    Cons

    Lots of employee churn - people were out the minute they vested. No loyalty. Low-skilled, transactional sales team. Heavy workload, little recognition. Most managers were not good people managers. Bringing in a large number of managers from Dell, who seem intent on making SolarWinds an even gloomier version of Dell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. Treat them well. People want to do good work and be recognized.
