    Pros

    Salary, benefits, fast pace, 'get it done' attitude.

    Cons

    Lots of conflict, egos and overall unhappy work environment. Turnover is rampant; people are belittled and made to feel that they are replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    This company is quickly, getting a bad reputation around town. It will not be long until it is hard to retain quality talent, as it is common knowledge around town, and even other cities, that Solarwinds has a horrific work environment. I have even been to job interviews where the company questioned whether to hire me base solely on the fact that I came from Solarwinds and said, " they didn't' want me to bring THAT bad work environment to this company".

    Good pay and 2 lunches per week, chaos and lots of egos and interpersonal arguments.

    Slow down with the acquisitions and take a look at your internal workings.
