Former Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Austin, TX
Former Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Austin, TX

I worked at SolarWinds full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are decent
Pay is okay (but not as good as the margins would indicate)
Free lunch twice per week

Cons

Politics have taken over.
Innovation has come and gone.
Employee feedback might as well be a punchline to a bad joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pull your head out. Your ego has taken over what was once a successful collaboration of cross-functional teams.

    Unhealthy Work Environment, Too Much Conflict and Ego

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at SolarWinds full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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".
