I worked at SolarWinds

Pros

nice office ?
and some colleagues

Cons

Terrible place to work. I fully agree with others here ...If you have no clue you can learn some (yourself) if you'll have a time to close enough tickets but if you have some experience avoid it will only mess your head up.and you'll be pissed ... Forget about being creative ... it's only work work nothing else .. Understaffed all the time ...
Expectations Sky High -Training NONE!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people this is not Sparta!!!!

    No real culture. A truly hostile environment.

    I worked at SolarWinds full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good.
    Company is growing rapidly.
    Opportunity to learn a truly innovative business model firsthand.

    Cons

    There is a small clique of execs and middle managers that create a massive bureaucracy.
    Finger-pointing is the norm - very little teamwork.
    Employees are treated as disposable resources.
    Managers are challenged with unattainable goals, and then are not empowered with authority or budget to effect activities that could help get closer to goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit participating in group think within small cliques, and trust the people you've hired to do their job. It may not always be done exactly the way you thought it would be, but you might learn something from the experience of others.

    I have been working at SolarWinds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    free lunch twice a week

    Cons

    not interested in the people, board level makes money but thats about it - very heavy handed when it comes to Staff - leave and we will take legal action type set up, so staff are always watching over there shoulders - spent 2 years and best decision was the day I deciðed to leave

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop chasing the money, you got enough in the bank to start caring about staff well fare
