Challenging and Rewarding

Manager - Strategy (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsI believe the best rewards are the ones you’ve worked hard to earn. That’s SolarWinds in a nutshell. Hard work, but great rewards.
- Bright, hard-working co-workers. At many places, I’ve had to work with an underperforming team member. You end up doing much of their work and your own. Under performers are not tolerated here. I personally find that to be a relief, but it does make for a different culture.
- Interesting work. It is fun to see your work ship and customers use it.
- Good compensation, including 401k matching
- Opportunities for career growth. I started as worker bee and I progressed through senior and lead positions. I am now in management.

Cons- Need to be firm on work/life boundaries
- Not having the time to excel on projects

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in the core products. And give your employees time to reset - more vacation days and PTO would be helpful.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
