Pros

Some great people to work with. Good banter.
Free lunch a couple of time and close to Mahon Point for shopping on your break.
Very generous with bonuses and acknowledge the work you put in.
It's a job where you get back as much as you put in

Cons

It can be stressful at times but thats just the nature of the job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Over the last 6 months the company has gone from strength to strength with some new faces in management. Manager Wayne and VP Sales Peter are two new faces who bring efficiency and a great charm to the job.

    Pros

    Fun work environment... not too many places let you play table tennis and sometimes managers join in.
    Great earning potential.
    Their business model brings about the kind of growth figures other software companies can only envy and will start copying (Inside Sales is Solarwinds).
    Fantastic co-workers.

    Cons

    Could do more to roll out a career path the way they do world class software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good that you're listening and recent changes reflect this company being EMEA through and through: the last few managers hired replace either American managers or people brought up in the American way. It's encouraging you are now promoting from within although talented salespeople aren't always management material...try career plan to discover hidden talent on the floor!

    Pros

    The commission rocks here and my monthly take home pay is on average EUR1000 more than other companies. In my view Solarwinds is the best sales job in Cork. Not saying it's an easy gig but this is the New York of Inside Sales and the place you gotta prove yourself in if you want to be the best. Company gym. Free soft drinks, confectionary, hot beverages and yoghurts. Free lunch Wednesdays. Free coffee Friday. Cash spiffs. Subsidized cinema tickets. Nice location/office/business park. Sound management and work colleagues... the people here really make Solarwinds! They know how to celebrate, and company nights out involve plenty of drink vouchers.

    Cons

    Even though all good sales people get a buzz from being outside their comfort zone, sometimes there's a tendency by management here to try to speed up the sales cycle when a considered approach might work better in some cases. That said they give very honest feedback and you learn quickly in this environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positivity!
