I have been working at Solutionary full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Solutionary has a vision and drive to be the best in class for its MSS offerings. The drive has been successful and now Solutionary enjoys being part of the Gartner MSSP Leaders Quadrant, which is a great indicator the company is moving in the right direction.

The hiring process is thorough and the company tries to hire best-of-breed, but also balances this with giving opportunities to those who are entering the security industry as well.

There is a lot of opportunity to move between departments and rise through the management ranks if you desire. However, employees must prove their worth, which is a good thing. Who wants to promote someone just because they have been there for x years? Put in the effort and bring great ideas to the table and you will achieve. Also, this is true with any company, not just Solutionary.

Overall, benefit are great, the team is dynamic, and we get to see a lot of great things. Take the opportunity if offered a position.

Cons

Some may see the fast paced work environment as a con, but this is what helps us close the gap on others in the industry. Innovation and being able to get to market with a quality product sometimes requires moving at a fast pace. Being agile helps keep things fresh and motivating. I do not see this as a "con", but I was grasping for something negative to say and could not come up with anything else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to listen to your employees, this is the secret sauce that continues to make ActiveGuard a great product.

    I worked at Solutionary

    Pros

    The thing I liked most at Solutionary was the ability to learn new things. Anytime I was curious about how something worked, there were people willing to show me.

    Cons

    The management is terrible (don't listen to their employees), there are very few rewards, nothing ever changes despite your best efforts, and you're expected to work 24/7/365.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The industry that Solutionary in is a 24/7 industry and does require a lot of immediate fire-fighting, but recognize that your employees are the most important asset and do everything you can to help them cope with the rough industry.

    I have been working at Solutionary

    Pros

    - Work can be interesting, depending on which area you work in.
    - Decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Fuzzy Vision - Strategy and focus is constantly changing. Employees don't know where the organization is going and what it is trying to achieve.

    Lack of Leadership Skills – Leadership here can be either too directive or too hands-off. Upper management does not lead and does not manage change… they just administrate and micromanage. Also, you need to be liked and accepted by the founding members in order to survive here – if they don’t like you, they will make your life miserable.

    Discouraging Culture - The corporate culture does not inspire… it is thick with lack of trust, focus on who to blame; focus on problems, not opportunities; and failures are not tolerated. The lower level staff has no confidence in the leaders. There is little to no accountability and lack of professionalism from executive management.

    Lack of Initiative - Employees are not empowered; poor motivation and encouragement; people do not feel their contributions make a difference; management fails to engage the organization effectively; people work defensively and not creatively, they do their job, and nothing more.

    Poor Communication - Employees have no clue of the “big picture” and are very rarely informed of what is going on within the company. There is too much uncertainty and employees don't know what top-managers are thinking and planning.

    Poor Knowledge Management – C-level management has a “know-it-all” attitude and is unwilling to acknowledge failures let alone learn from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely re-organize C-level management. Get rid of many and put the few remaining in the appropriate positions. Even the founders of the company should be competent and held to the same standards as those who are not founders.

    Realize that not all revenue is good revenue. Some orders are worth passing up – especially when it ultimately costs you money to perform the services.

    Create and adhere to a vision, purpose and/or strategy. And communicate it!
