Small company with solid opportunities

Sales Engineer (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at IronKey

ProsIronkey is a great place to work if you're experienced and thrive in an environment where you're self motivated and don't need a ton of direction. They expect that you're a solid professional, and don't micromanage your daily/weekly tasks. As long as you show results, you'll thrive.

ConsGiven that Ironkey is a small company, it would be tough to take a two week vacation (what's that?) or to generally let down your guard and unwind for a period (this applies mainly to the Sales org). It's a small, but dynamic team...and everyone is expected to be working hard to deliver the numbers. On the one hand, it's great to be in that situation...time flies and you're having fun...but things can get pretty busy and intense at times...which was fine for me, but may not be for everyone.

Good startup, Good place to work

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Los Altos, CA

I have been working at IronKey

ProsQuality of people and environment. People are friendly and competent and they try to work smartly. The snacks are a nice touch. There is always something interesting technically going around. The company seems recession-resistent and has some momentum. Management is approachable and works with you instead of against you, for the most part. Not too much politics.

ConsTypical startup lacks focus, tends to be reactive instead of proactive but that is changing. People are reassigned too often. Compensation is reasonable but could be higher. Being a security company, they emphasize best security practices which can go overboard in some cases.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on executing a few things well.
