Great work atmosphere, steep learning curve!

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I have been working at SevOne as an intern for less than a year

Pros-Friendly atmosphere
-Awesome Culture
-No dress code
-Flexible hours (9-5, 10-6, 830-430)
-Supportive coworkers
-Plenty of opportunity
-Not too micromanaged
-Employee outings
-Approachable upper management
-Great outlook on future
-#33 on Forbes Most Promising Companies of 2014
-Employee appreciation

As long as you get your work done, great atmosphere with a fun group of coworkers.

Cons-Lack of structured training makes your start a bit frustrating
-Sophisticated product
-Average pay for highly technical job

If you have never been in the Network Performance Management field, there is a bit of a learning curve for using the highly advanced SevOne appliance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a more structured training program to allow people to transition into the job easier.

The Best Is Yet To Come!

Sales - Account Manager (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I have been working at SevOne full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA great Team; a great environment; relaxed and friendly atmosphere; awesome opportunities for professional growth; the company recognizes initiative and offers sense of appreciation to the top performers. It makes me want to come to work in the morning.

ConsThe company is growing VERY RAPIDLY, and by introducing more structure, at times, it feels as if the bureaucratic machine may take over. The company must do everything possible to not let it happen and to preserve the unique culture that makes it so special.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let the bureaucratic machine take over as the company grows. Preserve the unique culture that makes our company special.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

From start-up to corporate

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SevOne full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- Flexibility
- Decent benefits (some elementary stuff like Dental coverage is horrible though)
- You can usually still get stuff done
- Company events are a nice touch (bi-weekly lunches, free ice cream in the summer, etc)
- Lots of perks for developer, fancy desks, lounges, etc
- Promotions from within, but could be better, company needs to better recognize top performers

Cons- Feels more like big company now
- Loss of transparency (Senior Management used to be VERY approachable prior to the Series B investment, now it's like a secret society)
- New owners (Lots of uncertainty about the direction of the company, many things are "happening", but nothing gets communicated, or gets communicated long after the fact)
- New CEO slowly replacing existing management and bringing on his own crew
- HR up until recently non-existent, hope this changes now. When people are let go or leave on their own for whatever reason, please communicate that to the entire company.
- Some incompetency in various departments, no peer review process, only minimal top down
- Too many cooks in the kitchen / too many Chiefs and no Indians at times

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the work that long standing employees have done to get you here, we stayed because we believed, now believe in us, too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Fantastic, fast-paced, challenging and fun all rolled into one

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I have been working at SevOne full-time for less than a year

Pros- Friendly, casual work environment
- Fast pace - you'll never let you be bored
- Career growth and learning opportunities are abundant
- Collaborative team environment
- Little random events and perks throughout the week that make you know you're appreciated

ConsSalaries don't quite measure up to neighboring Philadelphia. There are some other benefits that make up some of the difference. If you look at just the check, you may be a little disappointed.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the growth!

Joke

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I have been working at SevOne full-time for more than 3 years

ProsDecent paycheck
Medical and Dental
Paid time off

Cons1. Employees in general are not happy unless you are a part of the "in crowd"
2. Lacks diversity. And this is coming from a non minority.
3. SVP Sales has a bad reputation in as having no morals. There are several sales guys that won't work for him.
4. Head of Marketing position has been a revolving door. The new guy is part of the "in crowd" with no marketing experience. The sales team does not respect him.
5. Recruiting team sent a mass email encouraging employees to leave a positive review. Look at the dates! Most are within a one week time span.
6. Needs to improve human resources.
7. Former CEO resigned. Great man.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your senior management team. One positive is that the CTO and SVP Operations are decent people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros- Great work environment
 - Family oriented, great camaraderie
 - Causal dress
 - Opinions are heard and matter

ConsWe are a growing company, so space is getting limited. When we are all making our calls, it can get distracting.

The Best Place To Work. PERIOD.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SevOne

ProsOne of the best companies you could choose to work for. Before SevOne I had numerous offers at some larger tech companies in the area. After interviewing with SevOne my decision was clear.

ConsLots of work to do, but you have fun doing it. Entry level pay can be lower than industry average. Jobs tend to change over time which can be a good thing or a bad thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work. Keep promoting from inside.
