    Pros

    Great company with upward mobility. Fast paced, but also a flexible and casual work environment. If you are willing to work hard and put in the time, it is usually recognized.

    Cons

    Like any company, no one is 100% perfect. They are taking appropriate actions to fix the areas that need improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the areas of improvement and the resources that will take Solutionary to the next level.

    Pros

    Very intelligent people working with you everyday. Opportunity to learn many things since drinking from a fire hose.

    Cons

    Sweatshop environment. Sales team to sell without back-end support knowledge --huge gap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need proper mangers with less micromanagement from executive team. More trust, communication and policies within management levels.

    Pros

    Great company for an entry level, new graduate, who is seeking a career in IT Security.

    Cons

    Unless you can somehow break into the 'inner circle' of trusted upper management, you will most likely be left to rot. You will be expected to work long hours for no apparent reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your number one asset is your people, you should treat them as assets, not simply as a payroll expense. Develop them, trust them, compensate them well, and let them grow.

    Great if you are a customer, horrible if you are an employee

    Pros

    Great place to learn security. There are varying technologies that can help you build your skillset.

    Cons

    The original owners (are you reading this NTT?) should have been given their walking papers long ago. Their overwhelming egos are not matched by their skills. They publicly berate the staff, drive away truly competent employees and cover for others who have few talents, unless screeching is considered a talent. It's very sad because there are some awesome people who work there and the service is basically sound

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To NTT: Get rid of the original owners, they are the doom of your investment.

    Bullying at its best

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn about the information security field and work with some of the brightest people you will ever meet.

    Cons

    Constant bullying all but one of the c-level staff, and refusal to deal with obvious incompetence by most of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    C-level staff should quit and take their family members with them. It doesn't matter how many employees you coerce into writing good reviews on glassdoor, you need to have a hard dose of reality and realize the company is better off without you. You have a select few sr managers that can make the company great.

    Poor Outlook

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros

    - Staying sharp in the world of information security.
    - Depending on position, access to cutting edge technology.
    - Abundant resources to learn about said technology if you are not in a position to get hands on experience.

    Cons

    - As already stated, this company is run on nepotism and cronyism. What do you expect from a company run by a family?
    - The "management" team does absolutely nothing but continually insult their most talented employees by placing their friends in leadership positions.
    - Training is absolutely horrendous and monotonous, and only encourages newer employees to seek employment elsewhere in the company or even leave entirely.
    - Policies are changed on-the-fly with no justification behind it other than a management member got bored one day.
    - Employees are frequently asked to take on more roles without any compensation. This leads to nothing but overburdened and frustrated employees.
    - All of these complaints fall on deaf ears while upper management continues to preach this that the organization is rich in culture.
    - If you make a mistake, expect to be publicly shamed.
    - Once again, if you make a mistake, expect management to make erroneous assumptions and never actually ask you what happened. In other words, expect to be put on the chopping block for a simple mistake.
    - Employees are expected to be the equivalent to a robot, if you make a spelling mistake, expect to chastised like a 13 year old in middle school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You fail to listen to the frustrations of your employees, and as a result have suffered the consequences. If proactive steps are taken before it's too late, this company could last well into the future. So please, listen to them.

    Nepotism and Abuse of Employees

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE

    Pros

    The technology behind their software.

    Cons

    The company is run by a family. If you are in with them you are "golden"; otherwise, plan on each day getting yelled at and cursed out, and picking up the slack for those who are untouchable. The company preaches culture but treats employees like dirt. This company has the most demoralizing work environment you could ever imagine. Run away as fast as you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire, bring in seasoned leadership to take over.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Omaha, NE

    Pros

    Solutionary offers a multitude of career opportunities for individuals interested in a career in IT Security. The promotion opportunities for someone starting out are outstanding.

    Cons

    The culture in some departments is counter-productive to career growth. With mass-correction and near public berating of people learning a new job and a new skill, the sense to leave at all costs continues to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mentor your employees, listen to them and be sensitive to shifts in morale.
