    Pros

    I have worked for Unitrends for several years. At the time, I was looking for a company which featured cutting edge technology and a leader in its field and rewards its employees in income and recognition. In my time here I have experienced the efforts and resources the organization has taken to give me the proper tools to exceed my personal and company objectives. This is a result of many factors some of which are: • Great leadership from the executive to mid management level. • Hands on management ready to assist and total involvement with accounts in order to facilitate a high close ratio • Invaluable On-going Training relevant to job success and continued professional development • Aggressive but attainable goals which keeps me challenged and compensated fairly • Excellent communication within the organization which has helped me be on the same page with my external and internal clients If you want to be paid for your performance and potential with a team that has the right mix for success then Unitrends is a place for you

    Cons

    intra-departmental communications can be improved

    Pros

    Great manager and wonderful team members. Very modern software package and a respectable backup/disaster solution. Good internal training. Definitely enjoyed my time with them.

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are doing a good job and are nice to the employees. It is simply an extremely fast paced place with changes coming in daily. I would recommend that the management stress this part to any potential employee.

    Pros

    The company has some good things going for them and they are putting the effort in to stay ahead of the trends. You have the ability to make good money.

    Cons

    Talk about hating to wake up everyday to go to work!! I knew from my first day of employment this was going to be a horrible experience. Here are a few things that I didn't like about the position / company. - Managers might say they don't micro manage but your time and tasks are 100% micro managed. - If you get excited about receiving emails this is the place for you, your manager will send one out every 5 minutes. (It will include a creepy wink eye and of course every email is marked as urgent) - You are assigned a territory of current customers to call on to grow the account, well you end up calling all these customers 1-2 times a week. - High pressure sales tactics. - Wait until you find out the unique "algorithm" the manager uses to determine average, it's mind blowing!!

    Advice to Management

    Find out what your teams truly think of you. You'll be disappointed in yourself.

    Pros

    Efficient marketing hype machine geared towards continually pestering current customers into buying more technology which they do not need based on FUD sales tactics.

    Cons

    Do NOT work in the Philly office. It is horrible. Absolutely soul crushing office environment coupled with incompetent ego-driven micro managers with little to no understanding of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Philadelphia management team, they are completely useless and do nothing to promote a positive sales environment or inspire people to work harder. Employees show up as late as possible and leave as soon as acceptable because every minute spent in the Philadelphia office is one less minute of their life they will never get back.

    Pros

    Awesome and helpful developers and engineers with varied industry experience. Very talented and inspiring people who help you achieve the best you can under their guidance. Awesome products lineup will boost the company revenue for sure.

    Cons

    From engineering perspective: There is very little importance given to testing and quality assurance. QA team is very small and needs upgrading and proper training. New strategies should be used to sustain growth probably with use of agile methodologies rather than using age old waterfall model.

    Advice to Management

    Good Job with Sales and Support . Need more investment in engineering especially in testing and QA. If you don't have well tested products you will always get complaints from pissed off customers and probably lose some of them as well.
