    I have been working at Alert Logic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Alert Logic is a nice place to work - I enjoy the benefits and love the laid back nature of the office. Dress is casual and most people are young or young at heart.

    Cons

    Location is a bit difficult to get to, and the Seattle based office is much nicer that the Houston office. No real down sides though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. The building is looking good; the renovations are really helping a lot. The gym going in is a huge plus as are the locker rooms.

    I worked at Alert Logic full-time

    Pros

    Alert Logic continues to grow year over year. The environment is very fast paced and has a good energy about it. The employee base is full of super sharp people that care about what they are doing. The talent team works hard at making it a fun place to work and they have a very nice gym available to employees. Most high-level execs are approachable.

    Cons

    Some of the sales team has a bit of the good ole boy attitude as do some of the executives. There is a high rate of employee turnover. Some due to salary, lack of appreciation/ promotion, lack of performance.

    Pros

    From a business perspective, it would be tough to find a better company than Alert Logic. Network security is becoming more important to every company in the world and not a day goes by without a major news story on various companies being breached and data lost. This company has products that customers around the world love and it continues to grow at a fast pace. From an employee standpoint, I worked there for about five years. The environment is fast paced for sure; but we were always working to improve the product as well as data to better serve the customers. The CEO and executive team are very strong and focus both on the improvement and growth of the company as well as the development of all the staff. They realize the company's greatest asset is its employees. The offices in all cities are nicely put together to provide for a casual workspace and the benefits are equal, or better, than what I've seen elsewhere in the industry.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, this is a fast-paced company. Change in the world's security environment is constantly changing and the entire Alert Logic team needs to remain nimble and adjust as well. To thrive here, you need to be the type of person that wakes up excited about your job and be willing to work hard, listen and be open to looking at things in a different light.

    Pros

    Ambitious product objectives in a fascinating market; great technologies to work with solving interesting customer and engineering problems.

    Cons

    Entrepreneurial, fast changing environment. Not for everyone. If you thrive on change and creativity, this is a great fit.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course - we are getting there. Double down on our unique industry vision and stay away from the temptation of 'me too' strategies.

    Some micro managing needs to stop. Putting stress to analysts.

    Pros

    It is a quick learning environment

    Cons

    The friend network is strong here. These people are usually hired management level or above and has ZERO experience with the nature of the business and makes decisions that halts the flow of daily business.

    This company verbally assault their employees and females get the brunt of this verbal and sexual harassment.

    There is a reason why the same positions are posted - they aren't growing, it's high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what your employees, the real workers are saying and stop muffling their voices.

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    They actually pay rather well.

    Cons

    Management will consistently change policies(sometimes daily) which leads to a lot of inter-departmental confusion.
    Customers are a second priority to sales.
    Technical ability is not considered an asset.
    Micro-management to the detriment of every person from entry-level to manager.
    The number of bridges that have been burned by this company is making it difficult to find a job with anyone who has ever done business int he past with this employer.
    Management only wants employees who will "stay in line." Anyone who speaks up about the issues they are seeing are fired, typically for some trumped up non-issue. In some cases, they will directly violate state laws to make a reason.
    Morale company wide seems to be circling the drain as the company begins to hemorrhage technical talent.
    The product being sold is barely able to be supported internally as most of the people who knew how any of these third party acquisitions worked have left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Actually talk to your employees. Constantly playing everything so close to your vest doesn't help anyone and is causing a lot of problems on the floor. Actually allow your employees to provide the services you are contractually obligated to give.

    As a woman at Alert Logic, I was harassed on numerous occasions. I complained to HR but was eventually let go by Alert Logic. If you are a woman, DO NOT apply or work for Alert Logic.
