    Pros

    Your coworkers are amazing. You can easily make friends and hangout with your peers outside of work.

    Cons

    Senior level management needs work, they have no idea what they are doing and often it comes off like they don't care.

    Alarm.com doesn't offer a competitive salary, or opportunities to grow within the company. I was told many times, "this is the way we have always done it," and never really felt like people were listening to what I had to say or offer.

    There were times when we got extremely busy, and my manager would tell me, "just give a B level of effort on some of those projects and get them done. They don't need to be your best work." I have never, and would never give anything less than my best effort, and to suggest to me to do something like this is a huge insult and just not right.

    Absolutely no recognition for a job well done.

    only 5 days paternity leave....in 2018.

    Insurance benefits are expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better.

    Show that you care about your employees by telling them what that have done right, and celebrating their efforts and accomplishments.

    Update your health care benefits and policies by bringing them to 2018.
