Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

It's relatively stable and growing.
Office location is pretty good.
Job is kind of interesting.
Gives opportunities to students.

Cons

Salaries are beneath market.
PCs used for development/testing just suck.
Working environment is noisier than you'd expect.
Overtimes aren't paid.
No work trips ever unless you're manager.
No educational programs or conferences.
Some technologies are way outdated.

Advice to Management

Provide sufficient PCs for developers/testers.
Put up employee salaries at least to the market level.

    Pros

    Very smart, savvy senior management.

    Cons

    It's all a margins game. SWI is ferociously talented when it comes to making profit. But the pace and velocity that requires often sacrifices sound planning and sanity.
