I have been working at SolarWinds full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It is a really fast paced company. you will not see alot of sitting around and doing nothing. or working on projects that simply get canceled. the company overall treats employees respectfully. the office environment is not bad at all. the twice a week lunches are OK. the quarterly bonus really helps you keep going vs an annual bonus.

Cons

too much short term focus on stock price. the company is left and right trying to move from one country to an other in hope of cheaper staff.
the company rush into external market does not appear to be exactly paying off.
you will have to report to the right people for your hardwork to get noticed.

    I worked at SolarWinds full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent
    Pay is okay (but not as good as the margins would indicate)
    Free lunch twice per week

    Cons

    Politics have taken over.
    Innovation has come and gone.
    Employee feedback might as well be a punchline to a bad joke.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out. Your ego has taken over what was once a successful collaboration of cross-functional teams.
