    Pros

    - great office
    - challenging work
    - still learning new things
    - rapidly growing company
    - very smart people around
    - career opportunities
    - great management

    Cons

    SolarWinds is a rapidly growing company, which sometimes results in a little chaos. People often change teams (based on current needs), which may not be suitable for everyone, however, they are always asked whether they want to.
    People coming from large companies may find the environment too dynamic and too fast.

    Advice to Management

    Both middle management and senior management is great. Keep doing the great job and do not lower the bar for hiring the best people.
