    Pros

    A great technology company with lot's of upside. The Sales team is treated very well, much like any other company. The company is very top-heavy with executives, as a result, the company grows every year and continues to have a large share of the DC market.

    Cons

    If you're in project management, client services, monitoring center or service, you don't really make much. I've also heard of employees complain about being treated unfairly, which leads to frequent turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of everyone

    Pros

    Good work environment. My superiors are very supportive. I believe that I am getting great experience, which will lead to many opportunities once I get some more years under my belt.

    Cons

    No 401k match. High turnover rate which at times can lead to a heavy workload. Can be stressful at times, although that should be expected.

    I have been working at Kastle Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constantly innovating and is an industry leader. Kastle encourages you to take ownership in your work and rewards those who do. Competitive pay and bonuses. Peers are great to work with. Free coffee (hey, used to work for govt, so I don't take these things for granted). Frequent socials. Opportunities to advance if you are patient and don't demand instant gratification (I have moved from a junior member of the team into management since being with the company under 10 years). Excellent health benefits.

    Cons

    Certain jobs require 24/7 on-call support. Despite company's recent financial success, company still doesn't provide 401k match. Employee experience can vary based on department and manager. Work/life balance can get stretched thin at times

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more encouraging of employees and reward good things done rather than constantly chiding on things you don't like.

    I have been working at Kastle Systems full-time

    Pros

    I really love the people. There is no one specific type of individual at Kastle; the employees are very diverse in both age and background which is great from a learning/growth perspective. There are also people at Kastle who have been here since the company started, which is extremely rare to find these days. This is somewhere that people want to stay and retire. The office culture is relaxed, and the company tries hard to create an environment where everyone can meet and mingle such as Popcorn Fridays, Employee Appreciation Parties, and volunteer opportunities. I also really love the team and department I work with. It's not always about the money, finding somewhere to come everyday where I can do what I love and not hate the people I work with were key and I think I've found that happy medium.

    Cons

    No real cons. The workload can be overwhelming at times but there is a lot to clean up from the previous regime so it makes sense. A 401(k) match would be ideal, especially for a company this size.
