    I have been working at LogRhythm full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been with LogRhythm for over 10 years and was recently acknowledged by the C-Level team, and the entire company for this milestone in such a special and kind way. This led me to write a review as I want anyone considering LogRhythm to know that is a GREAT place to work. We've had our ups and downs, especially as of late with Covid but the atmosphere, the team approach and the support my colleagues and I get on a daily basis is worth noting. This industry is challenging and very competitive but the LogRhythm team ALWAYS shines whether it's in product development, sales pre/post and support/services. I have many a customer that rave about how supported they feel by all the different groups at LogRhythm. No matter what we are going through....new software releases or product updates, changes in the industry or Covid 19, we go through it all together. I can't say enough about how important LogRhythm and the people of LogRhythm are to me.

    Cons

    If you want to work for one of the big dogs that CAN'T be nimble, LogRhythm isn't that place. :)

    Thank you for your comments and for your dedication. We have a long standing tradition of celebrating employee anniversaries here at LogRhythm and the Ten Year celebration is a big one. I appreciate you pointing out our happy customers. We are very proud of our customer’s successes with us. We take customer success very seriously and aim to earn their business every day. I also recognize that the pandemic has presented LogRhythm and all companies with a unique set of challenges. We have committed to over communicating, always being present--though now virtually. We are committed to getting through this in a health and safe manner. Very best.

    I have been working at LogRhythm full-time

    Pros

    -When I started, I would have given LogRhythm a resounding 5 stars. I loved everything about the place. Every day was a new opportunity to learn and engage in an exciting environment and product. I believe the overall rating on Glassdoor has dropped a whole point since then, which is very sad to watch, but historically, it is a great company. The founders are still involved and they are great. -The people that work here are pleasant. -We currently get half days on Fridays, but it hardly makes up for recent negative changes. -Flex time off is nice, but not heavily utilized.

    Cons

    I have written and deleted more Glassdoor reviews than I can count in recent months, but it's time to finally hit "submit". For the record, much of this has been brought up by myself and others many times before posting, but nothing changes. Here goes. Recent MAJOR pay and benefits issues. We will see if they get resolved, but hopes are not high. Attrition has been awful and completely unaddressed for over a year. Lies about backfilling positions are common with no delivery. This has led to further attrition as work gets thrown on the plates of remaining employees who are already overwhelmed. This hurts work-life balance and the product as a whole, which is slipping in areas where it used to be very competitive. There are no lateral options for employees suddenly placed in poorly fitting roles to move to areas where their skills and professional interests would be better utilized, which means there are people unhappy on their teams and unhappy with their career paths. No faith that the execs or Thoma Bravo care about this company at all. They've been told over and over and over what is needed to succeed and ignored nearly every suggestion. Middle management gets swatted like flies when they try to improve things. Sales has unreasonable expectations. The culture has slowly been dismantled. I had shreds of optimism for a long time that things would end up getting better here, but... I don't see it anymore. They don't care. They haven't for awhile. This was an incredible place to work at one point, but the ship is sinking. I could have never imagined I would feel this low about a company I once loved so much. To put it into terms that get the point across. LogRhythm used to be Raiders of the Lost Ark, but Thoma Bravo turned it into Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. They proverbially ruined the Indiana Jones we loved in a passionless money grab. I will save whoever normally responds to these reviews a little bit of time if you want to copy and paste the typical response to this feedback. "Sorry you feel that way, but [write excuses here]. We don't acknowledge anything that needs to be improved and will change nothing. Even though this is one of many reviews like this and we hear these things in exit interviews constantly, this is a you problem, not us."

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and I agree that our people are our greatest strength. Certainly, the last 3+ months of a global pandemic and operating largely in a virtual environment has been a big transition, so listening to our employees and being present is even more important now than ever. With that, I’d like to address some of your specific concerns and highlight the many actions we have taken. Employee Feedback I understand you may feel that employee feedback is not addressed, but team members may recall that it was an employee suggestion during an All-Company meeting that we should implement summer half-day Fridays as a ‘thank you’ to the company for sacrifices being made. We acted on the suggestion and it appears to be well received. To address employee questions and concerns after COVID-19 and now with states reopening, we created a work-evolution committee to survey and ensure that we placed our team’s health and safety first. These are some examples to convey that all employee feedback is heard and that it’s acted on when possible. As a current employee, you are aware that I take the time to ensure every employee question and comment is addressed during our company meetings. Attrition and Lateral Moves Any time that we lose a member of the team it hurts. We track this metric closely as an executive team and have active discussions on how we can improve and retain our talent. This includes encouraging our managers to have discussions around career growth, to continuous learning initiatives. Your comment about lateral moves is simply incorrect. We have many examples of supporting employees who want to explore different positions in the company to further their career growth and development. Many of these promotions and transfers happened in the past month. Existing employees are welcome to apply for any of our open positions (https://logrhythm.com/about/careers/). All qualified candidates will be considered. I emphasize that we don’t want to lose a single member of the team and encourage you to apply for internal lateral positions and per our employee handbook. Lastly, Thoma Bravo’s interest in our success is overwhelming and their deep knowledge, experience, and network in cybersecurity benefits us greatly. Running a healthy and stable company is our collective responsibility to ensure the livelihood and wellbeing of each and every LogRhythm employee.

    I worked at LogRhythm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people. LogRhythm started as a very community focused company, and the people remain great.

    Cons

    The company has changed. It is not at all what it used to be. No longer about building a great place to work and trusting the best talent will follow. Sales goals have not been met in quite some time, and its just a finger pointing game of why.

    I want to thank you for taking the time to write a review. I couldn't agree with you more wholeheartedly that the company is all about our great people. As CMO of the company for 7 months, I want to express my disappointment that your experience wasn't where it should've been, and address the concerns outlined in your review for any future LogRhythm marketer. Make no mistake that we are a marketing team in the process of transformation and COVID has only added to the challenge. We're focused on new messaging, our website, customer advocacy, digital strategies, and global alignment with the sales and the services teams. I am personally vested in the growth, learning, and success of every team member. The following changes were made as a result of listening to marketing team feedback: - Implemented Agile Marketing to ensure workload distribution and prioritization. Incorporating daily stand-ups throughout the team and 2-3 week sprints - Manager development through a leaders book club and discussion group - Skip level 1:1s with every member of the marketing team to listen to feedback and career goals - Several promotions and role expansions based on superior performance - New technology to increase collaboration and streamline processes - Move from quarterly to monthly marketing all-hands meetings based on team member suggestions. - More communication and alignment with the sales and customer success team with transparency on all the campaigns we collaborate on. The above changes already produced some recognizable results in a short amount of time. We have more work to do and strive for continuous improvement. Regarding market pay, allow me to disagree with your comment. Through our hiring process and annual salary increases, one of the key factors is a review of market-rate for the role in conjunction with performance considerations. For future marketers - if you are excited by the cybersecurity software space and want to gain a global perspective, embrace change, implement modern marketing campaigns, love data, and be known as a member of a best-in-class team, come join LogRhythm marketing.

    Pros

    Lots of Talented coworkers to learn from

    Cons

    Everything is artificially slowed down. Very process heavy, not agile at all in spite of claiming to be agile. Micromanagement by architects who don’t have any time to spare, thereby slowing down the whole project.
