    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Secureworks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company preaches culture, it's a great atmosphere, A lot of people doing what you do, always have someone to talk to about a challenge or to celebrate the little wins.

    Cons

    Commission is partially tied to outside seller's commission. if you want to be promoted your seller is the only way you learn that job, but you have no input into your seller or territory.

    I worked at Secureworks

    Pros

    They will hire just about anyone at this point and give nothing but false promises and lie about your potential compensation. If you are connected to upper management or get "tapped" then you will do well.

    Cons

    Nepotism does exit here and it's a growing business. You have unethical management that blatantly break the company's policies. Capped commission for inside sales people but not for outside. Less than 4% of internal candidates get promoted each year. Work life balance is skewed because although you get an hour for lunch, they expect and even tell you to eat for 10 minutes and get back to work. Earning potential is nothing but false promises due to shady leadership and clawbacks. They claim culture eats strategy for breakfast but clearly someone pissed in their coco puffs. Culture is nonexistent, especially with the company trying to go public. Upper Managements Moral compass is upside down at best. Client issues are at an all time high due to lack of execution and this years GMQ displayed the negative impact on the ability to execute. The company as a whole is not all bad, but the problem is that they are trying way too hard, getting way to desperate, and completely loosing that vision they had 16 years ago as a sacrifice to make more money. I will leave you with this...if you like to control your destiny and your career, this is not the place for you...here is why...you can come in, do all the right things, exceed all expectations, and unless they hand pick you - you will not have a fair and equal opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You have so much at stake here and you are throwing away what once was a great company. TW you should really look into the nepotism thing because it is more prevalent than ever. You should also talk about ethics with management, not just tell them to tell the employees when to say it.

    I have been working at Secureworks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are a leader in the information security industry specifically the managed security sector.

    Cons

    Advancement in the organization past that of first level management is nonexistent for African Americans. Current systems keep those positions alway from people of color. Discretionary processes allow a small fee to limit the advancement of people of color.

    Advice to Management

    Install checks and balances so that you don't lose good talent because a few racist individuals.
