    Good Place to Work

    May 3, 2022 - Technical Support Representative Tier II in Lehi, UT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The health benefits are very good. They now seem to actually care more about their employees, rather than just saying they do. They have started to put their money where their mouth is, and I believe this is largely in part due to the change in CEO, Sudhakar, really seems to care, and it shows.

    Cons

    There is no profit sharing or bonuses given in stock.

    How many punches can you roll with?

    Pros

    Work life balance was pretty good for me, but the higher up you were in the organization the more that seemed to dissipate.

    Cons

    SolarWinds is like a dinner roll where someone has eaten out the center but the guests haven't all noticed yet. In this case, new leadership are both the person who ate out the center as well as the people who haven't noticed the center is gone.

    Millenial Mayhem

    Apr 19, 2022 - Sales Executive 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great Products in several market segments. Good SE’s , Enterprise Sales Team , CSMs and Marketing. Lot’s of tools and data to leverage and become enabled.

    Cons

    This company has succeded to get to 1B despite a 1990s dyfunctional chaos structure . How the board of directors with has allowed this place to continue to operate without any regional alignment of CSMs, BDRs, SEs, renewal reps together with sales teams makes it impossible to be poised for growth.. So much wasted time and opportunities due to mosh pit management with no alignment. It looks like amnature hour compared to all of its competitors or any 1B software compaany. This place cant attract nor maintain seasoned sales and renewal reps because of its entitled woke millenial culture and unqualified /green sales management that allow the inmates to run the asylum. You have millenials that smart off to anyone they please in email and chats with no reprucussions. These belly aching babies had zero enterprise software before they were hired.
