    I have been working at Unitrends full-time

    Pros

    I recently joined Unitrends and have immediately found it a place where alignment and collaboration are just not given lip service. The management team really seems to be on the same page and try to be as transparent as possible. Lot's of energy on the sales floor. Company is set up for growth this year.

    Cons

    Company is split between 2 operation centers - MA and SC.

    Pros

    Great perks and very friendly employees great product

    Cons

    Communication between departments and QA of the product needs more review as too many issues are getting through to the customers.

    Advice to Management

    too many issues are going through with the agent based backups and QA needs to push back more to development. Improve communication and flow between departments.

    There are so many dedicated and passionate employees. Everyone works hard to satisfy customers and deliver a great product. Those that have passion and a good work ethic will thrive and grow.

    Pros

    Unitrends is a great company to work for. The product group is a very fast pace environment but exciting to work in. You get to learn every dimension of how an organization is ran. Also if you own a product you are given the responsibility to run it like your own.

    Cons

    If you like having a lot of responsibility - there isn't any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency

    Pros

    Good people are key to any great company and Unitrends has great people. I sincerely enjoy the people I work with. If that wasn't enough, the technology is also top notch.

    Cons

    Sales direction and overall leadership has lacked, but there's sunshine on the horizon. After a series of changes and restructuring, Unitrends is headed in a positive direction again.

    Advice to Management

    The new focus and emphasis to succeed is good, but trust your employees and don't micromanage. This is a good way to lose the best of them.

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment where you can turn ideas into action. You are not constrained by bureaucracy. The leadership communicates openly and has fostered a can do culture.

    Cons

    The pace of the company is frantic and not for the weary. The frequency of some of the changes created instability.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving the company in the current direction that you are. Don't forget to celebrate successes along the way. Win the day!
