    I have been working at Unitrends full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The resurgence of the company has been fantastic to see: a new leader who has set a clear vision and values and who leads by example every day; a product set that leads the industry; employees who are committed to their work and to working as a team; and a new mantra that encapsulates everything: Win the Day. At Unitrends we focus on small, incremental wins and making ourselves better every day. Some days it all comes together in a big, transformational win, some days we end flat and then figure out how to dust ourselves off and come back fresh the next day. But we all know that we can propel Unitrends to even better results and make it an even better place to work by committing to ourselves and each other that will we push for the win. Every day.

    Cons

    Like all companies, we have our challenges. Primarily, we have many areas for improvement and not an unlimited budget. So it's all a tradeoff: do we want more employees to lighten the workload; a larger 401k match; cheaper benefits; higher compensation? It's a constant balancing act that the leadership team deals with every day but they are committed to doing what's best for the company and the employees.

    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.

    Unitrends has a great culture with lots of really positive people that want to make the company the best in the industry. Product is awesome!

    sales focused, machismo culture, culture of shaming vacation or sick days, past of out of touch management

    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.
