    I worked at SolarWinds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Money is good but it's not worth the mental torture.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Bullying and abuse is the daily routine. Management cant be approached to help with anything. And if you as a question you are told "you should know that" or its ignored as they cant answer. It's a top down structure for abuse. Forget about holidays as there is never the right time. Lunch is actively discouraged. If you take lunch you are told you are not working hard enough. It's the Solarwinds way. If you have any concerns or issues you are told to find a new role as you are not Solarwinds material. Run for the hills if offered turnover is crazy.

    I worked at SolarWinds full-time

    Pros

    Zero. Since you will see the same in any other company.

    Cons

    I wouldn`t believe in all "Good Reviews" written below here. if you want to hear honest feedback talk to former Solarwinds employees, I don`t think that you will hear at even a few good things about them. They will also tell you about some accidents happened in their office which is a result of company behavior and culture. All mid-management doesn`t have any experience in IT outside Solarwinds. Basically Solarwinds is the only thing they know. If you have any experience in IT this is not place for you. Some managers and even high level management are very childish and will do anything to get rid of you if they don`t like you personally. Reacting as a 12 year old child. The reason why they are taking those positions is because they are playing politics and say only what their management want to hear. And because they are acting as a robots and not even thinking what they are doing and why, they don`t have their own opinion, absolutely useless. You will not see there a true individuals. No team work at all. In fact i don`t think they know what is that. If it is your first place of work then it might be good for you. But don`t stay there for too long and look for another opportunities as soon as possible and leave them with their culture.
