      Pros

      The people really make this a great place to work at. There is an emphasis on training and improving already existing skill sets, or developing new ones.

      Cons

      Very fast paced so time management skills are a must. Can be overwhelming at times, but management is good to support.

      From what I heard the place used to be poorly run previously but the new ceo has changed the culture. Good comp and very little micromanagement.

      Cons

      At the whim of marketing leads

      Not the best, not the worst

      Pros

      Good Technology - a known brand globally. Some of the people there are nice and I make some friends

      Cons

      Very mean when it comes to money and rewarding their staff. Sent a selection box and a solarwinds t-shirt for a christmas present, yet staff worked from home without a single 'care' package all year. Management changes every quarter it seems and company direction is all over the place. New CEO has brought all his own people from Pulse Secure and all new hires in management are from their - turning into a job for the boys club - all male hires also. Targets change at the drop of a hat and if you are successful you are punished to keep you down. Metrics are the only thing that matter - i.e. calls/emails etc. and a lot of the Sales managers are Sales Admin and not actual what you'd call a Sales Leader - very uninspiring. Bad reputation with channel partners due to Solarwinds stealing deals of channel at last minute in the past, just to get deal
