      Pros

      Some great people to work with. Good banter. Free lunch a couple of time and close to Mahon Point for shopping on your break. Very generous with bonuses and acknowledge the work you put in. It's a job where you get back as much as you put in

      Cons

      It can be stressful at times but thats just the nature of the job

      Pros

      There are NONE!! If you want to call some dogs dinner on a Wednesday (Free lunch) a pro then be my guest, but I wont. Biggest pro of all, is there is other BETTER jobs out there that pay more & treat you a billion times better. **IF YOU ARE READING THIS & ABOUT TO ACCEPT A JOB OFFER FROM SOLARWINDS, DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**

      Cons

      Management are brutal Directors are Brutal Micromanagement Unrealistic Targets No time off Made to feel like a piece of meat. Biggest Con of all, is knowing some other poor man/woman will be sold a dream in this dump & they will have to figure out quite quickly that what they have been told is all lies.

      Pros

      Great office culture, fun to work in SolarWinds, learning new technologies, Stock units, free lunches, multiple social clubs, nights out, free lunches on Wednesdays.

      Cons

      Employees should be sent for external training & career path need to be defined so employee can stay focus and kept thinking that what he is doing is still meaningful for him & for the company, other then that I don't see cons in SolarWinds.

      Pros

      The commission rocks here and my monthly take home pay is on average EUR1000 more than other companies. In my view Solarwinds is the best sales job in Cork. Not saying it's an easy gig but this is the New York of Inside Sales and the place you gotta prove yourself in if you want to be the best. Company gym. Free soft drinks, confectionary, hot beverages and yoghurts. Free lunch Wednesdays. Free coffee Friday. Cash spiffs. Subsidized cinema tickets. Nice location/office/business park. Sound management and work colleagues... the people here really make Solarwinds! They know how to celebrate, and company nights out involve plenty of drink vouchers.

      Cons

      Even though all good sales people get a buzz from being outside their comfort zone, sometimes there's a tendency by management here to try to speed up the sales cycle when a considered approach might work better in some cases. That said they give very honest feedback and you learn quickly in this environment!

      Pros

      free lunch twice a week

      Cons

      not interested in the people, board level makes money but thats about it - very heavy handed when it comes to Staff - leave and we will take legal action type set up, so staff are always watching over there shoulders - spent 2 years and best decision was the day I deciðed to leave

      Pros

      A wonderful workplace where you can learn a lot; get your hands on the best tools and technologies to advance your skills. Stocks, Free lunches, headquarter visits if you are outside the US.

      Cons

      The process could be slow considering it's a large company where the approval of tasks has to go through different stakeholders and teams.
