    I worked at Alert Logic full-time

    Pros

    A number of the people here are excellent, but this has been thinned out considerably in the last few years and this will cease to be a pro in the not too distant future.

    Cons

    - Absolutely abhorrent, clueless management (directors and above primarily, with certain leads and managers also in this category). - The product is a broken, irrecoverable abomination that defies logic at every turn. - The team driving the development of the product are completely clueless and is in desperate need of an overhaul. - Despite this, new 'features' continue to be slapped on in an attempt to check boxes, not to add more value for the customer base. - Direction of the company is devoid of ambition and only focussed on the bottom-line. - A lack of accountability results in talentless individuals maintaining their positions, rather than being ousted and replaced by passionate, intelligent individuals. - Quality employee churn rate is utterly unsustainable and cannot continue to be maintained much longer. - New employees aren't given the level of attention required to flourish and expand their abilities. If you're fresh out of University and looking for a way to kick-start your career, this isn't it, at least not anymore.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Alert Logic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work from home (initially for quarantine, but promises to be mixture of work/home to your desire once quarantine ends) Modular choose-what-you-get healthcare, including dental, vision, life, etc. At least in my department in the SOC, no micromanagement. You're treated like an adult and expected to do your job. Company pays for certs and training

    Cons

    Job title advancement is typically slow. Quickest way to make more money is probably to horizontally move between teams for a pay raise. It's not the path I took, but I've seen others do well with it.

    Pros

    Chill work environment. You can work remote or on site and anything in between. And they also encourage you to be independent (manage your time and no micro-management). You can learn a lot here, it's an interesting sector (Cyber Security)

    Cons

    Salary is barely a competitive one. They still rely on a lot of legacy tech that needs to be supported.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Alert Logic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - R&D momentum is building. Biggest release ever in September. More and better to come. - Next generation platform is the best in the MDR industry. Easy to scale and innovate. Paying off in development momentum. - Clear external focus on customer value, not on internal politics. - Great R&D team with everyone pulling together and a positive, can-do culture.

    Cons

    - Complex to navigate all the requirements and trade-offs associated with MDR. Be prepared to make hard decisions that come with an aggregate technology solution (network, endpoint, log, vulnerability scanning, and WAF solution).
