    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Liberty to express opinions on technology and demonstrate the same Pay is really decent. Flexible work-timing, decent leave benefits and RSUs

    Cons

    Lack of better leadership (implies 'lack of better future plans/roadmap", "shaky plans") Partiality between sites, may be due to politics (implies transfer the product dev work from one site to other, even if its doing good) No respect to colleagues across sites (within site, all are cordial and did get along well as ONE team) Communications from CEO KT would be non-helpful to employees, sometimes his email carries religious information, which would sound funny and not nice:-( Local management is also poor overall (except a very handful managers)
