its OK!!
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Cork3 April 2018
Great work colleagues but overall not a great place to work. No one seems to stay all that long and nobody seems to like the company. I never dread work but I havent warmed to it either. Get in and get paid :)

Good culture, great products, and great customer base.
Marketing Department (Former Employee) –  Austin, TX28 March 2018
I worked at SolarWinds for almost three years. It is a sales based company, so you are encouraged to work fast and meet challenging deadlines. The culture encourages taking risks, however, assuring that failure is okay, so long as you fail fast and move forward.
Pros
Good culture with close-knit teams.
Cons
Management can at times get in its own way.

Would not recommend
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UT20 March 2018
Would not recommend SolarWinds. The clique culture and poor management along with the stress is not worth it. Management only cares about bottom line, you are nothing but a number.
Pros
Free food
Cons
poor management, stress, volatile.

Na
Strategic Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UT28 February 2018
NA I don't really care to do this, I didn't enjoy working for a company that dropped new products on the reps often, changed the way the structure and territories are laid out, and can't get high level personnel to relate to any employee

Stressfull Poorly Managed
Account Executive/Strategic Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UT11 December 2017
Solarwinds is a company with great potential if Management was able to properly train and develop their sales organization. Senior management from Director up are scrambling to hit impossible goals and they in turn put impossible pressure on their employees.

Your achievements are infrequently recognized with cheap gimmicks and you are constantly pressured no matter how well you are doing.

IT department and corporate atmosphere has become cut-throat & toxic
Lead Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TX5 October 2017
Prior to its privatization in 2016, it was a very relaxed work environment with trust between managers, leads, and subordinates.
Also, promises to employees seemed to be kept much more commonly.
Since the privatization, nothing promised by executive leadership or management was honored. New director in IT department has fostered an extremely toxic work environment by spreading distrust amongst managers and engineers and constant micro-management of menial tasks. The systems team under the new IT director lost more the 50% of its personnel in the first 2 months after the direct was placed in that position.
Pros
Free Lunch twice a week
Cons
Micros-managing supervisors, toxic untrusting environment, broken promises

Not the best place to advance your career
Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TX4 September 2017
Get in, learn, get out is what most young professionals tell one another when they ask what it's like at SolarWinds. Unless you have attached yourself to one of the executives or senior management, you will not get very far and you won't be paid very well. They hire from the outside and rarely promote. If you do manage to find a manager or other leadership you like, they will likely not be there that long either.
Pros
Free lunch twice a week
Cons
Culture is harsh and very ADD

Depends on your team
R&D (Current Employee) –  Austin, TX3 August 2017
Unfortunately, it's not all what you make out of it. Some teams have better management and team culture than others.

As typical with enterprise software, the pace is fast. Sometimes it feels like every project is running over time.
Pros
free lunches
