    I worked at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are motivated and driven. Management allows flexibility to manage your territory as you see fit so long as you drive positive results, meeting and exceeding sales targets.

    Cons

    The company's focus has since changed in the past few years and sometimes some of the campaigns that were rolled out to the sales team were make work projects. Limited upward career mobility unless you were willing to uproot your family and move.

    Former Employee - Data Entry in Windsor, CT (US)

    I worked at Iron Mountain Inc as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sent there by a temp company. It was good in some ways and pretty close to home. Hours were decent and while no room for advancement into a full time permanent job I enjoyed the data entry and typing while there.

    Cons

    Boss a good person but turned a blind eye/deaf ear to problems including when the issue of staff in that department with trash mouths who were loud and too disruptive for me to concentrate, got to be too much for me. I have since been ostracised simply because I asked nicely to have my seating arrangement changed so I could continue to be as productive as I was before. Just as quickly as when they extended the offer to have me come back, so did they rescind the offer once I re-checked for having my desk moved elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be more beneficial whether it be temps or permanent staff, to enforce a quiet, or quieTER work area. The other thing is, written or not written, policiesx
     such as abiding by the dress code were not always enforced. One time seven years ago I got sent home TWICE to change into another outfit when the same type of outfit was okay another day prior and then all of a sudden became an issue. Even boss does not always adhere to dress code rules. A good pressure cooker for workpmace animosity if I do say so myself.
