    Pros

    Market leader, great website. willing to buy out anyone who gets in their way!

    Cons

    Iron Mountain does everything they can not to pay their sales force.

    The company also promises things to customers that really do not work. Just look at what they have rolled out in the past 5 years and you will see that. Accutrac, Cloud storage, HR & AP. solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you promise and quit cheating your employees! Focus on more than smoke an mirrors.

    Pros

    Good, smart people, trying to do the right thing. They were trying to solve some very interesting data protection problems.

    Cons

    Senior management that didn't know what to do with technology. And given the nature of the company, they're hesitating to use modern technology (trying to avoid 'fads')

    Pros

    - Great pay and benefits
    - Large organization with many layers and established teams
    - Strong financial health
    - Records management leader

    Cons

    - Industry changing to digital, company moving to REIT focus away from physical storage
    - Middle leadership given too long to fail before changes are made, slow to react, and too detached/oblivious to what is takes to execute plans
    - Operations team not efficient but think they are

    Advice to Management

    Cut out older non-producing leadership who blame lower lever managers for their lack of leadership.

    Pros

    I do love the benefits here

    Cons

    When it comes time for a raise they use presents, like 1 percent of you current salary. That's what I got after a year of work... 1 percent increase.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep your employees compensate them properly.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Had great local leadership

    Cons

    Work life balance is no longer there. Constant change and on going downsizing. REIT status changed companies direction and their customer service disintegrated with all the changes.

    Pros

    Nice, well-meaning people; strong culture of doing the right thing; belief in talent as strategy; strong financial management; commitment to social responsibility.

    Cons

    Gap between intent and execution. Very risk averse; old boy network, especially in the field; too many people who have only worked at Iron Mountain/stuck in tradition; too much DIY for employees to function efficiently (and happily).

    Advice to Management

    Address the "cons." Ask people to help you solve problems, create solutions -- too much input and thinking trapped at the senior level.
