    Pros

    Good strong global brand and heritage doing records storage.
    Great place to learn about corporate politics and ineffectual leadership.
    Good people, trying desperately to cover for the businesses incompetence, for tiny rewards.

    Cons

    No vision or aspirations for the business.
    If it can be bungled, it will.
    Still think they understand and play in the space they did well 10-15 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at Kodak to see where you are going, pull your heads out of the navel gazing politics and actually align the business.

    Pros

    Stable company in the sales division, especially on the National and Vertical teams.

    Cons

    Iron Mountain is an Operations company - not a sales company. Sales compensation is clunky and this is not a forecasting/bookings culture. Though efforts are being made to change that, Sales clearly takes a back seat to Ops.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what kind of sales team you want - and if you want to attract and keep strategic enterprise reps - figure out a way to motivate and reward them for their efforts.

    Pros

    Iron Mountain attracts good dedicated people to the organization.

    Cons

    Iron Mountain is not a friendly environment for women and minorities to rise through the ranks. And when women and minorities make it past the glass ceiling, their is no monitoring of the Company's VP leader's disbursement of salary, raises and stock options awards which results in a very uneven pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Do better

    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')
