    I have been working at Iron Mountain Inc full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Iron Mountain Inc full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Iron Mountain has good management practices with solid policies and procedures without getting overly bureaucratic. I have been at companies with too little structure an ones with too many. Iron Mountain has the best balance of any company I have worked for.

    Cons

    How will the future of the company change as it pursues a REIT structure? Iron Mountain has had it's share of layoffs in the past and have parted ways with many strong performers.

    Former Employee - Customer Response Representative in Collegeville, PA (US)

    I worked at Iron Mountain Inc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Iron Mountain provides a great training program for new hires in the customer response/issue resolution departments. It is set up exactly how I learn new concepts so it was definitely a plus for me.

    Cons

    Management seems to be pretty strict on the work schedule. I understand this is necessary to service the customers appropriately but allowing a little leniency would be preferred from the employees perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to communication, ideas and suggestions. And please try to work with your top talent on their needs, otherwise you will keep losing them.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits at all levels. Challenging work environment that brings out the best of every member of the organization.

    Cons

    Continuous and unchecked drive for excellence, ultimately destroys morale and self esteem at the base. No effort and/or results will ever be good enough. Cultural willingness to compromise organizational values for profit and perceived performance excellence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing what they have to do in order to ensure higher profits and dividends for their shareholders. That's the American way! Anything else,..it's just philosophical verbiage. Good Job!

    Current Employee - Cdl Courier in Kent, WA (US)

    I have been working at Iron Mountain Inc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a courier CDL B driver, every day is different and challenging. Enjoy working independently. Management very responsive to concerns. Friendly, hard working crew.

    Cons

    Some days are very long. Management in transportation has always had difficulty maintaining a full staff due to turn over. Customer service has always been a problem despite attempts at improvement. Customer service is the biggest complaint drivers receive from the front line customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just to continue working on improving customer service. Just to continue to try to maintain full staff.
