    I worked at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is fast pace. You are always learning new things and dealing with challenges on the go.

    Cons

    There is little to no career opportunities. With the way the record management/shredding industry is structured there is not any consistent stream of revenues. As a result, there are rarely any promotions or increase in pay checks. In addition, it results in employees having there career be stagnant and in decline.

    Pros

    Independent work environment. Managers only bugged you if you didn't do your job.

    Cons

    The training was far too long, and mostly self-taught via outdated web presentations. The actual job differed significantly from the job description. It basically boiled down to being a telemarketing position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of a clear view of what you want your employees to do. Some departments are fine, but mine was all over the place when it came to what our responsibilities were.

    Pros

    Not much of an upside. No weekends for the most part

    Cons

    Micromanaged and pay. Room for advancement is minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very little. They say they promote within but all of corporate management comes from the outside.

    I have been working at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (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.

    People I worked with were great and the main reason why I think I stayed, good career progression.

    Selling to internal stakeholders on big deals, loss of direction and risk taking on large deals, processes over complicated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the management were not good at managing or taking ownership. Take more risk and be more flexible to meet market expectations

    I worked at Iron Mountain Inc full-time (less than an 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.
