I worked at Verisign full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Good work life balance.
Good pay in the area for a software product company.Cons
Very little growth opportunities. Mostly lateral movements.
People just go around in circles within the different groups in the company since there are not much opportunities within the company. Also not much product company based opportunities within the Reston, VA area, hence people don't leave Verisign but feel "stuck" in their careers.Advice to ManagementAdvice
More aggressive investment needed to fuel growth. Company needs to take more risks. The legal team seems to run the company. Once it goes into the legal "black hole", nothing comes out of it and just delays everything and dampens the enthusiasm to try new things.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
