    Pros

    SafeNet manages to hire the best of the best. Professional courtesy and sound judgement accompany your daily business interactions. A great group of people focused on making a noteable difference in the world we live in today. We make a direct and very profound contribution to our nations homeland security and I for one, am very proud to be part of this orgaization.

    Cons

    It would be nice if there were an onsite cafeteria, there are limited options for grabbing lunch anywhere nearby, without having to travel to the mall. But many of the employees actually travel to Torrance to take advantage of the labs down there, so it's probably not economical for them to consider that option at this point in time.

    I have been working at SafeNet full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive salary, provides technology required for a positive work environment (multiple screens, good headset etc), most people in senior management have a pretty good head on their shoulders. Matching RRSP contributions.

    Cons

    With certain divisions of the company we are victim of our own success. Product growing without required experienced employees to support them leads to negative customer impact. CAN benefits are very weak. Large company attitude with lots of 'red tape' to break for simple solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on top of issues. Work amongst each other to create greater communication. Stop with the 'pass the buck' attitude and take action to resolve issues. Get rid of SNo. It's very difficult to find information and here is no standard nomenclature or policing of it.
