    Rewarding workplace, technically and financially

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsVeriSign is a fun and interesting place to work. As a development engineer, I had a good degree of autonomy. The compensation is good, including bonuses and a very good ESPP.

    ConsAfter splitting off the certificate and PKI business, our mission has become rather narrow. Also, we now are a D.C. - only company without the Silicon Valley connection we had.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReliance on the domain registry business is risky. Diversification is key at this point.

    automation tester

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork with a proud team of industry leading experts. The passion of being the best is clearly evident in many teams day to day operations from marketing to engineering. Benefits are good but changes are underway so carefully assess market benchmarks before making any decision. The core business is strong and resilient.

    ConsStrategic growth needs clarity from management to align roles and responsibilities for all team members.
