    I have been working at TraceSecurity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many others have mentioned the joyful environment that workers have in the company. It is actually a fun job that allows inexperienced professionals to take a step into the security field. Who does not want to break into a network and pose as a pest inspector and wander around? Those are the perks of being a pentester and a social engineer; perks that you find in any company that performs this type of engagements.

    You also keep your hotel, miles and rental car points, which is also standard in the infosec field. So they are not really differentiators if you get the same in other security companies.

    Being a small company the medical benefits are decent; you get your health insurance at a very very low price (if you are single). Although the work requires you to travel, it is not as bad and you can actually stay in the office more than 50% of the time.

    Cons

    Now the bad part. If you really are an experienced infosec professional, Tracesecurity is not your company. First, salaries are below the market. Analysts, even those with short experience, are just quitting to go into other security companies where salaries are higher. And the difference is not only a few points, we are talking about a 30% -50% factor (and double in a couple of cases). In fact analysts who have fled to competitors get a compensation that is too high compared to what you can get in Tracesecurity.

    This is a wave, and at that pace no one will stay here for long.

    You would say, well Tracesecurity is a small company and can’t have that luxury. Well, the analysts leaving are also going to small companies, and that proofs that the company is not doing something right. It just can’t keep its personnel.

    Now the few ones that are staying (including me) are just waiting to get the call from other analysts who are recruiting. But be careful saying where you’re going.

    Second, experience professionals were constantly overworked and their experience and judgment questioned. The result: all of them left.

    The field is very hot right now, and unless you’re unemployed or don’t know about security, you better look for another company.
