    Pros

    Joyful environment, casual and kind of laid back. You will really enjoy your coworkers and the relax approach to day-to-day activities. Some standard benefits if you are single, (i.e. health, PTO). Low number of travel weeks in a year, so it is mostly a regular office work. For security newbies, Tracesecurity is the company. You will get exposure to basic engagements that are still in place in the security marketplace.

    Cons

    If you have to support a family, then the benefits story is different. Health is expensive when you have dependents , no 401k match (which is standard in today's world), and no serious training in the field. While analyst salaries are below the industry average, management get paid for a experience they lack. The company's practices are behind the industry in many aspects (too long to explain here), and if you're an experienced then working for tracesecurity may hurt you. Tracesecurity has a reputation of low quality deliverables and outdated products; just a checkmark for small financial institutions. Some say this wasn't the case in the past. Ironically, Trace exposes you to experienced professionals who don't work for there anymore. Your best bet is to contact former employees that support local security communities and are happy to guide you in your professional growth, or even contact you with multiple job opportunities. The worst aspect of the company is that there is no premium on quality and you have to deal with customers who realize they are not getting value for their money. As many have pointed out, management can barely tell you anything about the security or auditing field. Analysts are left on their own whenever there is a non-standard or complex engagement, or a customer is asking why their flag product does not work as expected. In these cases, your preferred director or VP hides behind the renewal phone call to appear busy.

    Advice to Management

    It is incredible that there is so much disconnection in such as small company. Ineffective communication between departments on work matters a lot. Tracesecurity emphasizes its software business, but in practice is the consulting side that brings money to the table. Customers don't buy the product, they buy expertise.
