Growing team, tons to learn, and taking the initiative along with hard work is rewarded. Everyone from the CEO down are ready to coach, mentor and advise, i was there for nearly 6 years and professionally as well as personally, the family atmosphere is very nurturing. That said, I was in sales, and like most companies with rapid growth, things change very often, so if you are not up for new challenges and want to earn more and try harder, this is not the spot for you. They want their salespeople to learn the territories as well as gain technical depth, so although formalized sales training is not routinely provided, mentoring, coaching and in-depth technical training is, from the engineering resources. Management is generous with simple human courtesies like holidays, family time and Christmas bonuses, the little things that impact employee satisfaction greatly.
Decisions are very secretly made, which fuels a rumor-mill mentality- this is sad, though to be fair, management never has devastating surprises or is unfair to the employees. The culture is very much however of quick decision making, hence discussions on strategy tend to be very much had behind closed doors.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at CyberArk in October 2013.
Typical of most companies, this company likes to start out by having you waste time with HR while she drones on about the company and its products (most information you can read about on their web site). She called 15 minutes or so late and I was pressed for time, so I cut her off and asked what exactly is expected of this position. She was miffed and asked if I would like to continue to hear about the company's mission. I stated that due to the late start and an upcoming meeting I had to attend, I had to cut to the chase... As I expected, the position is referred to as "manager" but is really a lead systems engineer position (mostly hands on). Not sure what its like to work at this company, but in my opinion, any company that starts you off with HR is already down for the count. All the best jobs I've had in my career were companies where the first person I met or talked to was the hiring manager. What does HR know about how to screen an IT position anyway? Can she ask if you've ever restored an Exchange database or moved operations master servers in active directory? Why do companies let candidates anywhere near HR in the very beginning?
- None. I cut her off when I realized the job was improperly titled. I advised her to change the title of the job and she would get candidates who fit the role a bit better. 1 Answer
