    I have been working at ESET full-time (More than 5 years)


    There are many things that are really great about ESET. Besides the perks that are listed in many of the other reviews and contrary to some of the more scathing reviews on here I do think that ESET does a good job of taking care of their employees and offering advancement paths. Granted these programs are relatively new, and some departments are still catching up to others but they are moving in the right direction, and leadership is committed to employee development. Overall the people are great at ESET and genuinely committed to the company goals. I would also like to point out that office politics happens everywhere and I have dealt with far far worse in other companies and for far less money and benefits. Bottom line, when I wake up in the morning I do not dread coming to work. I enjoy it, I am excited by the things I do and I am challenged in my role. I could not ask for more and consider myself very fortunate to work in this company.


    Salary might be a little lower than the market but you need to balance this with the benefits and the environment. For me it is no contest. The environment is the best. Communication still requires some work

    Advice to Management

    ESET offers great products and services and there is great potential in the staff. It is important to capitalize on this potential and provide as many development opportunities as possible for everyone.

    Trade Show and Event Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.


    So disappointed in this company and the process. I was thrilled when I was offered an in-person interview over a month ago based on how highly people spoke of this company, on Glassdoor. It was over two hours and I met with four different people. At the end of the interview I was told, with conviction, no matter what, you will hear from us ( within two weeks). GREAT! If I am not the right fit, that is fine, just let me know. It has been over a month I sent hand written notes and followed up with an email. NOTHING! Have the decency for those going through the job process to be up front and let them know. Communicating for two weeks before my interview, having the interview, then NOTHING. I have told a few people and the common response " do you really want to work for a company who is treating people like that"? No, no I don't. I thought so much for of ESET when I went in for the interview. I am so unbelievable disappointed in how this all turned out. Happy hunting, maybe think twice about a company that treats people like this. I feel like I wasted so much time and that is so upsetting.
