    I have been working at Proofpoint full-time (less than an year)


    The company is positioned very well in the market to experience explosive growth in the coming years. Internal career opportunities and advancement are higher than other places that I have worked. The culture is professional with virtually no politics. The pay is also very competitive.


    Really none. If you are looking for free dinner and other perks though like Google, FaceBook, etc., Proofpoint is not for you. This is tightly run company that would rather invest these funds into growing the business and paying employees above average salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I applied online. The manager contacted me directly. He asked me a bunch of questions, about java and some recent projects. At the end, he declared that I was too junior for his group. I asked him why, and he said that I missed on of his questions, and explanation on a previous project was not complete. I've been a engineer for 16 years with a MS. So highly insulting.
