    Pros

    The new management team led by Kris Hagerman (CEO) has been on board for a short time,~3yrs, the team is making significant changes to our 30 year old company, the results have been remarkable. The company is certainly on the upswing and performing very well. New products, investments in sales, engineering, facilities and employee benefits are reenergizing the employees and delivering record results for the company. Sophos has a fostered a hard working, collaborative culture where your input matters. Every employee has a voice to implement change. My time at Sophos has been the most rewarding in my career, simply a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are so many positive initiatives happening at Sophos, life work balance can be a challenge. This is always a struggle with any successful IT company I have worked for in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!! Full transparency to our strategy, strengths and weaknesses will allow us to continue to improve as a company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sophos.

    Interview

    Sent my resume in through a friend on the team. First round interview was simply a coding interview. Two relatively easy questions. I solved the first and he asked me okay, how would you test this?

    Next question I did not quite have time to finish but we chatted about how I would have done it and I thought it went pretty well.
