    I have been working at Sophos full-time


    Great benefits with a great work environment, reasonable productivity expectations and work life balance.


    Compensation below market, limited equity opportunity, limited personal growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within instead of hiring external candidates for entry level management positions. Bringing in external people destroys direct contributor morale. Compensation has improved but is not quite at market yet, many direct competitors are recruiting from the same talent pool offering stronger comp packages including equity.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    Three coding questions were given to me over an online ide. The interviewer could only communicate with me through comments in the code. My code was never actually run. The whole process took 45 minutes, throughout the whole process I felt uneasy as I could not compile my code or even communicate effectively with the interviewer. I never received a call back.
