    I have been working at Sophos full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
