    Pros

    Very talented people, good communication, DPI technology, pleasant environment, not focusing on daily basis agenda

    Cons

    Declines with time, company starts to become to large, stocks aren't going well, not enough benefits, no bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits to employees, company feels a bit stingy, unfortunately to them, outside competition on employees is really high and they should think how to improve their employees feelings

    Pros

    Good product and technology. In general the customers see allot as one of the market leaders.

    Cons

    Too centralized management. everything decided by CEO Rami Hadar. In general the culture is that nobody wants to do anything. Sometimes simple task takes very long time. The company is about 300 people, but internal processes and bureaucracy are like in huge concern with tens of thousands of people.

    Advice to Management

    Delegation of authority - allow middle management to take decision related to their duties. Motivate people - everybody asleep there.

    Find new markets or applications for the core technology. Embrace virtualization -quickly!!

    Pros

    Nice company to work for at the forefront of networking technology
    Nice people to work with
    The company has numerous very large international customers and a great prospect for the future.

    Cons

    The company is becoming a large corporation but sometimes still behaves like a start-up.
    It's difficult to get a raise or bonus even though th company has been profitable for a long time.
    Your work becomes your life.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth.

    Pros

    Allot puchased Ortiva Wireless a USA startup. In the end, they took over and made sure everyone totally unstood it was their way or the highway.

    Cons

    Israeli company with a fire you mentality. They will work you till your fingers bleed off and kick you to the curb if you stand up against them. They have no regard for their employee’s and no oversight for what the management is doing or not doing. Our startup in the U.S. was purchased by these guys and they started cleaning house by firing people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember, people are people not cash machines to work to death and then kick to the curb. Oh, and big thank you from the USA.
