    Pros

    Great place to work and get experience in the security field. Free lunch, company events, and a trip to Israel.

    Cons

    Low pay for the work/stress. Other companies will offer you double what you are making at Check Point after you've been there for a year, and Check Point doesn't care enough to meet even half way to match.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover kills the support experience. After leaving the company and needing to call in for one thing or another as customer, it is painfully obvious that the engineers are undertrained and inexperienced. Usually it is faster to figure it out on your own if you know even a little bit about the product.


  2. My experience was exhilarating both with my learning experiences and with the people I worked.

    Pros

    This company does a great job familiarizing you with all cultures of Check Point to give you the best understanding of their products. Great people to work with as a team.

    Cons

    Upper management should concentrate with appropriate training for all new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Company plans and strives on sales throughout each quarter and should be looking also at how to get to better sales daily.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about security software.
    Great technology company.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management constantly berates you to the point you are unable to focus on job. Focus is on the negative; not what you're doing well.
    Insufficient training - not what was promised.
    Complete work overload.
    Competition has aggressive marketing / Check Point completely misses the mark in this area.

    Pros

    The stock offerings were real and not options so same day sales of vested stock increased my net take home by a significant margin. Those golden handcuffs are the only reason the work there.

    Cons

    The organization is run in Israel. They don't listen to american input.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Senior staff before you lose them all.


  11. Sales

    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies

    Pros

    Industry leading products, security focused, good quality of life with no micro management. Strong presense in fortune 100. Good team mentality on a local level.

    Cons

    Pay below industry standard. Pay structure prevents commission until following fiscal year. Closing a deal does not necessarily mean you'll be paid, othere sales teams can "steal" deals without your knowing or authority. HQ in Israel disconnected from rest of company. Very little spent on marketing products vs competition. No perks or club.

    Advice to Management

    Increase spending on marketing new products. Pay commesurate to industry based on role and promotions. With $1.5B in bank, create sales incentive trip.
