    Pros

    Great career development and career path options. Dynamic, exciting work environment. Solid leadership who communicates frequently and effectively. Great people to work with. Excellent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Most managers are great. Some, however are not! Your team will only be as good as it's leadership...

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to frequently reach out to their employees and to put emphasis on being a coach and not a task-master...the results will be far greater!

    Pros

    Job security, with high floor, and some solid products to sell on the security side. Great place to get introduced to the IT world. Nice to have a gym on site.

    Cons

    Account set can dictate short term success. Job can be dependent on overlays that are slow and lack sense of urgency. Middle management can go "guardrail to guardrail" and overreact.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough accountability by everyone from sales maker to middle management to senior management. Focus more on hiring cerebral workforce not just people that interview well.

    Pros

    Flexibility, great work atmosphere, great benefits. Opportunity to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Pay, Typical corporate America red tape, broken internal process, internal conflict, too many tools, not enough marketing support for the brand

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to keep great professionals you should consider higher pay or annual merits. Holding people for 3 years without a raise is not competitive with current job market.
