    I have been working at ESET as a contractor

    Pros

    Location! You can't beat being in Little Italy. Excellent work-life balance. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    You can feel that product development doesn't happen here and there's somewhat a disconnect from the product. Larger company. So it can be slow at times. The culture is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Closer connection with the product

    I have been working at ESET full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits from 401k match to health coverage is great. Love the HR team and really make employees feel at home. Work is interesting and management and VP's are supportive of ideas. Great recognition programs for employees that perform and are engaged.

    Cons

    Big organization can make communication sometimes difficult because the headquarters is in Slovakia and they are on opposite time zones (but that is just the nature of global business and not the companies fault).

    Pros

    Its such a different feeling here than any other job I've had before, in a very good way. The employees are extremely nice and managers are easily approachable and ready to help with any issues you may have. If you want to learn something, they are willing to teach you.

    Cons

    So far none that I can think of. Any issues can be discussed with HR or management to be taken care of.

    I have been working at ESET full-time

    Pros

    Managers and HR understand what I do and how I contribute to the company - and express their appreciation. I respect my direct manager's knowledge of the field, honesty, skills and accessibility. Overall, a great group of people to work with and a great downtown location. Plus, this field (cyber security) is one in which people can continue to learn and grow.

    Cons

    A few people who don't achieve much but manage to stay under the radar and get good reviews cause harder-working employees some headaches and resentment. Also, paths to promotion/raises are unclear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Impressed by company values of giving back to charities and the community. Impressed by thorough hiring process. Recommend supporting sustainability efforts by encouraging telecommuting when possible. Don't be afraid to let under-producers go or at least give them a warning, it would be good for morale.

    I have been working at ESET full-time

    Pros

    Salary, flexibility, truly NICE people! This company takes its employees' happiness and welfare seriously! These guys have figured out that if you treat people well, and pay them above the going rate, you will retain associates and they will work harder for you! Work/Life balance is the best at any job I have ever had in my 20+ year career!

    Cons

    There are a couple of bad apples, but every company has them I suppose. With many top performing employees, it is rather difficult to stand out (but that's a good thing overall, right?).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at ESET full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture in this company is second-to-none. The HR team does an excellent job of keeping employees engaged and satisfied at the workplace. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to join.

    Cons

    The organization is extremely top-heavy, particularly in the marketing department. There are more managers than there are employees, with several levels of hierarchy that makes projects crawl to a snail's pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten out the organization and pay employees at market-rate as opposed to Slovakia rate.

    I have been working at ESET as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a number of things that I appreciate about ESET. Having worked at the company on & off for over 8 years, I really feel like the people that I have had the privilege to work with care about the well-being of their fellow employees & the company as a whole. ESET is extremely ethical and balanced in it's outlook and is continually giving back to the employees and the greater San Diego community. It would be extremely hard to find another workplace with more positivity, energy & balance.

    Cons

    Nothing currently comes to mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for your hard work, support, and vision. Keep it up.

    I have been working at ESET full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Enjoyable company culture!!! ESET values and respects each and every employee. Employees are friendly, fun and hard working. Our product is top notch and always on the cutting edge of technology. ESET also has GREAT benefits! Not only do they provide us with excellent health (medical, dental, vision) coverage at a VERY AFFORDABLE price, we also have an onsite gym with showers, a wellness program that includes yoga and other fitness classes during lunch, daily fresh fruit and coffee, company sponsored runs, ping pong and video games, corporate massages once a month, 10 paid holidays plus 17 days of PTO your FIRST year, a 401k program with match and company sponsored events (picnics/parties). Another great thing about ESET is the involvement within the community and the focus on philanthropy. We participate in many philanthropic events throughout the year, from teaching under privileged kids how to surf to donating gifts to families in need so everyone has something to open during the holidays. The salaries are competitive and when you add in all the extra perks it really sets ESET apart from the competition and reiterates why it’s a great place to work!

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer employees great benefits and a fun company culture as ESET grows.

    I have been working at ESET full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits such as insurance and 401k. We are spoiled with all the perks like, fresh fruit daily, gym onsite, monthly massages, company outings, free parking and commute. A place that cares for its employees well-being.

    This is company on the breaking point for explosive growth. I am extremely excited to be a part of it.

    Cons

    As with every organization, ESET is always looking for ways to improve. I would like some more career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we grow make sure our values and culture remain as true as possible.

    Pros

    It's obvious the company cares about its employees- the perks, benefits, work/life balance, engagement in the community, philanthropy, etc... Awesome location in Little Italy... Excitement and growth of a younger company with the stability and support of one that has been around for a while.

    Cons

    Compared to other tech companies I've worked for, I have no complaints.
