A place that's willing to invest in its employees' growth

Information Security Consultant (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsEncourages attendance at industry related conferences, obtaining training to enhance skills needed for job, friendly work environment, great location for commuting.

ConsProcesses are hard to get altered with standard bureaucracy and overall it seems that the people are used to being set in the way things get done. It's hard to suggest new ideas and get the right people interested in them. New employee training is standard but could use to be tailored to each organization for clarity as to what is expected within the different orgs/teams.

Advice to Senior ManagementUrge people managers to really care about the progress of individuals on their teams. Progress plans are in place, but seem to be bloated with a lot of company-speak (or maybe they're just to generalized) to make it seem like progress is important.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
