Pros

great opportunity to gain broad experience in a fast growing company. Lots of room to move around and grow across multiple functional boundaries.

Cons

Tough to do so much with so few resources. Really requires a heavy level of engagement and commitment of time and energy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top level management is great, as the company grows it would be great to maintain broad insight into how the company is growing, etc.

    Exciting, Fast Growing Company in Huge Growth Field

    I have been working at Fortify Software

    Pros

    Tremendous growth in application security being driven by the software development industry
    Tremendous independence provided allowing for flexible time management while not sacrificing deliverables and/or client needs
    Highly skilled co-workers who continually impress me and share valuable information
    Unbelievably dedicated supervisor who has "walked the walk" and is a real advocate for his direct reports
    Incredibly motivated executive management team that takes time to talk/listen to those in the field and refuses to "sell out" the company
    At this level, no back-stabbing or politics ... just everyone helping each other for the benefit of our customers

    Cons

    As a small global company, travel demands can be great. In addition, support for multiple global timezones can be an occasional challenge
    Yearly evaluations and compensation changes are extremely erratic or non-existent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to resist the urge to sell out to a behemoth that will ruin our energy level and competitive spirit.
