I worked at Guidance Software

Pros

Good location that is easy to access.

Cons

Interviewed and hired for one job, but was told to do another. Hired as a consultant, but expected to stay at location whether there was work or not. There tended to be groups of friends that advance each other. Clients were taken from people to lure new employees, which effected current employees base salary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company is not run professionally. It is time to seriously address this issue.

    I have been working at Guidance Software

    Pros

    The best reasons to work @ Guidance are opportunity in a field that is unsaturated, the comp plan is aggressive and the solutions are not commoditized. With corporation litigation not slowing down and security only getting tighter, our platform is solid and supports some of the largest global companies out there. Our reputation is a strong sign of our success over the past 15 years...

    Cons

    The only downside of this company is the FSA total is only $3000 in comparism to other company;s where it is @ least $6000.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The presidents club trips are extremely motivating! Would love to see quarterly incentives as well...

    For the most part, it was just okay. Although, many days were just down right difficult to muddle through.

    Pros

    The people! You spend a lot of time with your colleagues and this company has quite a few great and talented professional people.

    Cons

    Mgmt is not really honest and trustworthy. You will spend a fair amount of time covering your rear so that your immediate manager doesn't throw you under the bus because they don't understand how a process works (although you've explained it time and time again). And, they will not apologize for being wrong. Owning up to your mistakes is a vital quality trait that is lacking at Guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is too top heavy. How many VP's of sales does one need? That money should be put to better use for the indians who are truly behind Guidance's success.
