A company just like any other, but with cheap benefits

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVery smart people. Interesting projects, if you're into forensics. Nice location.

ConsDeep hierarchy. No career plan. Extremely hard to get promotions. Politics everywhere. You are valued by "how serious and boring" you are, not by your capabilities. People are fired all the time, no one is safe, normally because the person disagreed with her boss. So you'd better agree with your boss and do as it was said. Benefit package is low grade.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop piling managers on top of managers. Stop firing people for disagreeing with their bosses. Provide better benefits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lack of ethics

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Guidance Software


    Pros: It's a good place to start if you are out… Cons: Agreed with most of the posting about the company. In a way, it's your typical corporate environment. Sr Directors will throw you under… Advice to Senior Management: Resign from your position and bring in real management. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
