I worked at Guidance Software full-time for more than a year

Pros

SF office has a great location.

Cons

Management doesn't recognize employees' hard work. The company culture is non-existant, and nobody believes in the product. I spent too many days working late into the night, and never felt like my work was appreciated. There's a real lack of training and professional development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i can't think of anything that would help management, or they would take seriously.

    Technical direction is top down via CTO. His word is God and everyone too scared to disagree.
