I have been working at Proofpoint full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The company is stable. The top executives have been prudent. Lots of technical innovation.

Cons

The financial prudence of the executives means benefits and perks are modest. As a pre-ipo employee, I expected to share in the growth and success of the company. I have not. Although I anticipate good growth for the company, I don't anticipate benefiting from it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Poor recognition and reward of employees destroys the fiction that there is a "Proofpoint Team." Oh, and don't tell us what is good for us as shareholders when most of us have a share of the company that is so trivial that the stock price could go up %100 and we would hardly notice.

    Pros

    Decent location near 237 & 101

    Cons

    Micro-management, The managers are unfair and treat employees with no respect! The product is a commodity. High turn-over because the moral is terrible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat employees with respect and realistic expectations to keep employees from resigning.

    I have been working at Proofpoint

    Pros

    They are very reasonable when time off is needed. The company is progressing nicely with new technologies. There is a good work environment with good people. The Draper area is very nice would be a great place for someone to live as well as the surrounding areas. The people I know in the company are good at helping you succeed and learning your role in the company.

    Cons

    I'm part time so I don't have much insight into benefits/compensation and how good or bad that is. There are some minor inconveniences with the network and the different passwords we need. But that comes with the territory of being a threat protection, compliance, archiving & governance, and secure communication company.
