Good company to work for with a bright future

Technical Field (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPoor 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
