I worked at Proofpoint full-time for more than a year

Pros

On the cover the story sounds good

Cons

Products don't stand up to the hype. Sales is run by Finance. Leadership is inexperienced. It was impossible to book a deal without going back to the customer 10 times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since most have left the few still there should move on as well. Clean out the entire HR dept. Try to have some fun for once.

    Pros

    Great company, great people! Proofpoint is full of people that are great to work with. The Utah office especially.

    Cons

    Big company, too much red tape. I didn't appreciate the amount of red tape I had to go through to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
