    I have been working at RSA Security full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Many good people
    Free coffee!

    Cons

    Cash cow is dying
    Development is lost, several rounds of management changes have not fixed this
    Culture has reverted to that of a big old slow company, no innovation
    It took a while, but the EMC acquisition has finally brought the company to it's knees
    Rounds of layoffs happening quietly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a plan for the future, communicate and execute.
    Be in a position to FUND the above plan and be prepared for setbacks
    Invest in the remaining high performers, build confidence for the future

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
