Pros

Wonderful work environment. People you work with are fantastic. No crazy 24/7 hours, your nights and weekends are your own.

Cons

Management views all employees as pawns to be moved around to projects at will without concern for their interests or skills. They think all engineers are equal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are ruining a fantastic company. Listen to your senior employees and take their advice more often.

    Pros

    RSA Security is a company by techies, for techies. Most of the management has served in a technical capacity at some point, and it shows in the way the company operates. The focus is always on doing what the customer needs done however it needs to get done. This gives you a lot of flexibility to address customer issues and make people happy. There's also a strong focus on continuing training, especially on core skills that enhance your ability to support multiple products.

    Cons

    This is not a company for someone who needs structure and process. The on-boarding process was rocky and I didn't receive much formal training on the product. This is balanced with an expectation that it will be a while before you get up to speed, but this may not work for everyone.

    Pros

    Industry leader, Great products, technology and quality. Some great people working on them, with Incredible depth of knowledge. Excellent industry exposure.

    Cons

    Out of touch senior management, rotating through, problems making acquired technologies work. Sudden layoff purges when plugs are pulled or shifted to Indian office. EMC bureaucracy is slowly ossifiying processes while trying to "fix" things. Never considered for promotion.
