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

    Pros

    Free hot drinks and subsidised food.
    A few clever guys left (simply cruising and taking an average salary). No need to work hard or creative as the Sophos offerings are so far behind the competitors, the engineers don't work hard.

    Cons

    Quality in products is appalling. SMT only present to 'float' the company and bale out.
    Morale sucks and respect for second class SMT members that have joined within last year, is non-existent. There's actually a betting book going round for the next round of downsizing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sorry - there is management in title but not in practice!
    Stop letting good guys leave (somehow), those with decent leadership skills depart once they realise they have been fooled into joining - it's YOUR fault!!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
