Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Sophos full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Some good people on team - 9-5 job

Cons

- Bad vibe - 20-30% lower pay then average - Not a career but just a job

Advice to Management

Pay people and they will stay. Sales targets are way out of reach. Good sales people will leave.

    Pros

    No micro-managing - they allow you to do your work your way, as long as you get it done well. Great benefits Lots of options for training - they provide online training and industry recognized certifications that you can take - all paid for.

    Cons

    Limited options for growth - while the company does allow you to grow, and encourages it, the options of what to do are a bit limited. And while you have a lot of options for training, not too much time is given to actually train.

    I worked at Sophos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice building Low pressure Good work/life balance (most of the times)

    Cons

    No raises or promotions, you have to apply internally to get a more senior position Ridiculous benefits (one free pastry OR a fruit - wow) Really high turnover Weird software architecture ideas (use emails instead of a message bus or databases). Low salary

    Advice to Management

    You are a software company, and should have a strong technical hierarchy within. The company is ruled by layers and layers of (poor, unproductive) managers. Think about what other software companies can achieve.
