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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Abingdon, England (UK)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
