I worked at Verisign

Pros

* Excellent technology exposure
* Great people; strong engineering discipline
* Strong management/leadership
* Supportive delegation-oriented management
* Excellent compensation
* Reasonable work-life balance

Cons

* The occasional overly aggressive sales commitment
* Unclear engineering career growth path
* Some challenges around managing the cross-functional organization effectively

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* Too much divestiture? Shedding some of Stratton's half-baked content plays made sense but isn't shedding security services / identity protection service going too far?

    Pros

    Offers better pay and benefit than comparable companies in the valley.

    Cons

    Too many emails, meetings, and re-visiting decisions rather than actual work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to take more active role in helping employees develop career plans for internal promotion and personal enrichment. Also, need to focus on promoting more effective teams to work smarter instead of harder.

    Pros

    There are a decent number of internal opportunities if you know where to look and build a good internal network.

    Cons

    The company often underinvests in new opportunities and isn't agressive enough against competitors. Many people in the administrative roles are unimpressive and can be difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So long!
