Work here at your own peril. Company is imploding.

Pros

There are some very smart and good people working at WhiteHat - just not in management. There are always snacks available in the break room.

Cons

Employees are not valued. Management sees them as disposable. No career advancement. Micromanaging like I have never seen before. Employees are either layed off or quit, those left walk around on eggshells. No one is having any fun. Management is arrogant yet incompetent with no sense of direction and no one knows where the company is going or how to get there. If you take a job here, you will likely be looking again in 4-6 months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Complete overhaul of management is needed in most areas. Employees should be valued and respected. Figure out where the company is going and communicate it. Put a plan in place to make it happen.

    Pros

    The technology is an industry leader, period. There are many good and smart people working for WhiteHat Security.

    Cons

    This company is tainted with poisonous politics all the way from the top of the ladder down to the bottom. Negativity, lies and gossips run this place. Many are fearful for their future in this company. There are no clear business directions for WhiteHat to succeed. People have lost trust due to lack of leadership. Many good employees who've helped build an industry leader technology are gone. Maintaining good, talented, and passionate employees is a continual challenge for WhiteHat. People are not respected or valued at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs new leadership in order for it to be saved from further destruction. They do not know how to run a business. This company is in desperate need to be saved from crumbling down because there are so many broken pieces in every department and lack of support.

    Pros

    This is a great place to coast for a year until they figure it out. Always have a backup plan.

    Cons

    Management is clueless about what goes on with support, engineering, and sales. All of the departments are fiefdoms. The primary concern of the executives is maintaining their status within the political structure. The software is so bad, they need an army of people to support it. The euphemism is "software as a service". They do not deliver on their service level agreements with customers. They spend money like drunken sailors on internal meetings and boondoggles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Total restart. The board of investors need to reclaim this company and prune the entire sr. management team. Put it to sleep by cutting the staff and spending by 80%. Provide excellent support to only the top customers.
