    Guidance is a dynamic sales-focused company that treats its people great and customers even better!

    I have been working at Guidance Software

    Pros

    The best reasons to work @ Guidance are opportunity in a field that is unsaturated, the comp plan is aggressive and the solutions are not commoditized. With corporation litigation not slowing down and security only getting tighter, our platform is solid and supports some of the largest global companies out there. Our reputation is a strong sign of our success over the past 15 years...

    Cons

    The only downside of this company is the FSA total is only $3000 in comparism to other company;s where it is @ least $6000.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The presidents club trips are extremely motivating! Would love to see quarterly incentives as well...

    I worked at Guidance Software full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    SF office has a great location.

    Cons

    Management doesn't recognize employees' hard work. The company culture is non-existant, and nobody believes in the product. I spent too many days working late into the night, and never felt like my work was appreciated. There's a real lack of training and professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i can't think of anything that would help management, or they would take seriously.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
