Changed into the corporate beast

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kaspersky Lab full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWas a great, fun place to be, has, like all very successful companies, changed now it's entered the big leagues. At the time I was there, a lot of glass ceilings were in place with a preference for promoting HQ staff over regional staff. A wonderful CEO, with a belief and passion for what he does.

ConsPrefer to promote staff from HQ over regional staff. Lack of maturity in business systems to match the growth of the company and client demand. Still lacking in true enterprise scale technologies in b2b market to compete. Consumerized market space and failure to be visionary and act on key opportunities may have killed their chance.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget where you came from and why you became a success

Great product, horrible management, its turning into another SOPHOS unfortunately!

Inside Sales Account Executive (Current Employee)
Woburn, MA

I have been working at Kaspersky Lab full-time for more than a year

ProsSolid product, great potential for capturing more market share.

ConsCompany Lacks Good Management, high turnover, people get laid off without warning and for no particular reasons you literally can go to lunch come back and your coworker that was next to you that morning is gone! Too much instability and stress, everyone feels like they are walking on egg shells which will eventually hurt the company in the future.

Advice to Senior ManagementA company success is not only measured by quota attainment but also its people and their commitment to the cause!

You may reach quota one quarter by squeezing employees and satisfy HQ but the following quarter if you don't invest in your employees and empower them you are back to 0.

Its looks like Kaspersky has been infected by the same SOPHOS management style!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
