    I have been working at Lumension Security as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small consulting company offers a variety of interesting and rewarding projects which never becomes monotonous or boring. It always feels great to achieve something significant for clients and add value to clients' organization.

    Cons

    Long hours and pressing deadlines can at times be the order of the day. Small organization and contract work does not offer the rich benefits provided to employees of large corporatuions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more staff members and grow the organization

    Pros

    The people here are pleasant and a joy to work with. The building is beautiful and has complimentary soda, coffee, catered lunches every other Wednesday and flexible work schedules. The ability to work on new technologies in engineering is refreshing and allows for professional growth. The new CEO(John Ferron) is very open with as much information is legally possible without being just fluff. This is a huge improvement over the previous carryover CEO from NetMotion. The ability to move up is available for those actively seeking it. New benefits are much better with 401K match and better PTO policy.

    Cons

    A clear vision is actively being constructed for long term growth. Near term future is more clear but that only accounts for the next year. Movement majority of business operation to NetMotion in Seattle has been a tough transition since July 2014 but adjustment is going more smooth lately. New PTO policy is nice but could always be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your existing employees like gold. Be flexible with working hours and dont track time that people are in their seats v. working from home or away from the computer. Get a long term plan established and communicated out. Have more contact from C level executives to employees.

    Exciting, Challenging and Rewarding Work

    I have been working at Lumension Security full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lumension is in an exciting field (cyber security) with some cutting edge technologies that have been rated "visionary" in the Gartner EPP Magic Quadrant for the last four years. A relatively small organization, the work is both challenging and rewarding, with broad latitude for personal growth and initiative. And the global DNA (workforce, sales, presence) of the organization makes for a very interesting and diverse experience.

    Cons

    As a relatively small organization in a very hot space, there is always much more to do than time and resources permit, which can be stressful and disheartening at times. However, this entrepreneurial, "do more with less" mindset has allowed Lumension to compete successfully with the behemoths in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain vision, get focused, be more agile, and execute, execute, execute.

    I worked at Lumension Security full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are absolutely wonderful to work for and with. Free lunches every other Wednesday, free soda fountain/popcorn machine in the break room.

    Cons

    Small company, not much room to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering needs to be held more accountable and pushed harder for deadlines. Perhaps more fresh blood should be brought in to revitalize the ENG department. If you are going to sell a product it should be in full force within your own company and individuals should not have a choice to participate in the using the software.

    Pros

    Great office space. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Appears to be favoritism with regard to raises....has been 2 full years without a raise while others around seem to get them. When you receive meets or exceeds expectation on performance reviews, you expect a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises when/where raises are due.

    Pros

    For the most part it's a friendly environment.

    Cons

    The work can be very challenging at times and the Pay is OK but not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at other departments besides Sales and Engineering - they are not the (Only) employees who drive revenue!!!
