    A political environment reminiscent of the Soviet Politburo

    Technical Sales Director (Current Employee) Reston, VA

    ProsComp package was good. Flexible tele-commute policy, ESPP and time off all positive.

    ConsAcquisition integration plan pretty weak with much confusion and hilarity the norm. As the product portfolio expands there doesn't seem to be an effective method to ensure the sales team embraces the full scope of offerings. Significant competition internally just to get sales teams to focus on different products and many groups within the company are cliquey. As mentioned in multiple other posts, there is a constant fear of RIF that permeates the workforce.

    Advice to Senior Management360 Degree Review for your Director and above leadership might help pinpoint some of the shortcomings. Leadership team should have bonus components tied to favorable employee feedback.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stable and Steady

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Reston, VA

    ProsOne of the leaders in security. There are some good people you get to work with and most of them care about the quality of product

    ConsMost of the action is at the main office and in a satellite office you tend to be a bit disassociated with the rest of the company. It is mainly a sales driven company and not an engineering driven company
