    Pros

    The management listens to my ideas and encourage me to make a good job by knowledgeable bosses and reachable but difficult targets. To visit HQ in Spain is always good, the Madrid area as well as Bilbao are beautiful places and the colleagues are fun to be around.

    Cons

    All colleagues at marketing have great English skills. Some of the technical staff should sometimes have a better English level (or a better translator/dictionary).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the customers; they are always(?) right. Fix problems in the products ASAP to keep customers happy.

    Pros

    Working my way through the ranks at Panda Security UK to head of marketing they have given me the opportunity to develop my professional skill and apply them across the company

    Cons

    Office relocate has given me a bit of a commute but Panda offers flexible hours and remote working encouraging work commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether or not you are going to condone the use of the Panda "bear" logo on company branding and stick to it.

    Pros

    I have worked for Panda Security for 7 years in the UK office. It's great to be part of a growing company (30% year on year) and a sales team with a work hard play hard mentality! The product is ever expanding with our focus on cloud technology for AV and RMM.

    Cons

    We're not the market leader with deep pockets for marketing, but that's exciting as we're growing so quickly and ensure our support and customer retention is second to none.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to increase our product portfolio.

    Pros

    - An opportunity to work with several different types of security technologies (software, hosted services, appliances).
    - Core technology concept is sound but requires refinement.

    Cons

    - Management by intimidation and threats.
    - Unclear objectives and market strategy.
    - A weakening base of knowledge and skills. Growing emphasis on getting the quick sale rather than developing relationships. Relationship builders are leaving Panda and being replaced with quick fix artists.
    - Absence of accountability for addressing customer problems.
    - Intiativies are announced but rarely followed through with actual substance.
    - Customer base is disillusioned, the workforce is becoming dispirited and management has become resentful of employees and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Take off the blinders and deal with the situation honestly.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at panda software is that it's a global company. We work with different clients to provide the best possible service and solutions to meet their needs.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at Panda Software is trying to meet the demands by clients. Some clients will expect for the company to get things done on time.

    Advice to Management

    I respect the leadership at panda software, they are heading in the right direction. Goals and objections of the company are well defined.
