    I worked at Prism Microsystems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a small yet cohesive unit of driven and talented individuals. The work environment is informal and diverse, and the company encourages weekly social events in the office. An open door policy helps new hires acclimate to the company' culture, its products and services, and its employees.

    Cons

    Occasionally, the senior management micro manages projects that can get a bit overwhelming. This, however, is true of most boutique, small firms.

    Pros

    flexible atmosphere. Freedom to work hard or not work at all

    Cons

    This place from the day I joined has really been a complete joke. It is like working in a third world country. It is like living in the class system in India. The two at the top think they are the ones who created to world. Guess what guys. You are both have no idea how to run a business. We are not an American based company. Our source code is not developed here in the United States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All people are created equal. You have no higher position in life than anyone other human being. Shame on you both.

    I worked at Prism Microsystems

    Pros

    I did some consulting at Prism for client software training and found it a wonderful place to work. Both owners give you a great deal of independence while creating a collaborative environment to work together. The were lenient with hours and everyone there was super friendly. They were very diligent about keeping everyone in the loop.

    Cons

    None really, would definitely reccomend this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management led very well, just keep up what you're doing.

    I have been working at Prism Microsystems as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    - The work was more hands on than I was expecting. Even as an intern, I felt like the work I was doing was really making a difference.
    - very flexible and understanding

    Cons

    I do not believe there are any cons. You have to work hard like any other job, but the people are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I would give is to spruce up the office a bit. Although, over the years, they have been doing this already.

    I have been working at Prism Microsystems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is marketing great security software. Way ahead from the competition. I started as engineer and soon took responsibility of product management. Learned a lot and progressed a lot. management was very supporting. It is a small company so I could contribute in many different areas. Very family kind of atmosphere

    Cons

    A small company so they are subject to up and down cycle. Only several employees do lot of work. They need to hire more people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great product. They need to get some venture funding to compete with bigger companies. Need more seasoned sales people

    I worked at Prism Microsystems part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great family oriented company to work for. I was offered a promotion after one year of service. Great work life balance. Management trust their employee. There is no micromanagement because they believe in their employees. My overall experience is very positive.

    Cons

    Commuting was an issue. I had to find a job close to home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better communication with your employees. Have a employee's development plan and help employee achieve the goal.

    I worked at Prism Microsystems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    After working for Prism Microsystems for 2 ½ years, I would have to say it is a positive, friendly environment. , the CEO cares about his people, and has a very keen business mind! He and the engineering team have put together the best SIEM solution bar none! It is an environment where you can present your ideas, spar with the CTO, another key ingredient to Prism’s success, joke, and not worry about getting in trouble. The entire team is friendly and get their jobs done. At Prism you have access to anyone without being micromanaged. It is an open door policy at all levels, and the CEO and CTO will often stop by just to say “hi”. I highly recommend them as a family and a company!

    Cons

    Being based in Columbia, MD, they are far from the place I lived and I had a 50 mile commute. Sorry, I just couldn't live in MD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and expand vertical marketing efforts
