    Disorganized approach to market

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProducts are pretty good, good engineering and pretty low failure rate. Pricing is competitive although complex.

    ConsTend to sell features they haven't really fully vetted to "test" the market... beta testing is almost unheard of.
    Support can be spotty.
    Marketing is almost non-existent - as is business development and as a result brand recognition is poor ( in the US) so lead generation is appalling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more resources on market development instead of just pushing that responsibility to the field.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hacktic to work in, OK in compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)

    Proscompany is OK on compensation when calculating both salaries and stock-option values.
    company does a lot of Internal promotions, sometimes of not fully qualified people.

    ConsBad internal communication culture bordering in abusive in some cases, especially between sales and HQ.
    bad on delivery dates and road-maps - company continuously changes plans and deliveries to accommodate special deliveries for specific customer demeaning a unique feature.

    Advice to Senior Managementimprove employees affiliation to company, as most keep coming to work only for the stock-options they hold.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    In need of a leader

    Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsAmazingly enough, there are good talented people in this company (other than upper management) who work very hard and care about each other. But eventually the good talent leaves as the company and CEO care less about employment retention. Good technology and R&D team in HQ. Ok Salary, poor benefits.

    ConsLack of leadership and mentoring - just a micro manager leading the company. Day to day strategy, no long term commitment to partners. Deal by deal sales base organization. Lack of employment retention culture. Management love to create internal competition amount - no loyalty amount peers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime to leave the company to a real CEO.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lost without direction, strategy and plan to retain good employees.

    Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsCompetitive products - name recognition in the industry. Good amount of great talent and hard working people int he company. You can draft your own business and execute it.

    ConsLack of a consistent strategy and vision and lost of talent due to poor leadership. Very little concern about employee retention. Marketing is lost due to poor management direction. Everything is micromanage by the CEO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIs time to admit it, save talent and leave the company to new and fresh management.

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

    The worst mistake of my life was to work in Radware

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)

    Prosother then some interesting technology they do use there is nothing good to say about radware, any else will be plain sugarcoating a carcase.

    ConsIt starts from the moment you open the door and feel a heavy feeling setting you on making you feel that "one more day full of "joy" is starting again".
    and it keeps going by having a team leader doing every thing in his power to fish out every little mistake you do and parade it to your face and then run to his managers to tell how bad one is, and it's nit picking from telling one guy next to me that the test he writes are good and then complaining to me about spelling - and when i review the other test cases i fine they are full of spelling mistakes but i got berated for it and the rest not a word, and it keeps going for downing every idea you have for imprudent and upgrade.
    if Radware were the last place to work on earth i rather die then work there again.

    Advice to Senior Managementleave NOW get a better place.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
