    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use more common sense when developing new features / capabilities ie don't do the least possible, make features more complete
    Trust people more when they provide advice

    I worked at Radware full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Tend 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 ManagementAdvice

    Spend more resources on market development instead of just pushing that responsibility to the field.

    I worked at Radware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    company 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.

    Cons

    Bad 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Radware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazingly 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.

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Time to leave the company to a real CEO.

    Pros

    Competitive 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.

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Is time to admit it, save talent and leave the company to new and fresh management.

    I worked at Radware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    leave NOW get a better place.
