    Pros

    Working with the best and brightest people in the industry, great benefits for a young company and knowing that your co-workers care about you as a person (including the CEO). There's a sense of purpose and unity that is hard to find.

    Cons

    The location may be the only drawback as traffic is very heavy in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and be careful to keep hiring the right talent!

    Pros

    Excellent culture. The people here are smart, fun, caring individuals that are part of making history in the application security industry. Senior management is laser focused on expanding the business, but at a healthy pace.

    Cons

    We are experiencing growing pains, but these are the kind of problems you want to have with your company.

    Pros

    So many :-) - Great people to work with - Nice benefits but the tke-what-you-need PTO makes them GREAT - The little extras like bagels 3 days a week, snacks always available, fresh fruit weekly, etc. - Great attitudes everywhere you look - Exciting future - Still time to "get in at the start" - Clear corporate plan - Willing to try new things and not married to current ideas/procedures

    Cons

    - Some things starting to change toward typical corporate culture :-( - It is a business so there are goals to be reached, no way around this though :-)

    Advice to Management

    - Don't change the important draws. For example, keep the hackathon open to everyone and open to all ideas. Don't change it to require a tie-in to the product offerings. This would ruin the entire program! - Keep the little benefits coming, they make a big difference! - Keep in mind that the pressure to meet the goals rolls downhill (like most everything does). Although it is obviously important, too much pressure will crack more gems than it will create diamonds (and a few diamonds aren't as valuable as a hundred other gems)

    Pros

    Opening up a new market for appsec. Company is market leading in product, marketing, and in the strength of the executive team.

    Cons

    There's a lot to do and not a lot of time. Grown rapidly so some growing pains as the organization matures.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees.

    Pros

    Although growing quickly, Veracode values innovation and strong engineering talent. The Sr. Team truly cares about the employee; with engagement surveys every 6 months they continually communicate the uncovered challenges and how they are being addressed. I feel employees are a valuable asset.

    Cons

    The organization is experiencing the growing pains all face when hiring 150 people per year.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the product, continue to invest in innovation, try not to be bureaucratic as we grow, and continue to invest in and communicate with the employees.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture! Veracode is dedicated to nurturing long and rich careers for its employees. Their standards are incredibly high, meaning hard work, of the highest quality is a minimum expectation, but those who excel here aren't interested in mediocrity, and truly believe we're doing something important, that will change the world for the better--which makes the hard work worthwhile.

    Cons

    With high standards comes high pressure, and hard work. We intend to own the software security game, and that's not going to happen by accident. If you're not looking to push your limits every once and a while, this place probably isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    This company was built on its ability to bring on the best people, and improve at improving. We need to keep a close eye on the threat of complacency, and continue to push hard to innovate and match our huge potential as a company.
