    Great benefits and fun work environment. I love working for Product house in QA. Exciting new products are about to hit the market so fun times ahead. lots of vacation time and flexible work schedule

    Cons

    No cons to speak of. Product house is a great well run dept with excellent leadership and co-workers fun to work with. No complaints. maybe more promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and promote more from within.

    Pros

    Verint is mature but has some of the feeling of a startup. The software products are of high quality and are used by many big, well known companies successfully. The employees are highly skilled and generally work together well.

    Cons

    The teams are chronically understaffed, which makes it hard to complete work and maintain top quality; Various issues have led to a long delay in the release cycle. Employees work with antiquated tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to get the job done with top quality. Invest in the latest tools to make work more efficient. Put a little money into employee programs.

    Pros

    Lots of middle management in constant meetings

    Cons

    You simply cannot make money in sales at Verint. Commission rates are tiny and quotas high. Ask them to show you a copy of comp plan and how many reps are making their number. This company has moved to a bottom line company that isn't concerned about top line. It's all about expenses, cutting costs, cutting commissions. No concern whatsoever for customer satisfaction, just how to get another dollar out of them. Really sad that they've gone so far down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need leadership that has concern about customer satisfaction and doesn't mind paying for top performers. Otherwise sales talent will continue the exodus.

    I worked at Verint Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A software leader in an emerging space. The vision is compelling. Building a portfolio of products. Good pay.

    Cons

    Poor execution from sales, HR processes systems and training, acquisition integration (everyone leaves), and product development (causing unhappy customers). Benefits are minimal and investment in people is also very minimal. High turnover in leadership and sales and growing in professional services. Problems in software sales execution (leadership??).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Substantial turnover. Management needs to address the reasons why there is so much turnover. (see cons). Invest in your people.

    Pros

    You do get a company lunch on Wed. Outside of that I am not sure what to write.

    Cons

    This place is ran by a bunch of rookies that have no leadership skills and have no idea what they are doing it is a $1B startup. Everyone at the ground level is held extremely accountable but no one else above them. We burn our customers every few years with our product role outs and the only one who pays the price is the field. Rumor has it that the new 11.2 release is a MAJOR upgrade and suppose to be worst then the 11 upgrade so be prepared. It should of been a 12 release but they don't want to scare people. The sales people are great but the GM is full of himself. He is always sending out rah rah news letters and treats everyone like they are idiots and bad mouths about his entire team to each other. They ask employees to go into Glassdoor and post POSITIVE reviews and follow up with certain employees to make sure they have. So if you are looking at this company ask the person hiring you if they have been asked to post here. I would look at other companies with better leadership, infrastucture and support and run from this one! If you do go work here be prepared to be treated as if you are an idiot and for the executieves to talk bad about you every chance you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being accountable as well and stop blaming everyone for your mistakes. Stop bad mouthing employees and try to release some good products that don't upset every customer out there making the feet on the streets lifes impossible. I would also fire some of the leadership and start at the top not the bottom that is not the issue. The leadership team is FULL of itself and they have NO respect for sales people especially.

    I worked at Verint Systems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch, great people to work with. Growing company.

    Cons

    Top management are either on drugs or on another planet. No one with an ounce of common sense would continue to play musical chairs with managers, send peppy company emails full of BS, and expect their Great Leap Forward to be successful, as well as continuing to buy companies as if they were Cisco Systems right before the tech bubble burst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go out and visit your employees - the lower managers and the guys in the trenches, not your VPs. Listen to them, don't lecture them on your usual business school BS they have no practical use for. I hear Weird Al Yankovic wrote a song about your Disney method of management. Keep doing what you are doing and watch your customer satisfaction ratings go down the toilet along with your sales and jobs - oh, I forgot you have golden parachutes.

    Pros

    The strategy and market of products are both very good. There is rich opportunity if you can sell complex, large scalel transactions. Presales team is very good and highly capable to communicate solution value. Strong sellers make really good to great money. Bottom line, if you get up work every day and learn how to sell strategy you will make very good money. Seven figure income definitely possible because you can sell eight figure transactions! Value are very good. Having worked at large ERP company I can tell you they are a lot more employee focused and provide equity for good long time contributors.

    Cons

    Lots of change due to acquisitions and evolving focus of the company. Systems and processes are not what you would expect for $1B company. Services needs work. Not a lot of time or money spent developing employees. You have to figure out a lot on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in systems and people and company will grow faster.
