    Pros

    Verint has many smart people who work hard to succeed in their roles
    Verint leadership is driven to growth and that is clearly articulated and a rally points

    Cons

    Services challenges in organization and team due to turnover, reorganization, several iterations of leadership withing the past few years

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the services organization to ensure growth and success down the road; turnover, hiring, training are very expensive compared to the cost of doing it right the first time

    Pros

    Good folks working there. Quite helpful in getting me acclimated to the work environmnet. Offer free lunch in the office, mid-week. Very Knowledgeable resources. Decent work/life balance, although some managers just need peons they can eyeball everyday. Ego, perhaps.

    Cons

    Pay leaves too much room for seeking other job opps. Share the revenue with your laborers, Verint. Team collaboration could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Your posture and prod for employee feedback as if you want to make the work environment a better place, but actions are slow to materialize. Put your money and honorable intentions truly where your mouth is!

    Pros

    Many excellent colleagues, intelligent people, interesting product.

    Cons

    No interest in employees, ridiculously hierarchical management (promotion often achieved through nepotism), a 'value' system that utterly contradicts itself (there is no 'transparency', little 'passion', no 'humility', etc.), and a sham of a 'bonus' system where criteria changes regularly to avoid having to pay employees any bonus. Very few advancement opportunities for employees, increasingly limited benefits, and minimal training support to grow employees. Finally, silo'd environment between Atlanta, Santa Clara and Tel Aviv results in all kinds of product development issues, which often result in unhappy customers when each product release ends up being buggy. Bugs are just getting fixed as the next buggy release rolls out.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to your human resources, not just the bottom line. You've enough money to invest in people, who in the end are what makes any business shine. Flatten the hierarchy, and ensure only people who deserve a position get it. Rationalize product development process.

    Pros

    Awesome and helpful team. Good learning opportunity. Got to interact with other teams and understood the complete product. Easy to interact with senior level employees. Later, was asked to choose a path for skill development.New office is very nice. Break room is stuffed with food. Tuesday lunch is a hit! Very friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Less salary as compared to industry average.

    Pros

    The marketing organization is great. There are a lot of great people in the organization who really care about trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Executive management is so far removed from the business that they don't know how to fix the problems. The product is so complex it is impossible to get properly installed, and the software is extremely buggy each new release. Customers don't like how hard it is to do business with the company.

    Pros

    Some very smart people who are genuine about the success of projects and working as a team. A lot of innovative ideas to address needs in the market. Somewhat unstable and difficult to troubleshoot given the amount of 3rd. party and open source software used to code and interact with the application.

    Cons

    No quarterly bonus is becoming the norm. T&M model, along with tracking daily time down to 30 min. increments, submitting a very granular time sheet every Friday and being reminded to open a time sheet before Monday can make one feel like a child vs. a technical professional. Annual comp. increase is below par.
    Application somewhat unstable and difficult to troubleshoot given the amount of 3rd. party and open source software used to code and interact with the application. Very touchy. One minor file tweak can impact a major component and be extremely difficult to solve for.
    Middle and upper management in some areas have become a revolving door with very senior staff leaving and new staff being asked to leave in a relatively short period of time. Sr. tenure staff seem to leaving in general if they can get out and find something else equal or better.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in leadership that knows the business we're in and understands the real world.
