    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.

    Pros

    Can make OK money if you have the right accounts and territory. But every year they try to pay less.

    Cons

    Every since they brought a new GM in North America there has been constant change and lack of trust from the employees to the company. They preach transparency and caring about the employee but the team now in place does not care at all about the employees they just want to get rich and then they claim they do everything and the employees are idiots. When you leave be sure you get your expenses and comp paid out first as they tend to not pay you as you move on. The new GM is constantly looking at how to not pay rather than reward even though he says that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop only focusing on yourself and walking on employees. It is great to want to drive profits but without realistic expectations or the right systems and process you put everything on the backs of the workers. I am not sure the new blood really gets it and they are constantly speaking out of both sides of their mouths. Management does not take input or criticism well they can march in one direction even though completely wrong and then blame the workers. The CEO Dan is good the next couple layers down are questionable.

    Pros

    Company has done several acquisitions which create opportunity to learn and grow. Always something new to focus on and learn. Good markets for products and huge customer base to sell into. Management listens and does good job of correctly bad decisions quickly. Company is fairly employee focused - free lunches, great equity program for those who perform and reasonable work-personal life balance.

    Cons

    Change intensive environment. If you just want to keep doing what you have been for past 5 years and not be bothered, this is not place for you. Changes will keep coming in order for company to grow. Need better and more training programs to help employees keep up with change and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Human Resources and Product Quality. Both a key to growth and need further investment to ensure long term growth and adaptation to change.

    Pros

    The products have a good future in the market. Lunch is provided once a week, employees are nice, they encourage donations to outside organization in needs. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    Career is immobile. Poor training, no work life balance or internal advancement for honest workers. Current management is incompetent and rude, and if one person in management dislikes you , you are guaranteed to never advance because management stick together against employees no matter how good the employee(s) is or are. Prior management years ago was way better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to CEO , replace all VP and SVP with good respectful and quality upper management.

    I worked at Verint Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Location. Established strong professional relationships with co-workers (excluding management).

    Cons

    Inept management; complete lack of accountability for departmental issues; one of the most backwards HR departments in existence; and a mind boggling turnover rate (internal transfers and external departures) which management refuses to acknowledge. Backstabbing, cut throat environment that is a reflection of 'the tone at the top'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is poisoned from within. Expect all of the same issues indefinitely until the problems are removed. It all leads back to the caliber of management.
