    Pros

    The company is really on the move and made some very smart acquisitions. Revenues are up and Wall Street loves the company. There is a very strong installed base of customers who are locked in to Verint

    Cons

    There has been a lot of changes to move the company into the enterprise space at the expense of company culture loosening of the focus on customer satisfaction. There is a general unease with the changes and the compensation plans that support these changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maximizing revenue at the expense of customer satisfaction is something to pay attention to. There is a growing number of customer that hold there nose to do business with Verint. In the short term that's all well and good to drive growth but is it sustainable?

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Everyone does seem to care for one another.
    Good benefit package available.
    Allowed to work from remote offices

    Cons

    You can get lost in the mix with all of the changes they are always going through.
    Seems to high a high turn-over lately. Vision of the company seems to be losing focus of their employees.
    At times, training is an after thought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to determine what is important to them for the future before they become a company that has unsatisfied employees and customers.

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and promote more from within.

    A good company, but understaffed and adjusting to big process changes.

    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.
