    Pros

    The company has some solid products that win on technical merits, and is growing aggressively to market and promote their new / old products. The management and the employees are professional and capable.

    Cons

    As the company grows aggressively on all fronts (products, territories, etc.), it needs to better transition the existing employees to handle the growth (through training, rotation, attrition, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Grow the company by increasing the margins, by asking the employees to innovate and become more efficient / effective.

    Pros

    Stable company, located right outside of downtown San Jose, CEO and Executive leaders are all personable, smart people.

    Cons

    Not a company big on employee morale or hosting fun events/lunches. Outgrowing office space, having the share small offices.

    Advice to Management

    We need to have some fun! Lunches, employee appreciation, holiday celebrations, etc. Breathe some life into the company - it will make the people who do work here appreciate their jobs more.

    Pros

    Great product that the market acceptance is continuing to grow. Insider threat and cyber security is a hot market and Vormetric has a unique product that is not easily competed against! Strong senior leadership and market positioning.

    Cons

    Core technology is great. Expansion up the stack to application encryption is a logical evolution.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the aggressive steps towards market dominance and sales execution.


  7. Great experience at an ordinary company.

    Pros

    Variety of technical experience gained in working on the companies software products. The company has 2 basic product (security and encryption) that are supported on Windows and all major Unix platforms. These products require substantial development effort at both the kernel (operating system) and user application level. This is very marketable experience.

    Cons

    Management expects round-the-clock efforts to resolve customer issues and is oblivious to the impact this has on individual employees. No acknowledgment of the effort is given at the conclusion of the crisis.

    Advice to Management

    The companies products requires exceptional levels of expertise and experience which are not easy to replace after the typical two year stay of most engineers at the company. Lower development costs and higher product quality would likely result if employee turnover were reduced.
