Executive leadership really cares about doing the right thing by employees. From the beginning of the pandemic to present day, leaders have done their best to make the best decisions for the vast majority of employees (no small feat for a company of 4,000+). As an example, the decision was made to enable employees to decide what is best for them in terms of working remotely or coming in to an office – or a mix of both. This decision really was a game changer in that people who wanted to continue to work remotely could do so, and continue their newly created routines that were created over the last two years and those who wanted to come to an office could also do so. Additionally, this also means that we have broader ability to hire in other places not limiting us to local market talent pools.
Employees are provided with a wellbeing day every quarter so we can take additional time to focus on ourselves, families, etc. The leadership team has really considered all angles when it comes to trying to find the best balance for a population of over 4,000. There are some employees who may want comparable perks as what you may get at FAANG, but unlike most of FAANG, we aren’t being forced into the office and are trusted to do our best work remotely. There is a 3 week work anywhere program, and flexible time off in the U.S. has always been part of our offerings. WHAT AN AMAZING TIME TO BE AT THIS COMPANY!
Over the years Proofpoint has experienced growing pains, but nothing out of the ordinary for any fast growing company especially in high tech. Some employees voice concerns that the company is too fiscally conservative, but no one is complaining when the bonuses pay out WAY over 100%..........
Advice to Management
Keep listening to your people; it is clear to many that you are considering what is best for the broader population. Great job keeping your people as a priority!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Proofpoint (San Francisco, CA) in April 2018.
Talked with recruiter, hiring manager virtually and then finally the hiring manager face to face. Hiring manger seems flustered during each interview- he had to take other calls and kept me waiting... recruiter was very professional.
