I have been working at BeyondTrust full-time (More than 3 years)
It's fun to work for a company that has such a major impact in our day to day world. Any time a hack or a breach occurs in the news (seems to be happening more and more lately) we see the effect. Our emails start blowing up with companies reaching out to us when this happens. The security industry is here to stay and is not going anywhere! The company offers a great work/life balance. They also focus really heavily on culture which is shown from the top (CEO) down. Everyone is committed to making the company a great place to work.
Like any growing company they have their challenges. Sometimes process can be a bit long but they are working to clean this up and make it easier to close business.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing and continue to listen to what the employees want in a company.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BeyondTrust (Aliso Viejo, CA) in July 2015.
I got a call for an interview by phone, we talked about 20 minutes about my background and current position, a basic screening. One week later the second call was to test my technical skills, it went ok, I answered most of the questions ok. So far so good I was excited for the opportunity. I was sure I could get the job, since I have 10 years of experience and I was applying for a Junior position, but I was doing it because its close to my home. So one week later I went to an interview face to face, several people interview me separately, they asked me to solve some problems, I think It went well since I presented the solutions and explained the difference other solutions. Very easy technical questions, I was motivates since I think I was doing very ok. But then came other guys, one short guy with very bad mood, by the reaction, it looked if he was forced to be there, I tried to be polite, tho. He started to ask questions completely unrelated to the technical question, asking me about my English level and my Spanish level, then he started to ask question like "Do you have green card?" surprised by the question since I already clear that out in my screenings, I said no, but I had a work permit (EAD) while my green-card comes out. Then he asked, "So you have no green card? But you came legal? have a visa?" I started to be nervous because all that issues were supposedly clear and it was not of his concern, the lady that made the screening had that solved, but still I needed the job so tried to be polite, I told him that my wife was American Citizen and I had an AED, but I became definitely nervous and that kinda put me down from then I could not focus on anything else, he asked more details about it, by the way he was asking the questions and for his tune I knew I would not get the job and I just wanted it to end the interview already, but for politeness I just continue with it, it was humiliating and it kinda let me knew I was being discarded, he pretended not to understand me most of the time. He asked me to solve a problem, but he was very detailed how I should write my code, he was annoyed if I was writing a character wrong or a non well tabuled code int the whiteboard, I am not sure it was a question, he was basically dictating code I should write, he did not give me chance to solve it by my own or to make my own code. I forgot anything else from there of his interview, he was trying hard to put me nervous and he made it. He asked me a question about methods, I knew the answer was "virtual method" and I answered, he said "are you sure? is there even a word 'virtual' in C#?". I was intrigued how somebody who did not know C# was doing the interview. I was pretty sure about my answer. The last guy just came, game his name and asked if I had a question for him, that was all, he just answered and left, I kind of felt like it all was a waste of time for him. I really liked the first 3 interviewers, they made me feel like I was going to enjoy to work there, but the rest were not a good experience. I went home sick after that, too much stress I felt unwelcome. Be ready if you are going to apply, maybe it is an strategy to have you psychologically and emotionally drained before to answer some questions.
