    I have been working at Allot Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There was a great start-up culture in the early days. There are still lots of opportunities for the technology. They are in a happening market segment. There are some great people.

    Cons

    become very bureaucratic, career paths are not clear, management is becoming staid, technology future is not clear. Management is not sure of the next step, nor is theDPI market clear as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Find new markets or applications for the core technology. Embrace virtualization -quickly!!

    Pros

    Good product and technology. In general the customers see allot as one of the market leaders.

    Cons

    Too centralized management. everything decided by CEO Rami Hadar. In general the culture is that nobody wants to do anything. Sometimes simple task takes very long time. The company is about 300 people, but internal processes and bureaucracy are like in huge concern with tens of thousands of people.

    Advice to Management

    Delegation of authority - allow middle management to take decision related to their duties. Motivate people - everybody asleep there.
