    Pros

    It was a Pre-IPO company when I joined. The space is very hot, since Security and compliance is a big deal these days. The engineers there are of above average quality, and they work very hard and they are very productive. There are some super people there as well. Benefits were fairly good although their 401k did not match

    Cons

    Low Pay, decent benefits, but not great.. But I really got ripped off in terms of pay when I joined. they low balled me into taking a pay cut, which I later regretted. Basically the biggest drawback is that it is a startup with low pay.

    Advice to Management

    None.
