    I have been working at Certified Security Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to be valued in a sales department CSS is the company for you. The mentality is that we are a team and we all grow together.

    Upper management is always communicating with you and value your opinions and ideas on how to grow more business.

    The senior leadership team is motivated, active, and fully endorse an open door policy.

    This company is a rocket ship and is absolutely poised to blow up in our market space.

    Cons

    This still a young software sales organizations so they are still in the process of developing career paths. However this will be fixed with time.

    Some sales processes are still being hammered down, but again i expect this all to be ironed out in the next 6-12 months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your teams and promoting within. The loyalty of the guys and gals in this organization is amazing - promote that mentality!

    Pros

    CSS has built an incredible team with bright, passionate, industry experts. They have an open culture and embrace people who challenge the status quo. Their latest software product is truly a big iron software platform that will be a game changer in the enterprise and IoT / IoE.

    Cons

    The company has a ton of opportunity in the market and needs to remain focused on their big bets, do not get distracted with business opportunities that are not core to the mission.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within first, but don't be afraid to hire a few industry stalwarts to the senior management team. A VP of Product development could that is solely focused on the software platform roadmap could be a significant game changer.

    Pros

    Exciting industry to be a part of. From what I've seen so far, CSS has an opportunity to grab a bigger and bigger slice of the security pie as companies become more and more proactive in their approach to security. Appreciate the direction CSS is taking to be part of that. Like the opportunity to have my voice heard with new ideas, efficiency improvements, processes, etc. I often see the "all hands on deck" approach to doing the right things for clients and employees and being successful in business goals.

    Cons

    Egotistically, it's hard to feel like the "smartest person in the room" around these teams. The good thing is that, while the staff is smart, no one is shouting over each other just to be competitive or right. If you don't already know the ropes in this industry, be prepared to proactively learn and ask questions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path of adding good people, processes, efficiency and effectiveness to the business; continue asking for employee input; keep fostering team collaboration.

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for with very bright future. Smaller company with everyone getting along. Feels more like a family. CEO is very engaging. Your co-workers are willing to share their knowledge and everyone is working together. VERY bright people with outstanding credentials and careers. As previous review said, they cast a big net and run a tight ship with great future outlook. Benefits are top notch and management is always looking for ways to improve everything.

    Cons

    No cons to report whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It's a bright future for CSS!

    Pros

    CSS is still small enough to feel like a start up but their leadership has big goals and deep industry connections. CSS is committed to their customers and the team has a "whatever it takes" mentality. Kevin Von Keyserling leads the way as CEO and has managed to keep this company going during tough economic times. It's a great company with great potential.

    Cons

    They are small in terms of overall employees but they cast a wide net and they an back up what they promise. They have a lot of overhead (people) like any services company and when the economy tanks, they are at risk. Capital is tight, they run a lean machine so only go to CSS if you are ready to be more than just an 8-5 employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sticking to your vision and continue to execute your strategy in line with your values. Your team is great. I believe you will go very far.
