    Pros

    Technologically great products, with a staff that believes in what they do. The prevention of Gen V cyber-attacks.

    Cons

    Marketing is a little underfunded, slower to get the message out.

    I have been working at Check Point Software Technologies full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    If you have the eagerness to learn you will be greatly rewarded and at a quicker pace. Health Benefits are really good. Really high Job Security. Plenty of opportunities to innovate and the company allows you to deploy your creations. Management cares about making things better for the employees and focusing on the customer experience.

    Cons

    Compensation starts off slow but can increase quickly after a few years Most of the development team is in Israel which makes customer support very difficult during their holidays and since their weekends start on Friday there is often a gap in update time. Easily get pulled into a poor work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on your challenges. There are plenty and you are making great progress.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Lots of forced knowledge...drinking from that fire hose for pretty much the first year. If you can make it through that, you'll be fine and it will help your career long-term. Lunch is provided daily which is convenient and made up for the cost in tolls to drive to the office.

    Cons

    Don't work in the Dallas/Irving, Tx office. This place is a dump that is full of lying, two-faced, maniacal managers and sociopathic directors. They will make you promises and will never keep them. They'll throw you a bone every once in a while to make you feel special and then proceed to drive you into the ground with extreme case loads, slave-like work conditions, and zero work-life balance. If you're not Jewish/Israeli,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people off of the street to work in support. Do a better job of hiring people with morals. Change the culture. D-TAC is a pit of vipers. Clean house on the management there and you will solve a lot of issues.

    Pros

    Working as a support engineer, training is available. Being successful in support requires self motivation to learn outside of your normal working hours.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower end for this level of support

    Pros

    People are friendly, resources are plentiful, and the products are highly rated. If you have drive and are goal oriented, you can be very successful at CP. The negative review on here are laughable, Check Point is one of the best places I've ever worked.

    Cons

    I've been here a year and can't think of one.

    Great products & services & Industry leading technology. Great place to learn about the Cybersecurity industry

    Cons

    It is a engineering lead organization. Sales people are not true appreciated. Marketing itself is not a focus of the company.

    I have been working at Check Point Software Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Nice people, trip to Israel for new hires, ability to learn a lot of new skills, innovative company with great products, good benefits

    Cons

    centralized management in Israel, overworked and unorganized management in US giving little guidance to new employees, no option WFH (even for extenuating circumstances), serious office culture that doesn't show appreciation for going above & beyond and doesn't attract fresh talent or give them incentive to stay

    Advice to Management

    there's HIGH TURNOVER at this company because there's no reason to stay - no WFH options, not a fun office culture, and people are cut down for making mistakes but not lifted up for working hard. Listen to your employees feedback, reward them (even verbally) for hard work, and decentralize management more.
