      Great Company

      Pros

      Company culture is fun, job allows good work/life balance, products are some of the best on the market.

      Cons

      Marketing is the company downfall. We have some of the best products that do well in 3rd party testing, but everyone considers us a "legacy firewall company" due to lack of marketing and partner enablement.

      A very nice work environment

      Pros

      Good work environment, flexible schedule, team effort, no back-biting, focused on the customer and product quality.

      Cons

      I have good days and some difficult days, but can always depend on my co-workers and management to assist when needed. I really haven't looked for, or found any things to complain about.

      Don’t Recommend

      Mar 11, 2021 - Security Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Remote work, learning opportunities, exposure to technology.

      Cons

      Pay is lowest in the industry. No one can figure out commission. They keep coming up with loopholes to not pay commission, discouraging going above and beyond. There’s no incentive to excel. Extremely bro culture, almost toxic. Men keep manterrupting you if you’re a female. Mostly mediocre men thrive here. The quality of the products are subpar. Very buggy and don’t integrate well. Customers have to open many SR-s due to faulty code. Development and QA needs improving. Despite their bragging about 1500 people working in R&D, it doesn’t reflect in the quality, unless they write the code half asleep. Customers constantly complain about TAC, which is common in this industry, but it is at a whole other level at Check Point.
