    Very good solutions that all tie in together on one platform. Cloud products are strong. Great people. Everyone willing to help for the greater good.

    Cons

    Not many at all. Every company has its quirks, but nothing worth writing about.

    Pros

    Expense for clients Lunch catered for office days Good set of products

    Cons

    Mid level management landed job because its easy. Little experience in cyber security themselves. Product is selling because of state of affairs and not tactics. Dont get me started on comp. Management will back stab you. Lie to you, go behind your back, really pathetic culture. Could be top 5 worst in the area. For every 1 talented person theres 10 toxic people to screw things up 80% of the time with their BS. They will be protected though, not you since you are a threat to them. Hopes were high, much better culture and nurturing elsewhere.

    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Some really great people work here in individual contributor/lower management roles. - Cool opportunity to meet people from around the world - Free lunch if you work out of an office - Trip to HQ in Israel was a great experience -Decent benefits. ESPP and 401k matching are nice

    Cons

    So very many -Management is entirely based in Israel and doesn't seem to understand the world outside of Israel -Zero opportunities to grow or learn. Just a place to put your career on hold. So many people here just coasting to retirement or their next job. -Company is super siloed. Different departments are highly territorial and refuse to work together. No one wants to take initiative to improve things and risk rocking the boat. - Senior management is just out of touch with reality. -Pay is terrible - If you have issues, HR is at best indifferent and at worst just totally non-responsive
