    Pros

    I actually had a few months where I made enough to pay ALL of my bills. And another pro is I'm gone, and no longer have to stare at my laptop, swearing about all the confusion and super old people.

    Cons

    It's just a mess. No training. Very transient. No marketing. I mentioned the name of the company to an innovator, and he says, the old, firewall company? And then, proceeds to rave about PAN.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue and stop bringing in managers that are rejected from the renowned companies! Get some regular product training for everyone! Stop staring at salesforce and empower your sales team! (Why am I even writing this? Israel does not care.)

    Pros

    -Free lunches (but they aren't too good)
    -Personal desk space

    Cons

    Its an easy job but it can get depressing knowing that you will never get promoted and even if you do you will not get the pay you deserve. Everyone in the US offices have an average age of 50 - so it is not a young atmosphere at all and a poor place to start a fast past and relevant career.

    Advice to Management

    try to build a culture, and challenge all employees to learn new things. Have more community events, and team builders, and all hands events. Everyone here is miserable and jokes about leaving but they are too old to actually find another job.

    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Technologies , some of the best engineers

    Cons

    The leadership is still living in the 80's when they were a great company and did not have to invest in marketing and also the command and follow leadership needs to change in order to remain competitive .....

    Advice to Management

    You hire talent but your local and international leadership limits the talent with the company wide command and follow leadership style......Please change that
