    Pros

    They have the best products in the security software space. It is fun to sell the best. They give you great autonomy to succeed!

    Cons

    They are very frugal. It is good as a shareholder. Not so good as an employee. At annual meetings you have to share a room.

    Advice to Management

    Stop room sharing!

    Pros

    Founder still with the firm and very productive.

    He has a unique style different than any other founder in the field at the level CHKP competes

    Cons

    The firm is at the stage where it is preparing for the next round of growth to double the size of the company.

    This will probably require additional breadth of executive management and some delegation of authority to be able to act with speed against the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to maintain leadership in the field.

    This will require further refining of a long-term strategy to counter some of the fiercer competitors.

    Pros

    Mature pure-play security company with industry leading state-of-the-art solutions across the entire security spectrum. Focus on providing extremely well performing unified products with a strong emphasis on channel partners for resale and services add-ons. Excellent entrepreneurial culture and team orientation. Tons of learning experiences and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Have not seen any in my time here. Really happy to be contributing my time and energy to our goals and missions. Seems to be a strong feeling that we are positively impacting our customers at a very high and important level. I like being part of that kind of momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Stay exclusively security focused, continuously upgrade existing products, introduce new technology offerings as appropriate and maintain the solid customer support.
