    I have been working at Check Point Software Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best jobs I've ever had the opportunity to get. The technology is amazing and the people I interface with inside the company are some of the brightest technologists I've had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    The company over the years has not spent too much time and effort on marketing thier solutions to the field. Many companies out there view Check Point as the legacy Firewall and VPN vendor and leaves the Sales team with an uphill battle on most deals.

    Pros

    Mid-level Management is great, but not empowered. All decisions still come from Tel Aviv.

    Cons

    The Senior Management team in Israel is totally disconnected from the way that IT does business in the US. The Channel program is broken, field marketing budget is non-existent, and Tech Support for customers is terrible. The VP of Sales in the US still operates like it's 1992.

    Pros

    Check Point Software has very strong offering in the Network Security space. They offer the most robust Firewall appliances in the market and is well know for delivering a high quality of performance.

    Cons

    There was a phase of growth within my department where hiring was very questionable. The department should have grown at the right pace and with the right people. Pay is not competitive compared to other established Silicon Valley Companies.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should check in on their other managers who only look out for themselves. The company should start offering a more competitive salary to be able to attract and hire the right people which will also lead to less turn over.
