Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Working at a wholesome CyberSecurity Company

    Oct 29, 2022 - Technical Support Engineer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work is an option, team collaboration is valued, CP provides a safe space without judgment making it feel professional and welcoming.

    Cons

    Sometimes things can move too fast-paced, and if you are having a slow week personally, there is not much room to work with that.

    Great company that is committed to doing things the right way while providing the best security for its customers.

    Sep 12, 2022 - Channel Account Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    New North American Leadership is focused on doing things the right way and taking care of their employees, partners and customers. The Executive Leadership takes feedback and implements changes. Check Point does a good job of providing the right work life balance. The company feels like a "small company" feel despite being a larger company and they are very focused and passionate about providing security and doing things the right way. Your onboarding training is time consuming but very good. The company provides a lot of resources to be successful in your role and on a consistent basis. The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Despite having superior products, the company lacks brand awareness. Operational changes take some time because a lot of back office support teams are based in HQ which hinders your ability to do your job with the time change. Also, the salary pay could be better.

    Perfect place to start cs career

    Sep 1, 2022 - Professional Services Consultant in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Incredible internal support and resources/community Perfect for being introduced and becoming a professional in computer science career Other trainings for general social skills Opportunities to travel abroad in higher positions.

    Cons

    Very Low Salary, maybe 15 - 25% under market. Can feel like very over managed in hourly positions. Does not have the best people in management positions. Very little career growth in the company after 2 - 4 years. Internal training is only good enough for your role and barely expanding out to other roles. It is a whole new company of people every 4 years. The people in management have the largest egos and can make you feel very much less than what you're capable of. some fail to listen altogether The Support and Dev groups basically fight over issues. Coordination has not been resolved by upper executives in years. Company is controlled by Israel and all the money goes to their office/resources. All other offices are treated as satellite offices. Company does not feel like one international company sometimes.

    Incredible Organization with Many Career Growth Opportunities

    Aug 31, 2022 - Security Architect 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The level of teamwork, collaboration and commitment is like nothing I've experienced elsewhere in my career. From day one, there were no egos and everyone works well together; focused on the common vision and goal of delivering the best security and value to our customers. Management is incredibly supportive and very accessible. Questions, concerns and feedback have always been well received and addressed when necessary. There is a concerted effort made for all employees to achieve an excellent work/life balance. Efforts are regularly made to reward individual and team efforts for going above and beyond. I think these types of acknowledgements are important. There is more focus being placed on the positive, hard work being done than calling out the negative. I would highly recommend Check Point to anyone looking for a career in Cyber Security.

    Cons

    As is the case with any Global organization of Check Point's size, it can sometimes be difficult to track down the right resource. However, this is less of an issue as you build relationships across the Organization if you make an effort to network with folks outside of your immediate team.
