    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology.

    Established channel & customer base

    Good benefits

    Great people

    Cons

    Commission structure on paper looks okay, in reality targets change many times in a year, orders won get moved to other sales reps months after the sale.
    In short its almost impossible to figure out what you'll get paid or what might be taken away from your figures at a later date.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the commission plans / Account allocations and it will be an even better place to work.

    Pros

    - You get to work with some of the best minds in the IT security industry.
    - You get to work with Check Point's core firewall products which are considered leaders and visionary by third party assessors.
    - The company is small enough (c3000 emp.) for individuals to have their ideas listened to and when appropriate acted on.
    - Hardwork is recognised and commended.
    - A lot of money is invested into R&D over marketing (unlike some competitors...), this leads to the near constant release of new industry shaping products, such as the new Capsule offering.

    Cons

    - Despite Check Point security solutions being installed in 100% of Fortune and Global 100 companies, it is a relatively unknown company on the global corporate landscape.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more on marketing and let everyone know who we are and what we do.
