    I worked at Check Point Software Technologies for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong growth in cybersecurity market as a whole, great F1000 customer base Pretty good travel and expense policy for sales people (average) Local sales leadership is very strong, get it, takes good care to keep good people around

    Cons

    1.) If you are considering a role on the mobile security team, run....run very fast. CP is one of the only players poised to crush the emerging mobile threat market yet continues to fumble the ball. Leadership in Israel has mismatched expectations with what the market will bear/produce and the product is full of empty promises- development is slow and new releases are few and far between. Sales reps will not hit unrealistic quotas and they decelerate payments, plan on making just your base salary and traveling like a dog. In the end the lion share of the commissions are impossible to earn.

    Advice to Management

    FIX YOUR LOGO and accelerate your brand. Read the industry analyst reports (Gartner, Forrester, etc) on the Mobile Threat and take them to heart. Deliver on the features you promise. You do not have a people problem, stop burning through quality mobile sales people because you are not seeing growth, rather understand the reality of the market and right size your expectations. Go execute against that.

    Pros

    Good people Some managers are strong and fair Good firewall products Overall, until the Canada outsourcing, the environment was good. It is still good, but could be better. They offer lunch for everyone which manages to save some money. Insurance is awesome.

    Cons

    Some people were difficult to work with Endpoint team was being outsourced to Canada office The endpoint piece is strong from the encryption side, but the anti-malware is not as good as it could be. Also, upon purchasing Liquid Machines, it was no longer offered as a product for sale.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take care to be more cognoscente of the contributions of the tech support staff. In some cases,

    Pros

    international company with opportunities to grow, good people and a focus on building the business. there is a great deal of technical knowledge in the company and everyone is willing to share that knowledge

    the management can sometimes be more focused on new revenue than retaining existing customer base. revenue often trumps human resources concerns.

    Advice to Management

    focus more on retaining customers and employees rather than sacrificing them for new revenue. show more ccommitment to employee needs
