    I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at Comodo for 7 years now, and I am not looking for another job!

    Pros
    Being in Comodo for the last 7 years has taught me many valuable lessons regarding professionalism. I can now say, with confidence and with some pride, that I have over the years evolved into a real good professional, thanks to my experience working with Comodo. I should say that this happened because I got the chance to work with some of the best professionals in the IT industry. The work culture at Comodo too has contributed greatly to this. Thanks, Comodo. Comodo indeed is the place where real professionals are made.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say about the company...

    Pros

    Pros
    Today I have completed six months at Comodo. I feel elated and satisfied; no other company has given the kind of job satisfaction that I have got from this Comodo job. I am almost sure that I would continue to work here for a long time. I could meet many people who have been working here for years now. Really a great place to work, for all IT professionals...

    Cons

    Not the place for easy-going, lazy people who just want to go on doing nothing...

    I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I joined Comodo, I was not sure how it would end up. I had had some bitter experiences working with some really 'big' companies and I was wondering if Comodo would also end up that way, with me walking out in maybe a couple of months or so. But my calculations went wrong. In just a couple of months, I could make myself an integral part of the team and the work that we were doing. Perfect teamwork it is at Comodo. You get to learn new things every day and you understand camaraderie and competence in a newer way. No wonder Comodo is able to give complete security to its clients...

    Cons

    How can I bring myself to write something negative about a company where I enjoy working? I haven't yet come across anything that I dislike or hate about Comodo.

    Pros

    Well, this is my fourth IT job and what I liked the best about Comodo is the work environment. I would want to call it awesome. Yes, it's awesome indeed, in my opinion (if that counts). We have seniors here who give us all the guidance that we need, with utmost patience. The regular sittings that we have with the technical guys also helps a lot in understanding the company and its products. It's a very informal, friendly atmosphere here at Comodo and I have never felt bored, not even for one single minute. For someone like me, who wants to learn something new every day and who wants to evolve into a good professional, Comodo offers much scope...

    Cons

    I don't think I found anything in the last fifteen months that would make me want to leave Comodo. But if you want me to state the cons, all that I can say is that this is not the place for those who want to sit idle doing nothing and earn their pay from someone else's efforts. You have to work hard, but don't worry, you would never lose anything by working hard at Comodo.

    I worked at Comodo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with really good people. This is the perfect stepping stone job. Get in, get your experience, get out. Simple as that.

    Cons

    There's a Ton but the biggest is working for the CEO. Hard to work for someone who is such an unlikeable person.

    Advice to Management

    When you make your own employees write good reviews you know you are not doing well

    I worked at Comodo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a learning experience. Sales job with quotas. You have three months of probation and if you dont hit the quota you are gone. Basic jist of it. They say it cost money to keep you on that seat in the office. You have to produce. Or you are done

    Cons

    Honestly, I speaked my truth on the Pros because that is exactly what it is. If you enjoy calling 120-180 calls a day trying to sell to people than its the job for you. Remember this, you are only as good as your last sell.

    I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any. I need out of this place it is an absolute joke. The only thing management is good at is managing their reputation. Just look at all the fake reviews to counter the real ones on this very site. All real reviews followed by 1 or 2'reviews by HR or the CEO himself. If you want favorable reviews read the real ones and learn from what is consistently being said.

    Cons

    Signing the offer letter and following through. Do not waste time here. Comodo invents products that other companies have brought to market at least 1-2 years early and think they will take market share. the products don't work and what's being designed is not what the market needs or wants. It's what some engineer outside the US thinks is cool.
    When they are 0 sales they come down hard on everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to certs do nothing else.

    I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve been working here for approx. 1 year. I have never had a problem. You come to work to WORK. Don’t get involved in watercooler chat so to speak and just make your money and you will always be happy with what you get out of it.

    Cons

    I wish it had more opportunity for advancement in different offices.

    Pros

    Comodo is evolving into a legit advanced enterprise security player that can really deliver for the customer. Security people get the difference with the objective: Strong security with no impact on the user experience and work, and easy to manage. Big time investment has been made into the whole solution stack from endpoint to SSL, and when a customer needs something they get it fast because of the HUGE number of tech/engineers and drive to keep customers happy.

    A really good sales culture is forming. And sales gets what it needs to make the customer happy. I also like the new sales strategy that is ALOT more effective and respectful. All about making the customer successful. New management is awesome and just gets it. I see we are on to something big, and we are bringing in really really great people it seems every week.
    Our new marketing SVP and team now here to help give the company the look it deserves to make it easier to see what we do.

    Best thing here though is all the people. such an awesome group!

    Cons

    We are still evolving. That means a lot of work to be done. Have to be more resourceful than ever, and it's kind of like a startup that way and many times we don't have all the marketing materials needed. Need a new website refresh to make it more clear on our real value, because it's not easy to understand now. Just growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Make our branding more reflective of the default-deny value, and how everything we do from endpoint to SSL. Need more materials big time to help us spread the good word. Keep hiring great people like recently.
