    I have been working at Core Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing culture with outstanding leadership and the opportunity to learn as much as you want in the space. The company allows you to work semi autonomously so unless you need to be micromanaged it is absolutely the best environment I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

    Cons

    The cyber security world is saturated, so unless you are driven and excited about the Information Security, this is not the place for you. There have been several acquisitions and mergers over the past 2 years, so you must expect the unexpected. That is the way it works for any private equity backed organization.

    Advice to Management

    Given that new leadership has taken over and seeing their numbers over the past 3 years, keep doing what your doing. But please don't discount how important the current culture is and how much fun we have in the office

    I worked at Core Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours, the base salary, and low stress.

    Cons

    Executive leadership was lacking, no transparency, and the product is incredibly unreliable . The training that was executed by K1 (the ownership group) was a complete joke. The fact that there are several people who were hired and then laid off on months after starting shows the eneptitude of executive leadership. They also have no clue on how to appropriately use Salesforce.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your product, When hiring it would be best to manage expectations and not sell someone on how great the company is doing when it is in fact doing very poorly.

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

    Pros

    - There is a great amount of opportunity to have an impact with the clients.
    - The Leadership Team has a clear vision and creates an atmosphere where the employees can succeed.
    - The people on my team and those of other teams I work with are great.
    - I do feel that my manager cares about the team.

    Cons

    Learning about newly acquired products has been a challenge at times. I think the Leadership Team recognized this and has made some very good improvements with our training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have done. The way management treats the team has been a big reason why we have been able to find and keep some great people here.

    Great coworkers, a sense of "family"

    Growth & advancement opportunity
    Comprehensive training
    Solid management that will listen & help their employees as best they can
    Management recognizes hard work
    Challenging & fast paced. Never a dull moment!

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees. Keep on NOT micromanaging - that is a huge benefit. Most of us have a huge workload and we work in spikes and not changed to our desks. We care deeply about producing, and we produce a lot. We can do that because you respect us enough to give us some freedom in how we do our jobs.

    I have been working at Core Security full-time

    Pros

    Coming out of all the acquisitions, I am seeing a lot of passion about customers and delivering great products. Definite pride in what we produce and great effort to remedy any stumbles we had during all the transition. A new culture is forming. I particularly like that the company does a lot of things to give back to the community. Managers have high expectations, but also are very flexible with work life balance.

    Cons

    Challenges from all the acquisitions really affected morale and it was a long haul, but managers did a good job of recognizing those that really stepped up and delivered. Strong teams are forming and a good energy exists in the company. Other cons would be nits.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to over-communicate. Invest in your people and things will be good.
