I worked at Allot Communications full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Allot puchased Ortiva Wireless a USA startup. In the end, they took over and made sure everyone totally unstood it was their way or the highway.

Cons

Israeli company with a fire you mentality. They will work you till your fingers bleed off and kick you to the curb if you stand up against them. They have no regard for their employee’s and no oversight for what the management is doing or not doing. Our startup in the U.S. was purchased by these guys and they started cleaning house by firing people.

Advice to Management

Remember, people are people not cash machines to work to death and then kick to the curb. Oh, and big thank you from the USA.

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

    Pros

    Some very good products, technology and many great people.

    Cons

    Centralized control in Israel and no trust or distribution of autonomy or authority for even the smallest decision making capabilities. No trust of the people in the field to make proper business decisions and no support for them with technology or resources. Very much a blame culture, not supportive. Run by bean counters who are overly focused on short term quarterly numbers and not long term success, lacking true focus on the customer and long term true solution development. Product Management is horrible, ill conceived ideas that are released before they are ready and are unsupportable in the field. There is no way for a field engineer to open a feature request via a ticket system, you have to call the product manager (how does that scale or how do you track it? Basically you can't and most field requests are suppressed by PM).

    Advice to Management

    Revisit your executive team and your organizations core value systems. Are they conducive to growth and retention of strong people with high ethical standards and the standard needs for autonomy, mastery and purpose. I don't think so. Look at Daniel Pink's book "Drive", you need to modernize the way you motivate people.
