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

    Pros

    Execs keep us in the loop
    Compensation in line with other positions in greater Boston area
    Positive work environment

    Cons

    CTO travels so much he no longer leads dev innovation
    PC security is being solved by hardware and O/S creators by baking in whitelisting at the most fundamental level
    App Stores for PC/Mac with central revocation simplify whitelisting
    Administration of our white list solution is massively cumbersome so our adoption rates are very low
    Mobile and Cloud applications are the future of most new computer usage and development. Bit9 is wholly unable to secure these types of use cases
    Product not really effective against data-loss
    Posted losses for every quarter since we started.

    Advice to Management

    We need a mobile/cloud competition plan and need to execute on it now. Honestly I think we missed the boat and we can't recover since the market has moved on ahead of us. At best bolt-on whitelisting like we provide will be of niche value only. Cloud applications can secure against both malware and data-loss in a way we never can. O/S manufacturers are baking in whitelisting solutions directly in the operating system that decreases our value there as well. Corporate desktop spending is down. We are far too complex to be a consumer product.
