    Learn many aspects of industry-leading firewalls very quickly
    Great benefits
    Free lunch
    Great stock purchase program
    Teamwork is highly encouraged

    Cons

    The pay is comparatively awful

    Some degree of micro-management from Israel

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth, and they will stick around longer. Check Point is a great place to work. If you took a poll of why technical advisers left, the number 1 reason would be because they were offered more elsewhere.

    "A great place to gain experience, but the upper management is very heavy handed."

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn IT Security inside and out if you stay for 2+ years
    An environment with relaxed dress code and a few perks like paid for lunch up to 8 dollars from a choice of 4-5 restaurants every day.

    Cons

    Poor entry level salary
    understaffed in every department makes for a very heavy workload
    Managers for the Technical support department are not technical whatsoever which makes them incompetent at properly delegating responsibilities.
    Their decisions are strictly on meaningless metrics and parameters. For example, how many tickets have been closed per worker on average... How often tickets are closed, length of time tickets have been open.
    Extremely stressful demands from technical customers and non-technical managers.
    This company is all about trial by fire. The strong survive. Training is very poor and the tools provided are minimal. It's very much a cooperative effort with colleagues and a lot of patience that gets you through the endless and demanding phone calls which are very technical and complicated in nature.

    Advice to Management

    Hire technical managers that can properly discern and delegate responsibilities to maximize efficiency.
