Pros

Check Point has an excellent team of veteran engineers, who can make the impossible happen. The team are dedicated, fair, working with them is a pleasure.

Cons

Roadmap planning is too politicized
No career path for project managers
No product management in the organization - for a company who has 10's of products!

Advice to Management

Company leadership is too heavily biased towards R&D, the is little regard to the role of a product manager nor any pressing need to establish such an organization. This should change.

    Paying commission true-ups is slow. The travel policy has gotten bother some (cut back in hotel quality, room sharing at company events).

    Advice to Management

    Remember your field sales folks are on the road a lot, and making this easier for them makes up for the relativity low pay compared to our counterparts at Cisco, Symantec, etc.
