I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Management is very brilliant - possibly most, also great environment, lots of encouragement between the workers. Encouraged to work hard, very much, and great rewards if you are a success. CEO is definitely brilliant, pushes you to sell by his minds power to help, very encouraging. Close to the mall.

Cons

Some of the slower workers and sellers may feel as if they are letting CEO down. Often feel bad for fellow workers who sell dumb, sell slow, sell like they are not part of purpose.

Advice to Management

Could crack down on irresponsible employees more. "Pizza Friday" cruel joke.

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

    Pros

    i don't know what its like now, but when i worked there the people in my department were the best. to this day, im still close with several people i worked with. ability to try out new things

    Cons

    upper management, no flexibility in work, minimal PTO so don't ever want a vacation day or get sick, health insurance doesnt kick in for months and when it does its expensive, high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees. They get too burned out and stop producing. You've obviously spammed the board with positive reviews (you can't go from 1-3 stars for years and then in the same week add in dozens of 5 star reviews.. its kind of obvious) - rather than spamming saying all these great things you do for employees and how you're a great place to work, why not make that true? I remember one day an employee got fired just cause the CEO was having a bad day. And a running joke with the sales team that 50 would start on a monday morning and there was a 10% chance that one would be left at the end of the week. Stick to a plan. As one other reviewer posted, there'd be plenty of times you'd get a task, you'd stay late wanting to get that task completed - and by the time you'd show back up in the morning that whole idea was scrapped and it was something new.

    I have been working at Comodo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that Join Comodo (in Sales) are inexperienced however they are eager to learn,
    Most of the lower level employees are the biggest asset this company has
    The CEO is a Brilliant Engineer

    Cons

    1) Comodo is owned by a Brilliant Engineer, However, his ego is the one driving the Company to the ground

    2) For starters, there is no TRAINING whatsoever. New Hires are expected to sit in a cube and sell over the phone without product knowledge, nor any suggested easy to understand selling techniques. That is because NOBODY there has any.

    3) Because of the new hires inexperience and eagerness, they are taken advantage off. The reduced commissions, declined payment on closed deals, and lack of support from Sr Sales Members is the deal of the day.

    4) Some of the Senior Sales People are constantly conducting "under the table" deals, leaving the new hires without a chance to earn money nor make quota. Is all about them making money, they do not care who they hurt in the process.... Talking about KARMA!!!!

    5) There are a couple of talented and skilled people still working at Comodo, however they are afraid of loosing their jobs. Therefore, this diamonds in disguise purposely hide at the bottom/ middle of the ladder because they are afraid of becoming the "CEO's Flavor Of The Month". This means that the CEO because of his obsessive compulsive nature, will start focusing on you, walking around your desk, asking you questions in front of everyone that only try to challenge your intelligence while comparing it to his own. The result, if the he gets bored or finds out you can outshine him, the chances of getting fired are very high.

    6) Comodo also have A LOT of uneducated and incompetent people employed. These individuals are occupying positions that are key cornerstones for the success of the company. If anyone that has any values or education end up working with/or for them, soon ends up learning absolutely nothing because they do not have anything solid to offer. As a matter of fact I think you will forget anything good you had learned in the past

    7) Upper Management is blind on one side, with a CEO that has a huge unsupported Ego and by conclusion a lot of Greed. The only person that tries to work on the many issues and try to make it better, is tired of being blocked by the CEO, therefore tired of trying.

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO: YOU ARE A BRILLIANT Engineer, However, you are not a good at TALENT MANAGER.

    Please stick to Engineering and allow other people with real skills, experience and proven records, to handle other areas of the company.

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES!!!! and read the reviews in this website. If you do read the reviews objectively and analyze the common areas where the company is lacking, and make the necessary changes, only then COMODO will be truly successful. Instead of trying to create a smoke mirror for outside talent to believe that COMODO is an excellent workplace, by leaving fake happy reviews in this site. Eventually and if they get hired, they will too find out of the reality of Comodo, will quit or get fired and then you will have even more negative reviews.

    Fire all the maggots holding your key positions in the company because you think they are loyal, the reality is they are NOT. And spend some extra dollars on hiring Real, Proven, Track Record, TALENT you will see the return value at the end!!! but most importantly , given them Autonomy and LET THEM WORK.

    We have revamped the hiring process, have a full week of product, systems and sales training as well as “spot training” for sales. By the way, over 90% of our staff have undergraduate degrees... More
