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

    Pros

    We get to work on bleeding edge projects with awesome people.

    Cons

    The office is tucked away, so if you want to go find lunch, you have to drive - or eat off the lunch truck.

    Advice to Management

    Catered lunches would be awesome.

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

    Pros

    Nice people, no drama, reasonable hours (but very little flexibility).

    Cons

    Engineering leadership lacks experience and is struggling with cloud technology, repeating every common engineering mistake. Sadly, the culture is not open to improving by listening to external experience. If you are an established expert who has already successfully built larger systems than here you'll be very frustrated at Proofpoint as your input is routinely ignored. The culture is strictly hierarchical so unless you land position with an architect title you will be treated as an entry-level coder.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire experienced A team players you must given them the responsibility and authority to deliver.
