Pros

Great company, great people! Proofpoint is full of people that are great to work with. The Utah office especially.

Big company, too much red tape. I didn't appreciate the amount of red tape I had to go through to get things done.

Advice to Management

Less top down, more transparency

    old habits
    old mindset
    wrong leaders in place, entitlment mentality, mediocre development team, mediocre sales team,

    Advice to Management

    PFPT has become stagnant, Gary Steele is a great leader but its the ones under him that need to go. Overall thinking of employees are they are all entitled, most are mediocre at best and limping on one leg. They have got to get out or be rolled out and start with new thinking or they will be stagnant. None of the old timers there have new or good ideas, it is a culture of i know it but really, dont know nothing...
