    Growing Pains

    Pros

    -The product is great, and getting better -The leadership of Mike & MC is great -Recent key hires seem to be good hires, which was a problem in 2019 -With the current financial environment and record levels of unemployment, it's great to hear from Gary that they aren't considering layoffs or salary reductions (time will tell if that is just lip service). It's definitely a perk of being part of a big organization.

    Cons

    The expectation may have been set too high for how smoothly the transition from a 150 person company to a 3000 person company would be. As should have been expected, but perhaps most employees were not made aware of, there have definitely been some growing pains associated with the acquisition. Different requirements and processes, expectations for how to conduct yourself as part of a larger organization, and ObserveIT becoming more of a cog in the machine opposed to a standalone have definitely led to some friction out of the gate. Hopefully as time moves on and we become more acclimated, these things will change. Don't think our leadership can do anything about it - but the benefits are not really what a lot of people expected from an industry leader based in Silicon Valley; parental leave doesn't really exist, salaries weren't adjusted (in Proofpoint glassdoor reviews, low salaries seem to be common problem that leads to a lot of turnover), PTO doesn't seem "unlimited", 401K match is very low etc. I understand that there are some things that are better, but it feels like we lost a lot more in culture than we gained in other areas.
