    I worked at Sophos full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Product
    Some very talented people, both technical and commercial.
    Strong Partner eco system

    Cons

    No leadership
    No on boarding process
    Some older staff tend to be very cagey with helping around technical questions
    Don't recruit from within
    Tends to be a tug of war within management on whom is getting the results.

    Advice to Management

    Try to mentor people to be promoted, you need people more than they need you.
