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

Pros

- Some good people on team
- 9-5 job

Cons

- Bad vibe
- 20-30% lower pay then average
- Not a career but just a job

Advice to Management

Pay people and they will stay. Sales targets are way out of reach. Good sales people will leave.

    Pros

    No micro-managing - they allow you to do your work your way, as long as you get it done well.
    Great benefits
    Lots of options for training - they provide online training and industry recognized certifications that you can take - all paid for.

    Cons

    Limited options for growth - while the company does allow you to grow, and encourages it, the options of what to do are a bit limited.
    And while you have a lot of options for training, not too much time is given to actually train.

    I worked at Sophos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Security is a good industry to be in. Made some nice acquisitions. Great PE. A sincere CEO.

    Cons

    Company is getting confused. Doesn't know what to do and where to go next. Couldn't leverage great acquisitions like Utimaco and Astaro. Unable to get the strategy and execution right. Too much talks and very less focussed action. Losing good people and carrying too much baggage for the size of company it is. Not able to capitalize the opportunity to grow fast.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of baggage. Get the focus right. Sophos can be much bigger than what it is today. Stop thinking too much about exit only and get focussed on right product portfolio and right people for right jobs.
