Cool technology, great location close to everything

Want to earn minimal pay even though you have your CCIE, CISSP, and other top level certs? Go work for nCircle - or earn 40-60K more at most other companies in the Bay Area. Is this a reflection of how you'll be treated financially after hiring? You betcha!

    Pros

    nCircle has been through several cycles of management, and while it hasn't always been easy or painless, it has forced them to evaluate their direction more often than other companies and stay nimble. They seem to have found a balance and are executing well on the vision.

    Some pros include:
    Smart people
    Motivated workplace
    Great technology
    Culture of innovation and high achievement
    Good work/life balance
    Market leader in vulnerability management and configuration compliance management

    Cons

    I think nCircle has some of the less enjoyable parts of any workplace: occasional politics, a person who annoys you and sometimes you don't get recognized for your accomplishments. However, having worked at a number of startups, the level of politics is very low, there's more people that are interesting and engaging than annoying, and you will get recognized for 90% of your achievements, so you have to consider it relative to other technology companies. On the whole, it's a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on innovation and growth. Keep the smart people and listen to them. Crush the competition. Don't ever let politics and petty infighting linger.

    Pros

    Good, smart people. Company is growing. Nice location in downtown San Francisco. Benefits are reasonable. Pay is good. Company good about letting you have time off.

    Cons

    Products are no longer competitive and have quality problems. Competitors are moving faster. Company is growing, but so slowly that it seems like it's being left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Make the hard decisions and stick to them. Get rid of underperformers faster. Be more creative in thinking about your overall strategy. Maybe be a little more encouraging.
