    Pros

    Tremendous opportunity for hardworking people to start or grow their cyber security career, or be challenged in your area of expertise. Management is supportive and open to suggestion and continuous improvement.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but some may not realize they need to speak up when it gets too demanding. You may not like working here if you do not self-manage well or are not driven.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure everyone has what they need to succeed.

    I worked at Herjavec Group

    Pros

    There are really not many

    Cons

    Terrible work experience, you are just a hired body someone got a pat on the back for paying you under what you are worth.

    Advice to Management

    ‘Management’ is low level employees given senior titles. It’s a total sham. Herjavec knows what they are doing is wrong he just don’t care. Say anything to bring in the accounts and deal with the issues later. Not customer or tech centric just snake oil salesmen.

    I have been working at Herjavec Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Constantly challenged, good vacation days.

    Cons

    Constantly challenged because sales will say and do anything to make a sale. Often it feels the company doesn't care about technical people. Promotions almost never happen as the company prefers to hire outside instead of internal growth. The companies only vision is to sell more. So if you aren't helping with sales you are forgotten quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up

    I worked at Herjavec Group full-time

    Pros

    This is the job to take if you're looking to enter the work force. You do not need any formal education to be a security analyst at this company. Apply for this job to obtain the title and put it on your resume. You don't need to be skilled/knowledgeable to be hired. You will learn in importance of the phrase "C. Y. A." and how to manage your managers. You will become more independent and also understand corporate...

    Cons

    Knowledgeable analysts are of course coveted. Tier 1 analysts are not paid to think. They are paid to not breach contract. This can have a negative impact on customer's security posture. Any higher level of anaylsts are demanded to have expert level knowledge. Unfortunately there is no training available to bridge that gap except for sales training. Do not expect to be hired as a tier 1 and learn enough to be a qualified...

    Advice to Management
