    I have been working at Hexis Cyber Solutions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a perfect storm for Hexis: incredible talent, unique company DNA in cyber security, right market timing with more and more data breaches and state-sponsored attacks happening. The opportunity is incredible, the core products address the future of cyber security, and the team "gets it" to deliver to our customers.

    Cons

    This is a fast-paced environment. Tons to do to build a foundation for the scale that we're seeing in the market. Experienced managers know when and how much to apply process at the right time to scale.

    Advice to Management

    No advice yet, I just started here! Keep up the good work of putting customers first!

  3. "Software Engineer"

    I worked at Hexis Cyber Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Gave developers more freedom to define core technical aspects of the product than most companies. Great compensation and benefits and a highly motivated engineering team.

    Cons

    Could have used a better long-term product roadmap and more forward thinking from management.

    I worked at Hexis Cyber Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really started to turn around right at the end. Hopefully the G technology can be re purposed into a smaller platform. Too bad AP never got any love.

    Cons

    Way too much cruft in middle management for too long. No clear market direction. Ignored the money making tech for cool new stuff that wasn't ready.

    Advice to Management

    We're all gone in a week anyway so it doesn't really matter anymore.

    Pros

    Best boss ever! Great collaboration for a remote team. Nice variety of projects. Good autonomy of design esthetics.

    Cons

    Too short-lived. Company is being sold so future is now unknown. Cybersecurity is a volatile and competitive space.

    Pros

    None, nothing positive from the experience

    Backstabbing Culture
    Serious Rice Bowl Issues

    Bring in a new sales team and learn to sell products

    Pros

    Good medical benefits. Good base salary. Lot's of training. Interesting work. Generous work from home policy.

    Cons

    Well, the company is being sold (our parent company can't get rid of us quick enough - basically dumping us at a huge loss), but here they are: worthless CEO. No stability. Game playing with incentives. Weak retirement benefit. Cronyism. Early company missteps were never recovered from even though the product offering is now of a very high quality.

    Advice to Management

    At this point I would just say hopefully won't also fail at your next endeavor. Try being honest with the employees. I know that sounds crazy, but give it a try!

    Very friendly close knit team, good salary great benefits and wonderful people. I think it is a good place to grow and learn new things.

    Cons

    They don't really listen and they tend to marginalize people.

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Innovative product, flat organization with good engineers who understand the threat.

    Cons

    Very crowded market ... Identify the right investor for next phase.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic on revenue expectations and engage with prospects more.

    Pros

    Great benefits competitive salary and great people. I learned a lot while was there.

    Cons

    They need a little more direction. If they took the time to rely on the experience of what most of the employees brought to the table then things would be taken more serious.

    Advice to Management

    Tap into your experienced employees. The culture is still developing.
