    I have been working at IOActive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Three characteristics make IOActive an interesting and often fun place to work: 1. The deep knowledge and broad experience of the security consultants; 2. The ability to do silicon-layer security research which AFAIK is unmatched outside of government, and 3. A family feel to the place. This is NOT the cookie-cutter grind mill stable of security consultants that some other companies are.

    Cons

    As a small company, IOActive must continue to improve on the core business processes that will make it truly world class.

    Pros

    The IOA environment allows good ideas to flourish and efforts to be noticed as improvements are being effected in every function of the organization. Very rewarding to see clear successes driven by personal, team and cross-functional! IOA culture is changing for the better to have more input from stakeholders before decisions are made. The international work environment adds to the complexity and variety of everyone's work and interactions.

    Cons

    Requires effort to get to know everyone well, as many on team are located internationally or work remote.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're headed the right direction.

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

    Pros

    I'm a pretty simple guy. I like to break stuff and IOA lets me. With so many hackers around it can be tough to keep up but thats part of the fun. We get to play and win CTF games and do cool research.

    Cons

    It is not always easy to get a visa to go where I want to go but Marty always does good work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the technical. I am glad we are not doing PCI anymore!!!
