    I have been working at Lumension Security (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really friendly Managers, VPs and colleagues. Can easily strike up a conversation with anyone without worrying about the professional hierarchy. Great place to work and learn.

    Cons

    Once you're done with your work, it's pretty repetitive. Also huge office with very less people. Travel commute takes up most of the time.

    I worked at Lumension Security full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Director-level people and below were nearly all great. Product is pretty cool, and subject matter experts were really knowledgeable about some very interesting stuff.

    Cons

    Former exec team was toxic, to say the least. I hope the current exec team is better, but after leaving I heard only negatives. To be fair, it's been a while since I checked in.

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

    Pros

    The people are absolutely wonderful to work for and with. Free lunches every other Wednesday, free soda fountain/popcorn machine in the break room.

    Cons

    Small company, not much room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Engineering needs to be held more accountable and pushed harder for deadlines. Perhaps more fresh blood should be brought in to revitalize the ENG department. If you are going to sell a product it should be in full force within your own company and individuals should not have a choice to participate in the using the software.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Work from home
    Lunch brought in every other week

    Cons

    Priorities change on a dime, so projects constantly get derailed. Senior management is not building an organization...it's simply slapping a product together in hopes that someone will buy the company so they can cash in. Management says they want to retain good talent, but you have to fight tooth and nail for all forms of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nickel and dime people on compensation.
