    I have been working at Radware full-time

    Pros

    Some of their products (DP) work very well. The other ones are terrible and doing a POC will kill it.

    Cons

    Super controlling management. Terribly ineffective management in Canada. In the US and Israel, all decisions are taken by Roy, without consultation. The strategy is the reflection of a 1 man vision. And that man has been known to be wrong...a lot

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company or leave it.

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot of technologies and worked on a very complex project.
    The do recruit fresh graduates (but only because experienced engineers don't to work here).
    The only reason to come here if you're a fresh graduate trying to get first job in the industry.

    Cons

    No salary hikes, bonuses, options.
    No work ethic. Extremely low code quality and testing standards.
    Bad team management - no new employee guidance, constantly looking for your mistakes, no career path/professional development plan.
    No work/life balance. Very long hours just for the sake of it.

    I worked at Radware full-time

    Pros

    DefencePro is a good product. It's really expensive, but it works well.

    Cons

    47% turnover in Sales and SE's every year.
    The people who have been there for awhile have been there for a long long time, everyone else gets rinsed out every year.
    Lots of promises about long training before being thrown to customers. Don't believe it.
    Sales Leadership doesn't understand long sales cycles involved in such an expensive product.
    Professional Services is understaffed.
    There are no quoting tools.
    Sales in North America is run by remote control from Tel Aviv by Roy Zisapel the CEO who doesn't understand the North American market.
    North American Sales leadership are clueless. I feel particularly sorry for the folks in Canada! You should sit through some of there conference calls. You will want to kill yourself after the first few minutes.
    Currently going through a crisis as they switch from selling appliances to selling cloud services.
    Huge drop in revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Get some decent sales leadership in North America. The current crew are incompetent. Tell the CEO to run the business and butt out of day to day sales.

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

    Pros

    Products and technology are second to none in the industry. Solid customer base in the DDoS space. Very smart though under utilized internal resources and product evangelists. Top level management is great, mid level is suffering.

    Cons

    No sales and engineering/professional services alignment. Constant turnover. Company is very engineering driven, but only pays attention to the largest customers. There is a great deal of inside/outside sales team fragmentation, competition, and animosity which can deteriorate an organization from within. No brand awareness or marketing spend which leads to lack of customer access. No urgency to grow business, company seems to be stuck in a rut. Make sure any comp plan promises you receive are in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Align Engineering/PS to each sales team organization so customers aren't suffering and leaving or looking at other solutions. Need better pre-sales engineering and post sales assigned to accounts for retention. Quick to sell and on to the next customer. Need more customer outreach, existing customers don't know what company does, let alone net new customers. Need more name awareness and access.
