    Manager

    Interviewing currently at Sophos for a technical architect position. Been a good experience so far, but I wanted to make sure I'm doing my due diligence. Glassdoor reviews seem decently favorable. Is there anything I'm missing? How's the compensation, career growth, company culture? Will it be the same as consulting or will I finally see some REAL WLB. Is senior leadership approachable or perched on a high floor with a view?

      Pros

      Benefits, ability to work remotely and efficiently, decent products

      Cons

      Political, not supportive professionally or personally - really depends upon manager, HR has a check list to do all the “right things” i.e. inclusivity and open culture, but it’s just to check off the boxes, it’s not genuine.

      Pros

      after Sophos bought out indianapolis security firm Rook Security, it tries to integrate an enterprise level approach, but there are growing pains in the process. management is not very active in the day to day role of analysts & can be somewhat fickle (don't expect much of a warm reception)

      Cons

      salary bands vary a lot, some making $60k others at $70k & on the high end $90k, all dependent on what you negotiate, so negotiate hard, they will not rescind the offer because the turnover rate is high, this is an immature program still developing & growing, sales are constantly hitting new marks and the interview is WAY harder than the actual job do not be intimidated !!! CORPORATE culture is way different than (better) than the actual small office (Rook) culture here
