    Fast growing , fast pace, mobility opportunities and professional growth are awesome.

    I worked at Varonis Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great solution. Fantastic benefits . They hire great like minded people who really get along and have fun together

    Yaki is a visionary and I was proud to have worked for him

    Cons

    Tough quotas. No strict policies around performance enforcement.

    Ive seen similar performing employees get totally different treatment-1 gets promoted to a non-sales role the other terminated

    Sales training is run by non-sales people and less than average performers

    Growth opps are real but not as plentiful as is messaged

    Fear of Loss motivation is rampant. Most ppl internally you will find resent that.

    Micromanagement - because its their way ( not always the right way)

    Some management has no place in leadership positions.

    HR deepy is rigid and each word should be chosen very very carefully when dealing with them. They will stab you in your back and they talk like lawyers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back real sales training like before you went public

    Review territories individually to set your own expectations.

    Why is sales person A who makes no dials selling more than B who prospects vigorously?

    I have been working at Varonis Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The product that I support itself has thoroughly impressed me, and an ever-growing customer base indicates a strong and stable company with plenty of room to grow. This fosters enthusiasm for my work.

    - Relaxed work environment. Immediate supervisors are very accommodating when the vicissitudes of life get in the way of the normal routine.

    - A focus on quality performance, with recognition for excellence, and plentiful guidance for those looking to improve. Opportunities to take initiative and distinguish oneself in the company.

    Cons

    - The "startup" mentality is still present despite the broad reach of the product. While this does lend itself to a relaxed atmosphere in the day-to-day that is undoubtedly a benefit, I have concerns that it inhibits a pro-active mindset, leading to reactionary behavior in dealing with problems that might otherwise have been avoided.

    - Have personally encountered and heard accounts of others regarding push-back and reluctance to engage over the topic of compensation, specifically in the form of raises.

    Pros

    If things are going well and you're making your number then life is happy, like anywhere I guess

    Cons

    Cannot trust HR. Metrics are monitored weekly! Madness

    Advice to Management

    Ensure HR act independently and do not report everything that's discussed in confidence straight to Senior Management. This is why employees leave!

    Pros

    Fantastic product and growing company with growth continuing among all teams. Varonis definitely has a heavy tendency to promote from within! Office locations are great and the ability to share knowledge seems to be second-to-none!

    Cons

    Not a con per say but could be pretty fast paced so not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward and upward !!!

    I have been working at Varonis Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great product, without sounding like too much of a cliche it really does sell itself a lot of the time. Cybersecurity is also a really good field to be in at the moment
    - Co-workers are all super friendly and helpful when you first join, great bunch of guys on the TDR floor.
    - Awesome incentives and company events, everyone got a $100 gift card for christmas and they're always holding pizza fridays, pie eating competitions and other fun stuff
    - Free food in the kitchen and the awesome location means there's lots of places to go nearby
    - Room for progression through the company if you're willing to work hard

    Cons

    - As a TDR you're truly at the bottom of the food chain. Expect to be virtually ignored by everyone who isn't either a TDR or a team lead.
    - TDRs are looked upon as a nusiance by a lot of the field sales reps who you're supposed to be supporting, it really is luck of the draw depending on your reps and your assigned territory to call into
    - You're not trusted enough to just get on with your job a lot of the time. Dial counts are watched incredibly closely and expect to be called into the Manager's office if you're five dials shy of your daily metric. You could book 10 meetings a day and still be called out for your dial count. I literally had to reply to a manger's email saying "I understand" to indicate that I've read the email. I had over four years sales experience at the time and found this incredibly frustrating.
    - Clear favoritism from certain members of the management team, people who were performing far worse than me were being eyeballed for promotion despite being there half as long.

    Advice to Management

    Give the TDRs some more leeway and let them get on with their jobs. Also co-ordinate TDR/SR relationships better because some SRs don't care at all.
