    Pros

    Super smart engineers, agile/scrum environment, senior management very technical, teams get along well, nice offices, decent pay, good benefits.

    Pros

    Strong career mobility, solving a very important problem in the market! New website is a big positive move. Management is very dedicated and has grown the company to a substantial level now.

    Cons

    Could use more noise in the market to get the word out. Voltage is a well kept secret yet protects much of the world's data in some of the biggest companies in the world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep communicating with your people and give them the hard problems to solve.

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

    Pros

    Great technology and product. Good team of engineers and people who try to make things work. Very smart technical people.

    Cons

    Immature management who focus on short-term goals and don't know how to do business planning. Business and operations suffer as a result of a management team that has been in place for many years and keep making the same mistakes. They don't take advice from highly experienced and productive people - as a result, many good people exited the company. They cheat employees of their bonus payout if they get the chance.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the board is to change the entire executive management. Bring in people who have experience growing the company and know how to treat employees like the great assets they are, not as people you can keep squeezing blood out of.
