        "Walking Dead"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at WhiteHat Security full-time

          Pros

          Nice snacks, the new office is an upgrade, no more backflips

          Cons

          Stunning lack of innovation. The market has moved on to better tech stacks written in modern languages with built-in AI and machine learning. Growth has slowed as major customers leave for better tech or crowdsourcing. The management team has been built around yes-men (very few women) to the CEO with 0 to no security background. The last webinar by a Senior Product person on stats was a joke with no content or...

          Advice to Management

          Too late for advice. It does not matter. Hope that investors can at least get their money back. This was a high growth, high-value company. No longer

          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at WhiteHat Security full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          There are certain groups like sales, marketing, customer success and professional services who are great to work with. They are kind, motivated to help customers, and are helpful to other groups in the company. Marketing leadership did an outstanding job hitting the ground running and hiring great people to move things forward.

          Cons

          1. Leadership in product management has been enabled to treat others with disrespect and hostility. Their behavior has been tolerated even after numerous complaints from several people. The bullying needs to stop. 2. Product is at least 5 years behind the market, despite what they might tell you. Basic features are non-existent to compete against the market leaders. 3. Each product (DAST and SAST) are in completely...

          Advice to Management

          Start getting real about what’s in front of you. Question assumptions and biases. Trust but verify. If certain groups are deflecting onto other groups, chances are the ones deflecting are the ones who need scrutiny. Get rid of the bullies and toxic leadership. You did all that work to create a better culture, only to throw it out the window by keeping certain people in power. It’s a shame.

            Pros

            Overall great team while trying to cover up leaders' incompetencies

            Cons

            fake and unprofessional management team.

            I have been working at WhiteHat Security full-time

            Pros

            Extremely nice, helpful and savvy people that get more done with less people and meetings than the norm

            Cons

            Sometimes an extra set of hands would be nice but that's changing

            Advice to Management

            Since joining WhiteHat I seem to like it even more each day. I have been able to meet some great people and see organic collaboration on a daily basis. Full disclosure: I am a recruiter which I believe adds to the credibility of my review, not negates it. Why? Because morally I have a very hard time talking to candidates about leaving their current employment or not entertaining competing offers if I didn't believe in...

            A little unorganized when it comes to territories

            Organization of territories could be a little better

            Pros

            Solid products. Good brand name recognition. CEO is energetic and inspirational (at times). Marketing and Product Department are awesome.

            Cons

            - Constant employee turnover... still happening. Usually coincides with new Management. - Alot of deflection by saying "we are reorganizing" or improving and changing how we do things." - Some (not all) Senior Management are closed off and manage using fear. They only care about themselves. - Senior Management implements new processes and when they don't work blame employee adoption and will let go of supposed weak...

            Advice to Management

            Focus on retention, rewarding long time employees ($$) and new product development. Question Senior Management more in depth when their ideas fail and they have excuses ready. Don't believe Senior Management when they tell you "everything is fine." Make them prove it beyond the numbers. WhiteHat is a great company and has a passionate group of people who really care about the company and want to see it succeed. It would...
