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


    - Mature products (Nessus, SecurityCenter/, LCE)
    - High achieving and knowledgeable engineers
    - Experienced lower management
    - Supportive lower management
    - Benefits exceed Big N companies (slightly above-average salary, top 1% health insurance, above average vision and dental insurance, insane amount of PTO, work from home flexibility, generous stock plans, generous grants, partial tuition reimbursement, some discounts on major retailers)
    - Opportunity for growth (software engineers)
    - Excellent hardware for developers
    - Innovation Day (1 day a sprint to contribute to your team's product with what you think could improve the customer's experience)
    - Excellent company hackathon-vacation (INIT)
    - Engineers get 1 paid conference to attend anywhere in the world (management approval)
    - Abundance of parking spots
    - Abundance of snacks, coffee, lattes, etc
    - Abundance of catered food budget
    - Excellent area with high quality restaurants and nearby food options for lunch
    - New building soon in 2020


    - Extremely complex software not for the faint of heart
    - Lack of spaces for developers to brainstorm and peer-code
    - Not enough fun things to do when taking coding breaks
    - Lack of whiteboards and whiteboard walls for engineers
    - High expectations for features (some feature bloating)
    - Frequent upper management changes
    - No Wikipedia page for our multi-billion dollar company (like, seriously?)
    - Video game collection is lacking

    Advice to Management

    - Focus more on your engineers and their concerns with the codebase
    - Feature bloating contributes to less time to fix legacy code (this turns into major and critical CS tickets in the future)
    - Need to be more laid-back and fun to attract younger more talented developers (especially if you want them to stay)

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tenable in March 2019.


    First interview was over the phone, and it was one to two question. Beyond that it was just about talking about the company and what it does. In the second interview revolved around talking about your experience.
