      Pros

      -Great team with good people. -The manager is great and provides advice to engineers to overperform in his daily routines, also listen to engineers proposals.

      Cons

      -From day 1 the team has been understaffed, there is always a promise from management that this will change, but it never happens. - There is not good communication between the members of the team in different locations. -Salary and benefits below the country expectations. - Career opportunities not remunerated.

      Pros

      The culture, team & workplace. Opportunity to travel.

      Cons

      No parking, depending on your role, management could be in the US so you may not get as much recognition or help as needed. But it isn’t an issue, more so a preference.

      Pros

      A lot has changed in here over the past 6-9 months. New leadership in North America, new product, new management in Cork, new programs, processes etc.... First thing to say is, change is good, change is necessary. Growth is painful, change is painful BUT nothing is as painful as staying still and not evolving and becoming a bigger, better, faster company. Other pro’s include: - Office space is awesome. - Culture is a great and the people are some of the nicest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of working with. - Commission and compensation is very aggressive. You can make a lot of money here. - Product is awesome and the market opportunity is HUGE. The outlook for AlienVault is positive....if you enjoy working in a fast paced organization, where hard work and ambition is rewarded then come work here with us.

      Cons

      The past is littered with con's and mistakes.... However, the leaders who are here now have seen from the passenger seat what happens when mistakes impact good people, good partners and business. We've moved into the driver seat now and those mistake won't be repeated!

      Pros

      A huge change in EMEA management in 12 months, with a large amount of internal promotion and growth. A clearer more defined goal for the future on both sides (sales and support) Doesn't have the structure or processes that established companies have, making it easier to get things done. A lot of autonomy in roles. All the usual benefits that come with tech companies, healthcare, snacks, wellness programs, new office.

      Cons

      Communication could be better in certain areas
