    I worked at Tenable full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A salary and training resources.

    Cons

    There are really what everybody has mentioned already. Before you join the company ask yourself if it is worth for you to do so, it might be but take into consideration all bad previews. There are not fake. I learned about it hard way. Forget about work-life balance, you will not be getting days off after weekend shift or working during Bank Holiday. You will get money though. You will be asked to work over hours too. Then employees that will be working over hours will have better statistics which is look better compared to those that do not work over hours. And statistics is what you are there. Even when you are off, you will be getting cases, since the idea is that will will come from your holiday on a given day. So going on holiday is not a good idea either, since you will constantly getting cases even when not at work, just to find out that a day before you got 15 cases or so. The company tries to employ as few employees as possible... During my time there one year. I had 4 managers. During one years 4 colleagues left out of 14 or so. When you join the company and meet people that have been there longer than 2 years, there are not many of them, have respect for them, they have managed all what you will see in bad reviews. Before you join the company ask somebody that interviews you about rotation. AVOID this question if you want to get the job, the interviewer with certainty will not know how to answer this question, or if answers, you can compare that what I have seen, it has not changed really for years. I will just include subjects of other posts, just in case they might disappears one day. -"Don't even touch with a 100 feet long stick" -"Horrible place to work" -"A new low" -"Avoid at all costs, you have been warned........" -"Horrible" -"Terrible Culture" -"One, big disappointment!" - "eh" -mismanagement of talent and fear based management. -"Political" -"A Smoke Screen" -"Listen to the bad reviews. They are not fake." -"Company Culture...Not So Good" -"Nobody is happy"

    I worked at Tenable full-time

    Pros

    Office location, salary and commissions

    Cons

    That this company is a bad place is an understatement. This place is so bad that you will be connecting with other people that had left before you just to check that the experience was even real. AND IT WAS!.. bullied, micromanaged, intimidated, isolated and screamed up by management. Don't join this company even if salary and compensation seem attractive. If you do join because you need the job, make sure you keep safe the probation letter (as you passed) and an employment letter. Tenable will not give referrals unless you are tight with management.

    I worked at Tenable full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tenable has grown a lot over the last couple of years and there are a lot of exciting projects to work on and contribute too. If you're willing you'll be able to work into a lot of things, people are receptive of new ideas although from Ideation to Execution that's a different story. Teams are good and people has always been friendly and approachable. - Good careers path - Good learning if you're willing to challenge yourself - Play around with multiple technologies Challenge the status quo, share ideas and views and likely you'll be able to contribute even more, always recommend to reach out with a good feedback.

    Cons

    Overall my experience at Tenable was really positive, most of my cons are for higher management. - Supper Top Down directions. I felt like some times ideas were cut or you might never heard back. - Communication. I've noticed to many silos in different teams, and some times conflicting work does not get shared until it's too late unless anybody in the teams working is willing to reach out. Sometimes we knew about projects that were ongoing or impacting our workflows when they already started. - Higher management will not communicate the bad news and over communicate the good news. - HR did never did an exit interview when I left.
