    Pros

    Smart, passionate team Strong product/solution Growing company on the right track towards IPO/acquisition Supportive VC investors

    Cons

    Like all companies, some individuals, including a few in exec leadership, don't live the values they expect of others.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone keeps saying what you want to hear doesn't make it good advice.

    Pros

    Your work makes a difference to the bottom line of the company. Face-to-face customer opportunity with a very big customers. Coworkers have a great depth of knowledge and always available for expanding your knowledge

    Cons

    Company is too small to survive periods of low sales. The ramp up and hire 100 employees only to lay them off a year later. And they have a repeated of history of doing this since their existence. Plan on working many hours. Not enough time to do everything well

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent is a requirement for every employee. Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Venafi is a wonderful company that cares about the individual "team members" and that works hard to make a company culture defined by the company's core values. All new employees participate in a three-day leadership seminar that teaches the core values and how to live them. Once you're on the team, you can expect to work with intelligent people who are at the top of their field. Specifically, in Engineering, we... have phenomenal talent working to solve difficult problems in the world of machine identity protection. Teams work together to solve these problems without the silos that sometimes occur in organizations. I love working for Venafi. It is a great company with great leadership and a bright future.

    Cons

    One benefit that would be a welcome addition would be 401k matching.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome. I've never worked in a company where the leadership sat in the same office space as the interns. Nobody has an office (not even the CEO), and that means management is available and aware of what's going on. Keep that up.
