Pros

* Excellent technology exposure
* Great people; strong engineering discipline
* Strong management/leadership
* Supportive delegation-oriented management
* Excellent compensation
* Reasonable work-life balance

Cons

* The occasional overly aggressive sales commitment
* Unclear engineering career growth path
* Some challenges around managing the cross-functional organization effectively

Advice to Management

* Too much divestiture? Shedding some of Stratton's half-baked content plays made sense but isn't shedding security services / identity protection service going too far?

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Supportive management, Work itself is challenging and you learn something almost everyday. Working with brilliant colleagues, excellent growth opportunities and attractive pay packages

    Cons

    Nothing much in terms or down sides. The only thing I could think of, and this could be true for almost any big company, is that there is a lot of process involved for any minute task, unlike in a startup where things are more agile and dynamic

    Advice to Management

    Only thing I could point is that VeriSign to my knowledge currently does not offer any free services to it's end customers / general public. I think this would be a good way to increase the company's visibility and credibility in public

  2. Little career growth, good benefits/work-life balance
