    I worked at IOActive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that I saw. Although, if you like your work parties to include gallons of booze and strippers, I guess that's a plus.

    Cons

    Office culture: immature boys club (run by a CEO who needs constant babysitting) that requires lots of booze, strippers and catering to in the most unprofessional way. I was offended within weeks of working here by some of the cooler talk I heard (guys talking about strippers, sexual jokes, etc.) Management turnover is ridiculous and a clear red flag that this company is part of something dysfunctional. The managers who stay micromanage to an impossible degree and have no communication skills. They don't take ownership or encourage continuing education. And, if you are not one of the hackers, you don't matter to them. You are disposable and treated as such. This place might be right for young hackers who want to break stuff and get paid for it then go to a happy hour every night with their boss and get plowed. Otherwise if you are an administrative professional of any kind, you just have to sit back and wade through the dysfunction and demeaning work conversations because there is NO HR department and the management doesn't care about HR issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't take any advice because they are living in their own messed up world (or dark boozy basement) and seem to be quite happy slogging through as long as they get short term kudos.

    I have been working at IOActive full-time

    Pros

    Outstanding company! Progressive!! Work Hard/Play Hard mentality! Well focused management! Strong goals, stronger ethics!! Everyone always will to help and assist if you ask. Strong availability for growth within the company as it is getting bigger!! Gartner recognition!!

    Cons

    Those that are not willing to ask for assistance or help do not get it. Looking for adults that are professionals and have the attitude to do what it takes to win and be the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire what YOU perceive to be the best!
