      Pros

      Products - market leader Co workers Snacks Just typing at this point to hit the minimum amount of words.

      Cons

      Company doesn't invest in their ppl - only cares about gettung to a billion dollars. They don't care how or who gets them there. Good talent has left within last year. No 401k match Constant territory changes - no motivation for sales teams Culture is toxic - lots of back staving Everyone in fear on being on chopping block now that everyone isn't close to hitting quota.

      Pros

      Proofpoint has far exceed my expectations as a company. From the leadership to the team collaboration, you won't find a better place to work. This is a place you can call home. Many employees have been here a long time which allows deep integration into business and the ability to create pathways to success for others. You will have the opportunity to work with top though leaders - smart, collaborative and willing to share! Culture is conductive to creating friends and mentors with lots of opportunity to get involved in the business. With Leadership continuing the momentum of employee engagement around issues like sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and making work meaningful really excites me for the future.

      Cons

      No company is 100% perfect. We are growing, learning and evolving daily. That always comes with certain hurdles. Leadership is big on keeping everyone informed. It's important to remember not to get hung up on what's changing and focus on what is progressing. I am proud to work for Proofpoint. I really do not see any cons!

      Good company, Good product, Good Benefits, Low Commissions

      Pros

      I loved the Benefits with Proofpoint and the product was great. Decent selling process and decent network.

      Cons

      It was difficult to outbound into new prospects because they either had a solution they were happy with or would have a project already on the table (which we were usually considered). No focus on quota attainment (and very few actually hit quota). All they cared about was if you hit your "commit" number but that doesn't help your commission check to have lower goals than your quota

      Solid company with great managers

      Pros

      For the most part the managers at every level are very good. I’d go as far as saying they actually provide great value to both employee’s and customers. Wellness days are cool. Free day off every quarter. Unlimited PTO Pay

      Cons

      Health insurnace Retirement Glass door states I must list 5 cons. There are not that many. For a profitable company retirement match is garbage. Benefits are less then ideal if you have a family.
