    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Proofpoint full-time for less than a year

    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.
