Not the worst place to work. Israelis have a different mind set and work ethic than Americans. They have three times more holidays than us but do not always respect ours, especially Christmas. Expected to work like a startup most of the time, although been around for 30 years.

Ok place to work. UK staff and India staff highly unqualified.
Network Engineer (Current Employee) – Redwood Shores, CA – March 11, 2017
No network security implementation within this environment made working here extremely stressful. UK managers have no clue of their environment.Daily issues with customers and networking within this environment. They employ broken but somewhat working platforms to host customers. Daily and hourly issues here.
Field Service Engineer and Tier II Support (Former Employee) – United States – January 28, 2017
I had a great time when I first started. internal politics and egos made the job frustrating as the company grew. The technology was interesting and the product was stable once it was configured correctly.
chief Bottle Washer (Former Employee) – Not in Israel thank my stars – January 12, 2017
* Company culture very strange (non US) * OT expected and required - poor work / life balance * Big on overseas outsourcing / no love for US whatsoever * Managers are micro managed and don't have IT skills * No sharing of information between teams - everyone "Guards the Gold" as they say. * Worst Knowledge base and software documentation on the planet.

Productive environment with a strong sense of clients satisfaction
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 11, 2016
Status reporting, resolving client issues, communicating with developers and business clients, analysis requirements, project documentation, and reviewing plans. Translating business requirements into functional and technical specification; organizing resources and software engineers in executing project functions; reviewing project process and assessing progress to manage project schedules.
Understanding the software project features, clarifying misunderstandings; analyzing client transaction data and resolving issues. Clients will make demands often expect results within short time periods. Adequate communication becomes imperative to managing expectation and avoiding project delays and derailments.
The hardest part is delivering bad news to a client when errors were made or project is delayed; balancing client expectations and technology commitment when the software product requires customization to meet client requirements outside product capabilities. The most enjoyable is reaching the client's satisfaction when the product finally delivers expected results.
Diversity of client types and variety of business needs
Tier 2 Technical Support and Project Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 31, 2016
I worked as a Tier 2 Support Engineer for 4 years and then as a Project Manager for 2 years. The first 3 years were very busy and I often worked 60-70 hours a week BUT so did my coworkers. And the environment and our team made it an awesome place to work. Then came the first management change and as things started to become less of a great team environment and more micro managed I transitioned into the role of Project Manager. In the new position there were wonderful challenges and a good environment until less than 6 months into that position there was another MAJOR management change. Things went downhill from there and the third CEO level management change was catastrophic for the atmosphere.
If you didn't answer emails, texts, or calls at any hour of the day you weren't giving 100%. Being an Israeli based company that meant that if emails came in at 3am MST you were still expected to answer immediately.
NO WORK-LIFE BALANCE no matter what their company mission statement says.
No work life balance, If you work 60 hours a week they expect 70, If you work 70 hours a week they expect even more
You worked hard but you played as well with this company. They appreciated their employees and made sure they were rewarded nearly on a weekly basis with either surprise snacks or lunches. I would gladly go back and work here.
Lead Customer Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 13, 2016
Employees are overloaded with work; Structure of company needs overhaul. Work/life balance needs overhaul. Need better training of job responsibilities and skills. If you work hard, you are expected to work even harder. No accountability fairness when measuring peers.

Short breaks, if any at all. Management is unskilled and don't care about change for the better.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 3, 2016
The current work environment is not conducive for ambitious, progressive, intellectually advanced professionals. There is plenty of room for improvement with a change in management, culture and vision.
Senior Applications Engineer (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – February 11, 2016
TYPICAL DAY AT WORK • Candid discussions with customers about their expectations and desires (regarding the product)
WHAT I LEARNED • Real world uses of the product • Discovering new capabilities of the product by pushing the limits of what is currently known; then sharing it with the rest of the company so others will know what it can now do
MANAGEMENT • Gives me the freedom to find new uses of the product • Gives me the opportunities to expand my knowledge of the product
MY CO-WORKERS • Really smart team mates • Always happy to share their knowledge and experience
BIGGEST CHALLENGE • Keeping the customer absolutely thrilled with the product • Keeping the customer truly satisfied with my consulting services
FAVORITE PART • Achieving the absolutely thrilled and completely satisfied customer
Being part of a team/company delivering a product that customers really want to use
Turnover/attrition -- very sad to say good-bye to colleagues who have decided to move on, and not so easy to train new hires (requires lots of patience)
