Productive work place with friendly coworkers.
Internship (Former Employee), Erie, PAJune 4, 2014
A typical day at work involved opening incoming mail, recording client intake and exiting of clients, records management, copying and faxing documents, and entering payroll information into payroll books, and making sure all outgoing mail was ready to be mailed the following day.
I learned about the importance of keeping accurate Accounting procedures – more... for a company. My coworkers were friendly and eager to help when needed. The hardest part of this job was getting the employees to turn their time cards in on time.
The most enjoyable part of this job was meeting people from the other departments. – less

Executive Assistant/Mobile Services Administrator (Current Employee), MarylandMay 5, 2014
Pros: work from home on occasion
Cons: no opportunity to move up
I enjoy working at this company but there is no place to move up. I have applied for positions that I am qualified for only for the position to be hired from outside the company. I just finished my degree, have multiple talents and abilities, and need to be making more money. I need something that will give me the ability to move up in the company.

Complete misfit for silicon valley - Too bureaucratic; antique IT
Former Employee (Current Employee), redwood cityFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: friendly teams sympathetic about their common enemy (upper mgmt)
Cons: mgmt culture, it, infrastucture, corp stinginess, decision process
My team - Great people, ambitious and meticulous, hungry about success, ready to do whatever to succeed. A couple bad thoughts by long-standing job-insecure folks but not a big deal. Its not an ideal world after all :)

Corporate Culture - No transparency from executive and upper mgmt, very sick hierarchical management style, slow approval and decision – more... process, low employee motivators or incentives if not the friendly team, age-old policies with exceptions for politicians. Corp culture encourages ppl to have their own groups and lobbying leaders.

IT - SHAME!!! They haven't changed a word in their IT policy guide in last 20 yrs. On top of it - Redwood City office is just an appendage, and even the smallest thing have to be approved, literally 'shipped' from east coast.

Technology investment - Much of the focus internally has been (at least then) on cleaning up the company and putting it up for a better price, than positioning it for a leadership role in the market. That said, there is absolutely no drive in that direction, no conversations or discussions happen that way. Many competitive new hires either reneged or resigned, and 'run of the mill' remained.

Overall - It was a good company that had a great expertise around its core competence. But then bad things happened on non-tech side and currently being cleaned-up. No chance of innovation under current investors.

Each individual team is great but just got worn out 'coz of the mgmt resistance over new initiatives. Wait up for 1-2 yrs - some products may jettison into different companies, and eventually SafeNet may find its right investors who believe in technology potential of a tech-product than operation potential. – less

Lead Generation (Current Employee), Redwood CityFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: bad communication
Learned a lot of great sales strategies. Had fun at the sales kickoff out in Washington D.C. Sentinel Cloud is a great product for reporting and analytics. Hardest part of job is to deal with the stress of redundency.

Company in transition with turnover abound.
Ex Employee (Former Employee), Belcamp, MDFebruary 9, 2014
While there had 7 bosses in 4 years. Company management always tried to bite more then they could chew. Tries to retain employees with high salaries not necessarily high talent.
