Fun to work
Volunteer (Current Employee), BurnleyJune 23, 2015
Pros: Work experience
Cons: Little to do
Learned how to provide emotional support without giving too much support so that I am not in they face. You learn that at times when they are sad they need they own space to come to terms with what has happened. Hardest part of the job is having to put a straight face on when they telling you they story and especially when you can relate to it.

Highly unsafe company to work with
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Noida, UPJune 21, 2015
Pros: Small organization - You know everyone around
Cons: No growth, no opportunity and no job security
No growth, no opportunity and no job security - That's SafeNet for you. Adding to the woes is a management that does little to take care of its employees.

Systems Engineer/Integration & Test Engineer (Former Employee), Torrance, CAJune 18, 2015
In general management is good, watch out for the bad ones...they are very bad. Environment is good, when there is enough work. When work gets scarce, beware a knife in the back (even from those you considered friends).

Security Supervisor (Former Employee), Germiston, GPMarch 13, 2015
Pros: no free lunch
Cons: long hours
Typical day at work began at 05H45
I've learned how difficult it is to work with people.
Management was so accommodating and considerate.
They began by giving me cold shoulders but after sometime they got so supportive.
To learn everyone's behavior.
Seeing my co-worker happy every day when they report for duty

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 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.

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 process, low employee motivators or incentives – more... 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.

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.

Challenging and productive work environment
Configuration System Manager (Former Employee), Belcamp, MDNovember 20, 2012
Pros: ocassional free lunches and good work environment
Cons: long hours regularly required affeting family life
A typical day of work was interacting with quality, operations, engineering, and finance. Preparing data for release into the PLM system for contract manufacturers to pull as necessary.

Worked on a number of major projects used corporate wide. Successfully implemented new EBS and PLM systems regarding Configuration Management responsibilities.

Managed a group of 8 individuals located in India, Canada, – more... Maryland, and California. Wrote CM procedures used globally.

My co-workers were extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with.

The most difficult part of the job was balancing the projects while maintaining the day to day tasks.

The most enjoyable part was working with the various individuals in different departments and learning their requirements. I enjoy working and helping other departments to ensure the latest documentation and data is available. – less
