Productive and fast pace environment
Check Point Diamond Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON23 January 2018
Fast pace environment, lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

Enjoyable at lower positions in the company working as lower level engineers, but various aspects become stressful as the technical engineers do not have control over some aspects/deadlines that need to be met.
Pros
Free lunches, training provided for various subjects
Cons
Salary very low for the available positions, even when advancements are available

Great working environment but it is a little to no job security
Network Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 February 2016
It is a refreshing environment to work in, it does not offer job security for a 12 month period which is not encouraging for career professionals.

Fast Paced High Learning Environment with countless opportunities
Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa13 July 2015
The people who don't make it in this position are those who handle stress and complex issues poorly. Check Point is great to work at if you are a problem solver. The chances and opportunities to grow and advance from here far outweigh any cons that there are in my personal opinion.

Everyone is here to help the people that have worked here for a long time know that you don't get anywhere in this job by yourself and that you need to ask others for help to do the best you can and it breeds a wonderful team enviornment
Pros
Paid Certifications, free lunch, countless opportunities
Cons
Stressful, fast paced, hard
