A user shares his disappointing experience on g2.com, "Netskope is entirely too difficult to manage. The level of granularity is seemingly too deep. For example, instead of whitelisting a domain, you have to white list specific pages. The overall performance is terribly slow. We understand that traffic must be proxied in order for the tool to work properly. However, there should be more servers/faster servers to handle the amount of traffic, and the frequency. There are also lots of loopholes. I was able to exploit a hole using a personal VPN extension; not even the full software package."
Former Employee - Sales says"If you work in inside sales, management is extremely micro, IMO. Do your research, look at who works for the company and for how long. There is a ton of turn over more than they would like to admit, IMO. I believe this is partially due to the lack of trust, respect, and overall atmosphere of this company, IMO. From what I read online, layoffs are happening, the dream of Netskope is becoming a thing of the past, IMO. CASB is no longer a a niche technology. This place is filled with big headed people, who think they don't stink, IMO. Bunch of small company people acting like they are big shots, IMO. Nice building in Santa Clara though. Hope it works out for ya post COVID, champs."
Current Employee - Marketing says"Marketing Bad leadership including appointing very unqualified marketers from Optiv that don't have the experience for the roles they are in"
Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer says"If you are willing to get into a company which pays peanuts and has a culture of "Hire and Fire". You are most welcome. In past 6 months, upper management has let go so many people (just to hire someone they have worked with in past) it's unbelievable. Along with this, recently they literally laid off people who had joined the company only 6 months before (i am talking about 10+ from HQ itself). Another point: Do your due diligence about negotiating stock price before you join. Recruiters will brag anything about the stock prices and valuations. As of May 2020 their stock price is $8.75 with $2.75B valuation (close to 300 million out-standing stocks)."
Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer says"The new engineering leader had fired the old employees at the higher management level, and brought in the folks from his previous company to replace them. There is no diversity at the engineering higher management level, and affected the company culture negatively. The engineering leader used foul language all the time in the meetings without caring if there were any female employees in the meeting. Not good for the company's brand. The so called architects had written such a poor code that it was hard to scale the services without rewriting them completely. The senior engineers did not care about the quality . The free food was not great as no attention was given to the employees' feedback."
Current Employee - Software Engineer says"1> For most of the folks it's their first job or the longest job in their career. So no innovation from them and they don't know the industry outside. The titles are so inflated that a staff engineers do not care for quality as they never got enough exposure. Some of the engineers grew up too fast to be eligible for their levels 2> Architects are mostly the first few employees who have written very poor code in the beginning and now blame it to others for their failures.Architects work in silos and don't drive any innovation across the company 3> Some of the projects are politically driven and not well thought 4> Free lunches are not great. No feedback asked about it. 5> Some sr engineers/architects are only networking experts and do not necessarily have good system design knowledge"
Current Employee - Software Engineer says"Bad organization and terrible work like balance"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Ceo is weak. Lacks leadership skills and is wishy washy and indecisive. Company is headed for a fall. schedules and sales being missed. Most employees unhappy just waiting to get out. culture is opposite of published, it is harrassing , non-collaborative, free for all. can never make it like this."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"- Closed culture - Below par compensation - Highly diluted stock"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"dot com... poor environment to work at"
Former Employee - Senior Sales Engineer says"Senior level management turned out to be a bunch of clowns. They care less about the people that works for them regardless of the huge effort people puts in to the task and mission. They let you build up then they take your work and do less of you taking credit. No credit nor recognition for major milestones achieved. Horrible company culture and worst experience by far in my 25 year career."
Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) says"Pros: You get to work in a cool office surrounded by some exceptionally smart and talented individuals Cons: - All managers play politics - layoffs constantly happening on a near monthly basis - management says they are "performance-related" - yearly salary increase has been put on hold for everyone in the company (not sure if this is true). - hiring is still going on amidst all of this Stability has been a challenge in recent months - codebase is too large and code quality issues aren't being addressed properly by QE leadership. This company has started sinking now, stay away if you can."
Senior Sales Engineer (Current Employee) says"I recommend Netskope, for the fact of being a promising company, for people who can afford high risk as still a small vendor and not solid when it comes to processes and management"
Director (Former Employee) says"It's a Sales driven startup with its fair share of growth challenges. The product provides a unique solution for enterprises using cloud apps and has a bright future."
Technical Project Manager (Former Employee) says"I absolutely enjoyed my time until I was laid off due to the pandemic. 30 days after receiving a more than solid review. My co-workers were fantastic to work with. Compensation, Culture, Work EnvironmentUpper Management"
