    I have been working at GlobalSign full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office a really nice atmosphere, people are free and trusted to work hard and ideas are listened to. Before working here I read a few bad reviews on Glassdoor and realise now they are primarily from the Japan/US office about management but as far as I can tell these problems are long over. The global offices work seamlessly together and there is a opportunity for travel. We get good work benefits and packages as well...

    Cons

    Cubersecurity here is majorly important as we are a certificate authority. The annoying thing about this is a lot of logins, passwords, smartcards, tokens, authentication, encryption and a lot of help needed from IT to get stuff done. Personally think we need a bigger IT team to help but in general they try really hard to make sure you and your systems are up and running. It can just be a drag sometimes working with so...

    Pros

    Colleagues: everyone is highly intelligent, ambitious and striving to improve the business.

    Cons

    This used to be a good company to work for with very supportive management. Currently the company have been moving backward in their way they do things.

    Advice to Management

    They are so high on themselves that they won't listen to the minions below them. They should be humble to learn from their mistakes.

    I worked at GlobalSign full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Environment, nice cafeteria with good ambience. Accessibility near metro station. Cab facility.

    Cons

    Poor and unprofessional attitude of management is stopping growth of this company. A lot of politics is brewing in this company. Visionless and impatient management. Micromanagement at all levels, starting from GM to Manager level. They will stifle your growth. Some people in management enjoy full benefits like travel anywhere they like, no punctuality and highly irresponsible mindset. The top management lacks respect...

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run a company professionally. Respect your employees, treat them like assets and not liabilities. The company’s presence is because of its employees, they worked hard to make it grow. When your company grows then you throw them, this is highly unacceptable. The more older you are, the less respect you start getting.

      I have been working at GlobalSign full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The people make GlobalSign a great place to work at, I’ve learned so much and had great support and kindness from people all around the world working here in a truly global company. PM leadership team Rocks! Further, and perhaps most importantly, the vision of the company working on innovative cloud PKI products is very exciting.

      Cons

      Hardly anything objectionable, normal growing and shifting minor pains.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on focusing on the vision and mission of the company, and keep up the investment in your strategic initiatives which I believe will continue to give GlobalSign a competitive edge in the trusted ID / PKI market for the next 5 years.
