Hi guys, I recently interviewed and accepted a job offer as Help Desk Specialist for Prolexic Technologies.
They seem to be on a hiring spree and are supposedly big in the InfoSec world. It would seem like a great place to learn and move up. They are also big on employee training which is a plus. I was wondering what your guys' views were on this company.

    Congrats... You may want to check Glassdoor.com for reviews. As Help Desk you can only grow from it and gain knowledge. If it sucks, commit to a year or so and move on.

    Prolexic is probably the major player when it comes to DDoS mitigation services. You have other players like Verisign and Neustar as well, but I think Prolexic has the most well-known name in the space.

    Will you be working in the Hollywood, FL office? I've always wondered what kind of set up they had there. I've talked with their ops people before but never asked.

    Today was my first day! Its freaking amazing. Everyone there is a techie!; from the web dev team, to the programmers, to the SOC, to the NOC, to NetEng and SysEng. I never knew working at a tech company was like this. everyone is NOT clueless like everywhere else.

    I was even given a Macbook pro, and 16gb ram and a 256gb ssd!(i was even given a drive adapter to take the dvd drive out and use the original drive as extra storage in the bay)

    There is alot to learn and get accustomed to as it looks like I'll be doing a little bit of everything. I'll work with different departments.
    I'm going to put off studying for a week or two to focus on this new position.
    My dept even has a VM lab. Theres also cisco gear flying around for everyone to use!

    Oh and today was free catered food day!

    It looks like there is so much room to grow with this company. Things are looking good for the sudden move from NYC. Prolexic is growing at a very fast rate and I wish to be part of it! icon_cheers.gif

    Sounds like a great place to work. My only experience with them is blocking a few ranges of their IPs for our customers. They were being hit pretty hard from that address space and it was using up all their WAN bandwidth. Not sure if that ever got resolved though.

    Yup! it was big talk. we have some serious clients who I cant exactly name but during such events the entire SOC is on lock down. no one moves, no one leaves, exits enter etc. Its a great company. Im already entering commands into switches!
