Proofpoint, Symantec, and Mimecast compensation.

Proofpoint maincpp
May 23, 2018 25 Comments

What is the TC (total compensation) for a software engineer at Proofpoint and other similar companies (Symantec, Mimecast, and others)?

Entry level? - <1 year exp + 2 past internships.
Junior level? - 2 to 3 years exp
Mid level? - 4 to 6 years exp
Senior level?

The level and the years may not match depending on how expert a person is but I am looking for a general range.

Thank you!

    At pfpt it's all over the map. Not sure what new guys are getting but in general pfpt pays one or two rungs down from fng. Stock has been a blessing and has gone through the roof. We are all doing very well.

      For new guys, would asking for 105k start be reasonable?

      My friend is leaving Proofpoint because of comp.

      105k at Symantec is doable. Base + stocks should get u there

      For engineering in Sunnyvale that sounds low end of average. But TC will be higher. Should get bonus and rsu. Not sure what rsu is for new guys.

      Because glassdoor compensation seems very low and maybe it isn't updated for these companies.

      They are accurate. Low end of avg is to be expected

      So is Paysa accurate for Symantec and Proofpoint? Hmm okay.

      How much are new guys making in your team?

    Nobody else pays that level except maybe a few mega unicorns. But we got lucky with the stock.

    Hmm looks like Symantec pays 10 to 15% less than Proofpoint.

    All in all, Symantec and Proofpoint can't be in the FAANG level (for cyber security market).

    Symantec pays more cash, less stock.
    We tried to pry a guy out of there but couldn't match his comp. Not sure if he is representative. No idea about mime, not hiring in Bay area afaik.

    Not sure. We aren't as standardized as the big guys.
