Company Review and Testimonials

The first major challenge I found with the website was the difficulty a job seeker has in finding any information about open positions. In fact, there is no job board for someone to see which positions are available. On the company’s Career page, it says:

“If you would like to join us, apply to open opportunities, or fill out the form below and one of our staff members will get back to you if an opening arises that matches your skill set.” (Emphasis added.)

The problem is, there is not a visible or apparent link that leads to the open positions the company offers. The only option available to job seekers is to fill out the job form, which is a mini-job application that requires a manual input of your resume. There is no option to upload a prepared resume.

Overall, it is obvious that the main purpose of the company’s web page is to appeal to companies and clients who are seeking CyberSecOp’s services. I have no doubt that there are rewarding careers to be had with this company. However, a job seeker may be frustrated by the inaccessible open positions.

Company Testimonials

The website for CyberSecOp does not offer testimonials of current or former employees.

However, the company has three reviews on Indeed, which rate the company at a respectable 3.7 out of 5 stars. The three categories that rated the highest were Work-Life Balance (4.7), Pay & Benefits (3.7), and Job Security & Advancement (3.0).

From those three reviews, the employees most liked the:

  • “General feeling of work happiness”
  • “Time and location flexibility”
  • “Sense of belonging”

The areas that need improvement, according to the reviews, were:

  • “Fair pay for the job”
  • “Support from [the] manager”

Let it be known that the most recent review was posted in March, 2020 and the employee rated the company at five (5) stars.

Contact Info

The only way I can see for a job seeker to contact the company is via the Contact Us webform, which is the same one that requires resume information.

All of the numbers listed are for customers who are seeking CyberSecOp’s services. There is also a highly persistent chat bot that pops up on every page, which may serve as an alternate means of communicating with the company.
