I finished school and it wasn't until was a few months employed for a major north american cyber security player I realized how flawed companies can really be.
When best practice is implemented properly and the company is managed properly and everyone is treated with respect you can't go wrong, but sadly this is not the case in the industry, it is quite the opposite.
Not to mention mismanagement and negative biases which shouldn't exist from the beginning. I don't want to say too much but trust me when I say it can be a real let down for white hats trying to pursue their career.
For example just look at Hacking Team, such a disappointment, on more than 1 level.
tl;dr - I'm a hacker who stops hackers for a living and the industry is flawed.
Can anyone else share my pain?
