Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA

I have been working at ArcSight

ProsNice Co-workers
In today's economy - salary is fair market
free lunch on wed
flexibly vacation/time off

ConsSupport Management takes the approach that you need to sacrifice your life for the company
Support Management does not consider the employees need for advancement and growth
Support Management only sees you as an asset for business needs
Support management squeezes the most out of you
Support Management takes an elite approach / favoritism towards promotions
If you are in a particular division of support - you may have a less stressful job - others are constantly stressed
Recognition is not about technical merit but on your ability to kiss-ass to management

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more headcount to reduce the unneeded stress
Listen to the needs to the employee - growth - even horizontal moves are ignored
Do not be in denial - almost everyone is looking to escape, however, the economy is not good - don't abuse the situation and promote growth and in return receive loyalty and excellent work attitudes

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Best positions have "VP" in the title.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA

I have been working at ArcSight

ProsThe Company has catered lunch on Wednesdays. The workers are friendly.

ConsDirector's like to yell, unpleasant and unprofessional.
Workers are warned not to approach other Department Manager's because they might have a temper tantram.
Some staff members lack very basic computer skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat both consultants and employee's with respect. It is unproductive to have "Director" or "Managers" that are preceived to have so much power and control that everyone else needs to walk on egg shells in order to get their work done. This is a small company with to many back stabbing and unhealthy management. They should clean house starting with the Director's. They should offer free training to their all staff on how to use MS Office Suite.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
