    Pros

    people are usually nice and help each other for work. Also company is pretty successful because technology is leading market. it is also pretty good balancing life and work.

    Cons

    The pay is not good enough, especially the stock option. Company had 1:4 reverse split for stock option. But no reverse split for investor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should pay more attention to technology not just marketing and sales.

    Pros

    good company to work for, Friendly and effective working relationship between people and groups. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Merging into HP changed the company's culture to the style of a large corporation. Arcsight has lost some of the its attractiveness but added some other aspects.

    I have been working at ArcSight

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with a strong and professional sales team and with bleeding edge products with incredible grow opportunities. Excellent executive management team.

    Cons

    Poor communication within the company to remote workers. Management does not communicate well or create career growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to communicate from SVP level down to their respective teams. Communication is non-existant for the remote teams.
