    I worked at Fortinet

    Pros

    -People can bring dogs to work

    Cons

    -Often times not a fun atmosphere
    -Dull environment
    -Different sections of office very segregated without much interaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should find ways to get employees more excited. The atmosphere at the office gets very dull sometimes.
