    Pros

    I came to Fortinet about 3 years ago. In those 3 years, I've found a place that I honestly enjoy coming in to every day.

    In the 3 years I've been there, I've found multiple opportunities for advancement, a relatively decent increase in salary, and a working environment that I've been able to customize to maximize my productivity.

    I've found that Fortinet has been incredibly accommodating to my unique and individual needs - if that means sometimes coming in late or leaving early due to life commitment... no problem. Get your job done, and do it well, and there's no edict to punch the clock.

    In our team, we have regular quarterly 'fun' events and dinners where we all just get out and do something fun... and in Vancouver, there's certainly no shortage of fun things to do every season.

    I gladly work extra hours (FTNT brings in dinner if you're working late) and the occasional weekend - by choice. I love what I do that much.

    If and/or when I move on to another company, I will be quite sad - but will look back at my time here with incredible fondness.

    Other "nice" things about working here: on-site fitness facility is great, weekly fitness classes paid for by FTNT, decent espresso/coffee machines, lots of smiling faces of every ethnicity you can imagine. Makes for a very diverse working environment.

    Cons

    Now, with the Pros being said, no company is great enough that some things couldn't improve. I'm sure even stalwarts like Google, Microsoft and Apple have places in which they could improve.

    Fortinet is still a young company. The transition from the "start up" mentality to a "corporation" has been bumpy at times. As a start up, it was clear FTNT made one of their biggest goals to become profitable as soon as possible (which is admirable compared to many other start ups who bleed money profusely)... but now that FTNT has established itself as a company with a very healthy balance sheet and a sizeable war chest, I think loosening the purse strings a touch would go a long way towards moving FTNT to the next level... but I think we're getting there. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I could offer one piece of advice, it would be simply to remember that we're just not a small company anymore. Over 2,000 employees (and growing at a pace that far outstrips other companies) is a remarkable achievement.

    I'm proud to call myself a Fortinetter.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot here and the work is very interesting, at least in my position.
    lots of potential to proceed.

    Cons

    The benefit packages are not so good, lots of co-workers speak Chinese, works not distribute evenly to the team members/teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The productions line spans to much, should focus on several exceptional products to get more market shares, provide more internal training.
