    I worked at Infoblox full-time

    Pros

    Nice Building. Decent salaries. Some departments allow for flex hours. Dinner for those that work late.

    Cons

    High turnover. Low morale in some departments. Constant finger pointing. Some departments seem to constantly demand overtime from their teams. Let's hope they turn this around with the new management they brought in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders – not titles. Inspire your teams. Respect your teams.

    I worked at Infoblox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice building, a lot of amenities, and most people are very talented and work really hard.

    Cons

    More than 1/2 of the management (exec or VP) tends to hire friends without the right skills. The communications are 1-way from top. Pay is not fair. Same position can have huge different in salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends and only hire the best of the best.

    Pros

    Great talented team of people, benefits, perks

    Cons

    Lack of direction from the top, confusing messages from management. New senior management has brought lack of clarity and confusion on different levels. Not sure what is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is alignment with company vision and direction among all levels of management

    I worked at Infoblox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was good. Profitability is unquestionable good with the SW product. BOD selected a CEO with big company experience needed to grow the company past it's current point of stagnation.

    Cons

    Company performed poorly during my tenure affecting employee bonus' which was their big pitch when I joined and my motivation for joining. No growth opportunity for employees professionally. Company is very cylo'ed and works ineffectively together amongst departments. The company needs vision to grow. Many employees are not the best candidates for the position making your job more tedious. Lack of performance is accepted by select Mgmt teams.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower levels of your teams and do not function in total departmental cylos. Make a decision and move-on!

    Pros

    Experience with large scale DNS deployments, and Linux platform. You will learn how to play politics and master the art of setting expectations.

    Cons

    Your opinion doesn't matter. Old timers and management run the show. If you are late few minutes after 9:30am, your boss might call you. Everyone in engineering is "asked" to work late and they are rewarded with free dinner if they stay after 7pm.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the footsteps of your CEO and fire yourselves...

    Pros

    Experienced and high caliber employees with some great managers

    Cons

    No corporate vision or strategy. Every decision is an emotional reaction based on any feedback. No leadership or guidance from executives, who spend their time taking pot shots at each other, and causing churn through the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Define and articulate a clear vision and improve the ability to execute

    I worked at Infoblox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A few years ago, Infoblox was a good place to get established if you were starting a new career direction. The company does a good job of trusting subject matter experts and putting them in places where they can make a difference. At Infoblox, it is easy to mold your responsibilities around areas and challenges that interest you. Many employees did well during and after the IPO.

    Cons

    Many of the best team members have left. Business success is achieved at the expense of personnel happiness. Hiring efforts are attracting B and C players. HR works for the company rather than the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to address inequality issues and help long time employees feel valued. Need to make career advancement paths clear for existing employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Co-workers are nice. My manager is very nice to work with. They have happy hours on Friday.

    Cons

    Not the director. The co. does not treat everyone nearly equal in terms of stock options, job assignments. When the new director came, he brought his own people. The work for old timers got shifted away.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to the people who have been there for a while.

    Pros

    Good colleagues trying to make the best out of a bad situation HQ offices are nice, plush and have free drinks and snack stations

    Cons

    Bad management and far too many layers of management Management unable to make any decisions, short or long term Too many policies, procedures and political mind games Internal staff overlooked for promotion, company too busy hiring new staff keeping the head count up to be concerned about existing staff HQ used to be buzzing, people around 24/7, you’re now lucky if there is anyone in HQ after 6pm or at weekends

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair, or a backbone, recognize your current staff Take the company private again, rebuild the culture that has been lost

    Pros

    Most people are smart and multi-tasked. They are easy to work with and don't mind to work overtime, overnight or even over the weekend to achieve the goal.

    Cons

    60+ working hours per week and management is expecting you to check emails 365/24/7. No 100% personal time during PTO. They need you to bring laptop or check email when you are OOO. Pay is 10-15% below market price. Wasting $$$ on luxious parties or giveaways instead of giving people a reasonable raise. As long as you can BS or kiss ass, then you will get promoted or raise in short period of time without any achievement. Life is not fair @ Infoblox.

    Advice to Management

    Please open your eyes.
