  1. fun place to work and grow

    I have been working at Infoblox as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    close-knit community, very nice people, relaxed but productive culture, still relatively new and growing so can be hands-on with many people from all different rankings (but hardly notice these rankings)

    Cons

    lots of changes in short periods of time, still some processes that need to be tightened up

    Pros

    Great networking opportunities Still has that "small company" feel High pay (especially for an internship!) "Lunch & learn" events to raise awareness about other departments & their functionality Wide open doors - if I want to learn a skill or learn more about a particular role, I can schedule time with top level executives & work on projects for them The CEO of the company (Jesper Andersen) and founder (Stuart Bailey) made an effort to get to know the interns and talk to them. This was one of the coolest parts of the programs.

    Cons

    Initially management seems unorganized Slow IT turnover times (I've had a broken monitor for over a week - submitted a ticket for it via IT, but nobody has gotten back to me yet) Often expected to work overtime

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to have a firmer grasp on what they want their interns to do before we show up. Weekly meetings (like I have with my boss) are a nice touch - keep it up!

    Pros

    This is a very good company for people who are interested in networking. The company has products on DNS, DHCP, and network management. People like me who are interested in networking will have success working at Infoblox. In addition, the people who are working there are very talented and it is always good to be around the talented pool of people.

    Cons

    Seems like the company has not still grown up to the level of hiring new grads and mentoring them.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to make your company popular then you should give opportunities for new grads, maintain a balance between senior and junior people.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, autonomy in role and control over function, plenty of exposure to executive leadership team. Infoblox is a dynamic work environment and is currently working on "crossing the chasm." The transition from a small company to a larger, high-growth environment is not for everybody. However, if you want to have your ideas heard and contribute to a dynamic company--this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Strategy has seems less than solid over the last few quarters, but with a change in executive leadership (new product leader, new sales leader, new CEO) is driving better organizational alignment and uncovering new growth opportunities for the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing to get benefits equal to best-in-class offerings from other silicon valley organizations.

    Pros

    Infoblox is a very successful company with strong leadership. Contrary to some other observations on this site, Engineering is a well-managed environment where planning is very methodical. Like any startup there have been demanding periods, but the company has grown to the point that schedules are predictable, work/life balance exists, and individual achievement is rewarded. The company is innovating, and there are opportunities to (and funding for) work on new technology. The level of teamwork is very high, and the technical leads are highly skilled and very giving of their time. Having been present through many of the stages of evolution in this company, I can honestly say that the company has never been better poised for success.

    Cons

    The products themselves tend to be very mission-critical and there are some very large and demanding customers. This is both good and bad. From a company success perspective, this is a good problem to have. From a tolerance-for-error perspective, this can be challenging at times. That said, there is a high level of diligence in software design, implementation, and testing, and the product is fairly mature (i.e. pretty solid).
