    Excellent job satisfaction in Sales Engineering, limited opportunity for advancement

    Sales Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsTruly stellar work experience (likely team/geography dependent), very interesting and challenging job. It's easy for a motivated, personable engineer to gain enormous independence - produce results and you can truly manage your own time. Every day is a little different, job is roughly 70% technical, 30% business. Pay is a little > than industry average, and benefits are very good. Senior Management loves SE's. Frequent face time with CEO, who is visionary, and capable of detecting, admitting, and correcting his own mistakes. That's important and somewhat rare in top leadership IMHO.

    ConsThere really isn't much of a career path if you don't want to be an Account Manager, and the company is very tight with stock grants. This may be mostly a reflection of the size (2013 Q2 Market cap of 1B, 350M rev, 1k employees). One employee mentioned politics and I don't disagree, I've seen it. It would be best if a small number of long term managers moved on, but in my role and location I'm largely unaffected.

    Advice to Senior Managementtwo words. stock grants. you don't need to break the bank, but some noticeably increased recognition of this kind to top SE's would likely improve retention, though I admit it's already pretty good and I'm unlikely to leave in the next 3 years.

    Good company to work for

    Principal Support Engineer (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsExcellent work life balance, and good company to work for. Most of the employees continue to work for long. Never seen a lay-off happening, pretty secured work place.

    ConsAs in any companies, depends on the manager you report to. But the company culture, policies and compensation are nice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHope this continues as-is

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
