Good benefits, bonus program, work/life balance, people, and perks. Lots of opportunities to learn, especially if you're interested in all the different things Blue Coat does (and there are many). Lots of activities, free lunches, etc.
Everyone is doing multiple jobs. Upper management are so focused on keeping costs down that they refuse to staff most departments at reasonable levels. Everyone who writes code has to work in an extremely restrictive coding environment (remote in to a restricted VM even when onsite. Top-down, authoritarian culture. Few career path options. Very little mobility.
Advice to Management
Look beyond the IPO and hire more people so you don't burn everyone out. Encourage bottom-up innovation. Try to promote from within.
