We move at the speed of light at AlienVault, so if you enjoy a challenge—as well as a fun work environment—you may just need to put your space suit on and head to the stars with us.

I have been working at AlienVault full-timePros
The leadership team, direction of the company, culture and room for growth are all reasons I love working at AlienVault. It's hard to find solid companies to work for today, and AlienVault is known for being in the top of the security space, which you can see by the hard work every employee produces on a daily basis. The team values their work, its customers, partners and has a great work hard, play hard mentality.Cons
Still in start-up mode in a few ways where communication across departments is lacking, but you can already see improvements by the management team to ensure everyone is on board with the direction of the company.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Continue allowing each team player to have individual say in his or her role. The management team is open to everyone's opinions and ideas, which is a great policy and helps keep communication flowing and open at all times.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
