    Pros

    CEO was hands off. Liked to stay in office. Former owners were the key to the culture. Once company was sold off to investors the Berkley Emeryville mentality was lost. The beauty of a BigFix was selling the culture and purity of honest caring about the endpoint security needs of our clients. Working hands on with Big Pharma, Government/large end user needs help expand BigFix into growth. BigFix cared about its clientele. Sales teams always delivered what customers needed. Once bought by IBM all was lost. Marketing VPs were crap. Sales never had a true leader. The product was the true PRO!

    Advice to Management

    True leaders are hard to find. Women can lead and sell too.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at BigFix.

    Interview

Then, on the day of, the engineer called me about two minutes past. Phone interview that took 30 minutes. First half of the interview consists of behavioral question, and the last half consisted of technical interview.
