    I have been working at Fortinet full-time (less than an year)


    Super professional sales & engineering., surprisingly good sales people working there. Everyone is very professional to each other and surprisingly lack of politics. Lots of younger people working there. Investing in marketing team. New people are bringing a fresh approachable culture.


    No cafeteria. Continue to invest in female diversity initiatives. Minimal collaboration tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to bring in new leaders who are changing the culture in a positive way.

    Positive Outlook

    Junior Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fortinet in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially had a short chat on the phone with the recruiter and she explained what the company does and what the role is etc. She then set up a technical onsite interview with 2 engineers for 1 hour. The engineers had a hard time communicating in English and kept talking to each other during the interview in Chinese which was very unprofessional. Although I applied to a front end role, they asked me questions on C/C++. I was asked to write on the board- most of the questions were on array manipulations and circular array implementations.

    After a week, I was contacted for another onsite interview with the hiring manager and VP. The hiring manager asked me questions on hashing and networking. Later the VP asked behavioral questions, my salary expectations and indicated that everyone likes me and that he is planning to hire me.
