I have been working at Infoblox full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
There are a number of pros to working here.
1) Moved to a new facility about two years ago, in a good central location in the South Bay.
2) Partially subsidized cafeteria
3) Successful IPO launch, but stock is cheap enough that you might have some upside going forward.
4) Electric car charging stations
5) On-site basketball/volleyball court, huge perk for me.
6) Generally friendly atmosphere, execs do not cower in their offices and mingle a great deal. For my part, I have friends all over the company. The CFO plays basketball with us! I don't see what other people are complaining about in this area. You can even talk to guys in marketing, which is a first in my experience. You do need to be on your toes.
7) Salaries seem to be average or slightly above. Engineers get the lion's share of annual salary bumps.
8) Great HR department. Really, they're the best I've ever seen and make a lot out of a little.
9) They invest heavily in marketing for lead generation, and while the results are mixed, they don't just tell the sales guys to go out and sell with no air cover.
10) Their training group, both internal and external, is top-notch. Another area where they invest wisely.
11) Sufficient IT and logistical support that I have everything I need for my work.
12) Reasonable diversity compared to many other Valley outfits.Cons
1) A bit of a 'rock star' culture, where certain folks get recognition out of measure to what they're done in some cases.
2) Some siloing, but I get the impression they're taking steps to address this.
Unlike some others here, I really don't have a lot of negative things to say. Whatever negative aspects exist on the job are usually up to the individual to solve, and if you can do that you will do well.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep promoting and fostering opportunity, and try to look for effort and quality just beyond the rock star types who seem to get all the accolades sometimes. Otherwise, who am I to tell you how to do your job?RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
1 person found this helpfulApplication Details
I applied online – interviewed at Infoblox.Interview Details
Cleared telephonic round and went for onsite interview.
Interview process was not professional. I discussed about my expected salary range before interview.
After everything got cleared and submitted references and salary slips of current employer, they mentioned designation is not "Principle Engineer" and it is "Sr Software Engineer".
Salary also 40K less than what I mentioned before interview.
If they can't give what I mentioned, why should they call me for interview.
Among all asking for references and salary slips is really irritating.
