    Pros

    The company survives fierce competitions in the network load balancing industry and it is trying to lead the market.Various projects are going on and you will hardly get bored. Usually from time to time you need to move on to new project and you need to spend time to pick up new concepts and new challenges. very dynamic

    Cons

    life is busy and you need to multi task. Sometime you need to work over time in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize more training for fresh people in the company.

    Pros

    This company attracts many smart people from competitors and industry because of it's no non-sense, flat organization structure. Hope to see it remains the same as the company expands.

    Cons

    Too little time to mingle and talk to the subject matter experts in their field of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the process lean for engineers and developers. Their time are too precious to be wasted on mundane and administrative stuff.

    I have been working at A10 Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Technical organization has a flat structure and everyone is easily accessible. If you like to work hard with minimal supervision (although a lot will be expected of you), you will like it.

    Cons

    Morale declined following changes leading to IPO. New upper management was brought in, they then brought in their own people and hired them over the heads of the existing employees. That created resentment, aggravated by reverse stock split and poor stock performance. The last two took away the potential reward that people worked hard for. Everyone still works hard, but you don't see the enthusiasm that was present before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late to give advice. Let's hope future performance justifies the price.

    Pros

    I've been at the company just a few months, but I'm convinced it was a the best decision. The people are so friendly, very smart, and we have great team-work.

    Cons

    We are outgrowing out space due to so many new hires :-) I guess that is a good thing as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider an employee recognition awards and program.

    Pros

    This company will be an ideal or workaholic heaven. The opportunities are endless, engineers are encourage to learn and progress as fast as possible. The engineers are extremely talented. Most major bugs can be resolve in days. The company is transparent and have flat culture, where even new hires can read what upper management day-to-day tasks are.

    Cons

    Probably like most companies, some of the extremely talented people are pulling most of the weight of the company. No work-life balance. Work for MOST people are 10 hours minimum 6 days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the dead weight, it's causing moral issue for the people that are doing most of the work.

    I worked at A10 Networks

    Pros

    have some options that are good for kindling. What was promised as the American dream is now crushed by the realism that a10 just copies every other company out there.

    Cons

    The IPO is a joke.. I feel I am wasting my time as this company figures out how to get out of this debt cloud around it.
