    I worked at A10 Networks full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of. They did pay on time I guess, and the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    The company is actively hostile to work-life balance, demanding insanely long hours from employees with no acknowledgement that employees have lives outside work

    Pros

    Good place to start but you will never grow at A10

    Cons

    Just keep working
    Work your butt off and nobody cares and only the managers are congratulated
    Cutting a lot of the company perks-snacks, hard to acquire MBOs, management try to prolong and hide bonuses(your typical asia company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the useless Directors and Senior Managers....Seriously!!

    Worked really hard, in a promising industry, but disappointment at the end

    I worked at A10 Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Products competed in promising industries - ADC/security. Speaking from the engineering side, it was really flat and unstructured. If your personality and working style are liked by the leadership, you would get quick promotion. So there's opportunity for career growth. If you like to work in the networking field, you would get a lot of exposures in different areas and learn great amount of skills (hopefully those skills can still be useful for a number of years). You would get a lot of experience working under pressure. People were generally very nice and willing to help. Benefit was decent.

    Cons

    Most of the financial problems (declining rev, rising costs) were caused by the engineering, IMO. Engineering leadership (including CEO) always made you feel frustrated. They don't generally listen, and speak with logics few people understand. Some managers liked to bark in the ears to drive people to work harder. Too many random projects and quality couldn't be maintained. Big projects were pursued due to political reasons, and even everybody knew it's useless, it had to be worked on. No product management, at all. Vision was built in the cloud - never think about execution. Moral was getting lower and lower, but senior management thought they could turn it around just by talking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering leadership needs a change.

    Pros

    Good talented engineers working with great enthusiasm.

    Cons

    Low salary / pathetic executive management driving the company to ruins, esp the engineering heads. Engineers in dev / QA dont have any life....worst work hours, zero/minimum recognition (actually they make fun by paying pathetic bonus)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step aside and let someone capable enough run the company.
