    Pros

    Leadership, product and people were all great and I really enjoyed working there. Would jump on any opportunity to work in the same environment again.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any cons except for the fact that it might have gotten acquired a bit too soon. Similar companies have twice the market cap as they are still independent.

    Pros

    good company to work for, Friendly and effective working relationship between people and groups. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Merging into HP changed the company's culture to the style of a large corporation. Arcsight has lost some of the its attractiveness but added some other aspects.

    Pros

    people are usually nice and help each other for work. Also company is pretty successful because technology is leading market. it is also pretty good balancing life and work.

    Cons

    The pay is not good enough, especially the stock option. Company had 1:4 reverse split for stock option. But no reverse split for investor.

    Advice to Management

    Should pay more attention to technology not just marketing and sales.

    Pros

    Office culture struck a good balance between energetic startup and established tech company. Felt management respected my opinion and valued my contributions. Fair amount of free food: breakfast foods, afternoon snacks, sodas, and free lunch every Wednesday.

    Cons

    Was bought by HP in 2010 and slowly lost the spirit that made it successful.


  10. Hold on for a fast ride!

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with a strong and professional sales team and with bleeding edge products with incredible grow opportunities. Excellent executive management team.

    Cons

    Poor communication within the company to remote workers. Management does not communicate well or create career growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to communicate from SVP level down to their respective teams. Communication is non-existant for the remote teams.

    Pros

    It was a Pre-IPO company when I joined. The space is very hot, since Security and compliance is a big deal these days. The engineers there are of above average quality, and they work very hard and they are very productive. There are some super people there as well. Benefits were fairly good although their 401k did not match

    Cons

    Low Pay, decent benefits, but not great.. But I really got ripped off in terms of pay when I joined. they low balled me into taking a pay cut, which I later regretted. Basically the biggest drawback is that it is a startup with low pay.

    Advice to Management

    None.
