    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBrightest group of technical people I have ever worked with. Tight knit group. Ability to challenge the status quo.

    ConsThe IBM acquisition was great in many ways, but some of the key talent left following the acquisition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the BigFix team the space to do what it does best -innovate.

    Small teams that created big products

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

    Pros- fast paced work in small teams
    - worked on relevant products that competed against much larger companies

    Cons- there wasn't much going on in terms of career development
    - there were definitely cliques among certain senior employees that alienated newer folks

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    fast pace on tight budget

    Applications Engineer (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsThe company was expanding its product lines at that time. The support/sale/eng teams were in close collaboration to pushing the business forward. There were frequent brownbag events for cross-team technical discussion. And the people are super friendly.

    ConsThe product team needs to work overtime periodically due to the time-sensitivity of security products. Bottom-line: people work happy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Less BigFix, More IBM Everyday

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsGood technology.
    Decent building and facilities.
    Excellent customer support and internal IT crew.
    Generally smart people.
    Decent compensation.
    Accessible management

    ConsCliqueish and political atmosphere.
    Management could not hire a sales VP to save its life.
    Didn't seem to get that products have lifecycles. Much excitement for a "new" product, but little sense on how to maintain or develop it going forward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe old BigFix is gone, but culture can persist.
