    Pros

    Fast-paced business that is growing rapidly. Rapid growth offers new opportunities for existing employees. Company invests in their employees - training, professional development, mentoring. Employees have opportunities to work with numerous partners (Cisco, Microsoft, Juniper, Riverbed, F5, Infoblox and more) and various consumption models (on prem, hybrid, cloud). Leaders are approachable and engaged. Company works hard to communicate the strategy and align departments with this strategy.

    Cons

    Fast pace sometimes means long hours. Pay is decent, but not outstanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize key contributors outside of sales.Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing!
