    Pros

    - Fantastic company culture. "Work smarter, not harder" culture means that the company values employee's personal time but is focused on actually getting things done.
    - The company hosts a very diverse (age, ethnicity, background) population, lending itself to a refreshingly different style of startup than the ex-Facebook/Google brogrammer environment you see at other successful startups nowadays.
    - Really no competition. AlienVault's job is to teach the market why integrated security makes sense. If there wasn't a good story there this would be a huge negative. But with their product and solutions it's a big positive and lends itself to a "sandbox" environment for their product team.
    - Personable and approachable executive team.

    Cons

    - Despite the company growing beyond its humble startup origins, we're still learning how to instrument things like expense reporting in a scalable way.
    - To accomplish the "work smarter, not harder" mentality the company is populated by some very strong and ambitious personalities. The environment is not contentious or "Game of Thrones-y" by any means, but you will need to be very personally motivated in order to keep up.
    - Security is a hard field to get into unless you're genuinely interested in it. People here care a lot about security, so you should be similarly motivated (or interested enough to learn).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Barmak does an absolutely fantastic job of being approachable and personal with employees at all levels. I know it's going to be hard to do this going forward, but please keep it up.

    Pros

    Company is doing some really exciting work and has a clear vision of where it is headed. As a recent addition to the team, I can report that everything from initial contact, interview process, hiring, and on-boarding has been without a single hitch. Management clearly is focused on company goals and people and it shows in the way the team works and supports its customers.

    Cons

    Company is a start-up so not all the perks of a large organization, but they are growing fast.
