I have been working at ArcSight full-time for more than 3 years

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at ArcSight full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at ArcSight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is full of smart people and excellent technology. The benefits are very good and so are the perks (snacks, drinks, happy hour, etc.).

    Cons

    Excessively political. The ability to get something completed is based on who you know in the company. The training program is inadequate to successfully prepare one to be successful. I'm a presales engineer in the east and have been neglected by my management. I am strongly considering working for a competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on people development and less on politics. Too often people are promoted based on personal relationships and not industry expertise.
