Pros

The Company has catered lunch on Wednesdays. The workers are friendly.

Cons

Director's like to yell, unpleasant and unprofessional.
Workers are warned not to approach other Department Manager's because they might have a temper tantram.
Some staff members lack very basic computer skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat both consultants and employee's with respect. It is unproductive to have "Director" or "Managers" that are preceived to have so much power and control that everyone else needs to walk on egg shells in order to get their work done. This is a small company with to many back stabbing and unhealthy management. They should clean house starting with the Director's. They should offer free training to their all staff on how to use MS Office Suite.

    Pros

    To better appreciate your former employer after joining ArcSight.
    You will become a cynical demoralized candidate after the first interview.

    Cons

    Have to work 1 year before you can quit otherwise employers perceive a 'job hopper'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop offering bread crumbs.

    I worked at ArcSight

    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 ManagementAdvice

    None.
