    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.
