I had a very bad experience in my 2 years working for Barracuda Networks

Inside Sales (Former Employee) Campbell, CA

ProsCasual dress code. Keg in front on CEO's office. They have a luxury suite at San Jose Sharks games and occassionally entertain the staff there.

ConsThey pay here is horrible. During my time there countless sales reps, SE's, and employees in other departments left Barracuda for jobs paying 30-50% more for the same exact job/role. Barracuda is a boiler room sweat shop and has an extremely cliqueish culture. The CEO Dean Drako is the most rude and assuming person I have ever worked for in 25 years in the workforce.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire everyone and start from scratch!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
