Pros

Barracuda has made a tremendous impact on the industry in a short time and keeps growing. The growth creates a changing environment with lots to do and plenty of opportunity. Those who embrace that kind of culture will find the most success here.

While Barracuda is getting bigger, individuals can still improve things. The management structure is flat so getting your thoughts heard and considered is not hard. I agree with some other reviews in that this is a great place to quickly pick up valuable technical experience at all levels.

Cons

It might not be for everyone. People looking for a bigger corporate environment with lots of structure may get frustrated here. Barracuda is just not your typical technology company.

Advice to Management

Don't get comfortable - strive to improve everything. Especially focus on developing ways to find and retain the most intelligent and ambitious people who really enjoy their work.

    Pros

    1. Impressed by the clear strategy for keeping up with the changes in the industry.
    2. The near obsessive focus on customer support and service. This manifests itself in many ways - including listening to customers' feedback about product features, processes and new product ideas.
    3. Creatively exhibited and demanded in solving business problems - resulting a "can do" attitude.
    4. A culture that promotes (and demands) open communication. There are very few companies where the CEO of the company regularly meets employees from support, engineering and manufacturing to discuss THEIR issues.
    5. Decisions are delegated to the right level. I have never heard the argument, "we are doing this because I said so, and I am the boss". This means you get to make your own decisions (commensurate with your experience and position, of course) and also that you are responsible for your decisions.

    Cons

    Barracuda Networks has many employees, in many countries. A more proactive program of communicating what the company is doing (on a quarterly basis) will be appreciated by many employees.

    Advice to Management

    The style of leadership practiced by Dean, which is "get feedback from all, but make your own independent" decisions is key IMHO. The "get feedback from all" is probably the most important part and fairly elusive to find in other leaders.

  2. Barracuda is a great place to work with lots of opportunity to grow.
