I worked at Blue Coat Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Good Holiday Party at Xmas

Cons

Employees not friendly and don't even say Hi if pass you by in hall way or in elevator. Everyone just kept to themselves like they're afraid to socialize with anyone. Lots of politics and backstabbing. People are hired not based on their skill set but based on who they knew at the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the culture and morale of the company.

    Pros

    A company on the rise, with a global reach but small enough to feel noticed, with a very friendly, casual culture. The products are integral to where the internet is going. A genuine sense of camaraderie prevails.

    Cons

    It's an hour away from where I live!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps support a bit more working remotely...

    New via acquisition, company has great strategy and leadership is as engaged as I have ever seen in 20+ years in business.

    Some legacy product tension as new strategy unfolds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up great work! People are noticing.
