I worked at Blue Coat Systems full-time for less than a year

Pros

You'll get a paycheck.
Many people, below the executive level, are very friendly.

Cons

Management is all over the place in mindset and they appear to take things personally.
It's a business, not a place for your friends and cronies.
Benefits are mediocre.
Some corporate administration functions are amaturish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't fire engineers or other employees because you made poor business decisions.
