Watch Your Back - Politics Galore!

Product Marketing (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsIt's a well-known company inside of its industry and customers like the products.

ConsA lot of politics at Blue Coat. It seemed that someone was always scheming / manipulating to try to get ahead, making others look bad and too more energy is spent on playing politics than improving the products and services to customers. They often do random RIFs - and my guess is just so that it keeps the stock price from dropping.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people based on merit, rather than how much they kiss ass.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
