Pros

True innovation at it finest. Ashar and team nailed one of the most important problems in computer science. Feels like you are taking over the world.

Cons

Ugh, if or God's sake, it's in Milpitas.

Advice to Management

Ok, some you need a haircut. But seriously, publish more imformation regarding the awful malware that really is out there. Help people understand and coach them in what to do. Here I am referring to the world at large.

    Pros

    Great technology and some very clever people in parts of the company. Decent benefits, and the stock price seems to be getting stronger again.

    Cons

    Recent overhaul of management has put a group of people in charge of the company who appear to be out of their depth. They have zero understanding of the security market, and even less clue about working in a fast paced, high growth environment, so the energy has all but disappeared. What was once an inspiring company to work for is now a bit of a yawn.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being reactive to the stock market, and re-tune in to employees. Having sales staff spend all of their time reporting rather than doing their day job and visiting customers might be a positive step also. Communicate better with staff about changes and direction rather than ambushing them.

    Pros

    Some good product and work in the malware protection areas of the industry. Was an excellent company to work for in the UK prior to Mandiant acquisition. But things changed post office move to Reading.

    Cons

    Reading move has seen management treat staff poorly. Becoming arrogant in the marketplace, arrogant with their customers and partners/resellers. And treat the staff the same way...... Too much ego, but that comes with the acquisition .....

    Advice to Management

    All the good people have been let go or left, or are leaving, wake up !!!
