I have been working at FireEye full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Amazing technology. Work with top-tier peers, with broad experience. Opportunities to grow, and fast! Dave DeWalt and the executive team have an amazing track record. That instills confidence. The amazing growth is demand-generated. We're truly making a difference in the battle against Advanced Threats.

Cons

Growing pains. In almost every role you must be independently motivated. If you're used to the sluggish pace of larger security brands, or like to be dictated daily tasks, this may not be the right fit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on well defined career paths so existing employees don't miss opportunities due to growth velocity..Corporate culture is maturing, let's continue to see that! =)

    I have been working at FireEye full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing leaders, free lunches, fast growth, exciting environment. It is awesome to have Dave DeWalt on board he brings with him years of experience with top tier tech companies.

    Cons

    Processes haven't been built out in all areas. It would be nice if we were all located in one building instead of having to walk all over and across the street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to solidify some processes, don't be to strict with marketing - use FireEye man more! Utilize social media, youtube and better PR.
