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

Pros

Better than a video game!! More interesting than those other boring companies that make unimportant stuff!! FireEye is the place to be. I feel like i'm doing important work that makes the world a safer place.

Cons

Only challenge is how fast we are growing. It's really a good thing!! We call it FireEye speed!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A couple of lunches with the troops every once in awhile would be great! BTW, we have a GREAT leadership team!!

    Pros

    Free lunches. Technology pretty good. People are smart.

    Cons

    CEO front man devised second IPO to make billions. Employees can't sell high and get almost nothing. Stock was at $90 a share. Then 2/3 of value gone when CEO sold so many shares. No loyalty to the company at top.

    Head of Engineering thinks you expendable. Hours very long. No recognition for contributions. No work and life balance. Make up processes as they are going.

    They spend $ like in a sink down the drain and not enough customers. Sales cycle way too long. Not making $ fast enough to keep up with spending. POVs give product to customers for months for free. Many don't buy because the PoV shows them this exposure.

    Office in Milpitas. Terrible commute. It stinks in Milpitas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition. Better work and life balance. Share wealth with employees.

    Pros

    FireEye rocks! Company picnic was awesome, and made others going on look stale.

    Cons

    There's a lot to get done due to quick growth, but it's all good.
