I have been working at FireEye as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The compensation is more than generous; the hours are flexible; the company atmosphere is motivated and fast-paced while also maintaining a laid back feel; the free food (snacks, lunch) is a big perk; and the employees are incredibly smart... For the internship program, they offer the option to provide intern-housing that is very convenient for out-of-towners, and the focus is on interns learning and contributing to the company, while also having a great experience and enjoying the bay area

Cons

The internship program is very new, so they are working on ironing out some kinks, but they definitely work hard to make sure the interns are happy.. Really don't have complaints

    I worked at FireEye full-time for more than a year

    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.
