I have been working at Fortinet

Pros

Cutting edge technology. Lot of progress seen in teams, so a sense of optimism exists.

Cons

Very bureaucratic. Hard to get resources. Lower management style is stifling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is for managers and not necessarily senior management.
It is better to see the performance of an employee rather than see if he/she reads a newspaper or works from home sometimes. Sick days should be included so people dont come to work with illnesses making the rest of the team sick.

    Pros

    Fortinet catches a good timing in introducing gateway based antivirus solution and introducing unified threat management system. It is good to work for Xie's brothers for one year and then you should consider to leave.

    Cons

    The management, especially, Ken Xie and Michael Xie would promise you lots of things when you are just hired, but finally nothing can be realized. This is a family company and lots of friends and family members of the Ken Xie, Michael Xie and Chairman David Tsang are key employees of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Ken and hire a new CEO just like Netscreen did, then this company will be successful.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. No overhead when coding (No daily routings, but we do have weekly meetings). I can focus on development.

    Cons

    No complains so far. Really enjoying it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the good work. :)
