A family company

Vice President of Product Management (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsFortinet 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
