    I worked at Fortinet

    Pros

    Doing my job was up to me and I pretty much did my own thing. I had 3 managers in the year and half I was there.

    Cons

    Promises of great wealth with IPO soon to happen, that was in 2005, and just now in 2009 they filed for IPO. They tried and take anything they have to pay for and reverse engineer it and build it themselves. No understanding of how to the day to day operations are to run at a company. When asked Ken one time about a calendaring system he said an employee could walk over to his cube and look on his white board, and others should do the same. yeah that works well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your product and stop utilizing engineers time to reverse engineer other systems. Better use of company time resources.
