Pros

Founders are still around, very involved. Know their staff, have an open door policy and actually listen to their employees' suggestions. Generous with company activities, lunches, recognition programs. Lots of opportunities for internal promotions. Company pays for almost the entire cost of the health benefits.

Cons

Still a start-up and some times policy is made on the fly. The health plan is horrible, but HR has done a great job at negotiating an entirely new benefits plan for 2012. Hopefully they'll succeed at improving the current plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a lot of raw talent within Gigamon. Take advantage of it!

    Pros

    Good pay.
    Some very dedicated staff working at Gigamon but not enough of them!

    Cons

    Mercenary US management in pre-IPO era looking to maximise revenue at any cost, no regard to staff well-being and absolutely clueless about the EMEA market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employee feedback even if it's not what you want to hear.

    Great Product direction, inexperienced CxO

    I worked at Gigamon

    Pros

    Product, technologies, engineering and support are excellent ! Strong customer base and large market share. Simple hierarchy and happy working atmosphere.... all gone in 2013.

    Cons

    Inexperienced CxO, lack of strategic leadership capability. Pretending to be a large corporate, expand the company in short time but not effective. Too many idle middle management level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    True suggestion and advice never reach top management, they only listen praise word. Everything in first class doesn't make Gigamon success. Change a more capable leader.

    Doesn't Recommend
