I worked at Infoblox

Pros

- good product,
- long time with the company engineers are experienced.

Cons

- very un-cooperative egineers,
- interesting/creative work is done by the engineers that are with company for long time, unwilling to share the details or give a chance to the newcomers to contribute substantially.
- very political at the engineering-management level.
- when critical issues arise, the urgency (to remediate) upon those responsible is uncoordinated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think you know well what is going on for so many ears now, for that reason I'll pass.

    I worked at Infoblox

    Pros

    Smart colleagues who are passionate about building great software.

    Cons

    Managers treat you like dirt and drive you like slaves. Pay is very low (20-30% lower than average) compared to rest of Bay Area but they say they compensate by offering more options (which may be worthless) and a bonus (which may be 0). There is no work-life balance - the VP expects you to put in 60+ hours a week. You are not given a chance to do a good job - as you are constantly switched between projects but are expected to have zero context switch downtime. You are forced to commit to artificial schedules that are contrary to your gut feeling, and, backed into a corner if you disagree. When the project goes over schedule (as you knew it would), you are forced to stay at work until it's done, to keep to the schedule (yeah, you don't get to go home until it's done!).

    Ever hear of Labor laws, Infoblox? You've been violating labor laws for years now!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you treat your employees like dirt, expect to them to produce dirt instead of a product.

    I have been working at Infoblox

    Pros

    Working at infoblox is great, you tend to have a very big grasp on your daily tasks & the organization thereof.
    They set the targets, you realize them.. And everything is peachy..

    Cons

    Even though you get a lot of possibilities in the NAM/US region, there's little to no advancement possibilities in EMEA.
