    Pros

    Top reasons to work at Palo Alto Networks:
    1. Cool technology. Palo Alto Networks has THE Next-Generation Firewalls.
    2. Growing company: We are growing because folks are seeing how great our products are.
    3. Great people: Folks are here because they want to work here specifically, not just because its a job.
    4. Two words: Pre IPO.

    Cons

    Top 3 things Palo Alto Networks can improve:
    1. Some of the internal tools we use could be improved. The good news is that those things are being addressed.
    2. Matching 401(k). They have a 401(k) just not a matching one.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job steering this ship. Keep it by continuing to listen to the individual contributors and folks on the line who have their finger on the pulse of the customer. If you do that, you will be as successful post-IPO as you are pre-IPO.

    Pros

    Very fast pace of innovation while keeping a eye towards stability and scalability. Everyone who works there has been around the block and are there by choice. While the company has grown a lot since I started, there is still a very good start up culture that rewards innovation and diligence.

    Cons

    Very fast pace of innovation means a lot of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
