I worked at SonicWALL full-time for less than a year

Pros

(1)Great daily commute with against-traffic driving between company and my home in Sunnyvale.
(2)Engineer-driven company and engineer gets fully support to do his work.

Cons

Lack of communications between different functional groups.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage engineers to connect cross groups and get a big picture of company product. That will motivate engineers more. The company makes great products not only depending on just a few "key" managers, but also on all levels of engineers.

    I have been working at SonicWALL full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great compensation package. Other than that, this company is a major downer. Can't compete in the SSL VPN (Aventail) market as the product never works correctly. The product is made for small mom and pop shops.

    Cons

    Not a real player in the UTM firewall market. Can't compete with Palo Alto or Fortinet. Sonicwall is a pretender.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company, oh wait, DELL already bought you! SUCKERS!!!
