Pros

Free Lunch.
Free Drinks.
Beefy Desktop that you can use to load whatever OS on their that you wish.
Macbook Pro. Take it as is, can't change the OS.
Very flexible with life outside of work.
On-call is very infrequent.

Cons

Management can be very intrusive and not very understanding of situations, whether it be with customers or internal issues.
If you nip it in the bud early that you aren't going to take any crap, then you will have no problems.
Oh, and there really isn't any room for advancement.

    Pros

    I have not had any experiences like the those noted in the review from January 30. In fact, we just got back from a company-wide meeting and feel quite the opposite, strongly enough to add this review. My managers listen and empower teams to great things. What's more, personally, I have never seen anything inappropriate that deviates from company values or needed to be concealed or covered up. Hopefully, few others have either. And for the record HR, has always been fine to work with.

    Let me finish by saying that many of us are approached by head-hunters often, yet are very happy here and plan to stick around for a good while. And I am very confident that nearly everybody at Sourcefire agrees.

    Cons

    The cons I have seen tend to fall into the trivial category -- they are present for sure, no workplace is without them, but they aren't really an issues given the pros that far, far outweigh them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on security - which we have been doing - to ensure we always remain focused on keeping threats at bay.
