    Exciting company that treats employees very well

    Product Management (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsThe compensation is more than generous; the hours are flexible; the company atmosphere is motivated and fast-paced while also maintaining a laid back feel; the free food (snacks, lunch) is a big perk; and the employees are incredibly smart... For the internship program, they offer the option to provide intern-housing that is very convenient for out-of-towners, and the focus is on interns learning and contributing to the company, while also having a great experience and enjoying the bay area

    ConsThe internship program is very new, so they are working on ironing out some kinks, but they definitely work hard to make sure the interns are happy.. Really don't have complaints

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A truly great product, supported by an entire company of amazing people

    Marketing Intern (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsFull time employees are more than welcoming to interns. Weekly discussions from C-level executives have been informative and a great introduction to different realms of the company. The internship program is set-up to create a community of interns to network, whilst integrating them into the company culture. Fun events such as Giants games and group lunches are scheduled. Projects that I have been working on have been meaningful work with a great amount of overview given into the bigger picture of the company. Most importantly, other employees have taken the time to teach and educate on the company procedures and mission. Overall, awesome environment to be working in.

    ConsThe company has grown rapidly so keeping up with the fast pace can be a challenge- but an enjoyable one.

    Great Company with enormous amount of potential to grow exponentially!!!!!!

    Analyst (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsI would say there are a lot of good reasons to work in the FireEye:

    1) Great Pay and a very competitive pay
    2) Double digit growing company with lots of talent
    3) Intensive research on security so if one is interested in security, this is the place
    4) FREEEE LUNCH and that too is very good.
    5) Free breakfast n almost every type of coffee available.
    6) Excellent location. Easy to reach over there via VTA so commute is not at all a problem.
    7) Very friendly managers
    8) Very steep learning curve over here in the company. It helps the students a lot to learn about different technologies
    9) A proper intern curriculum have been set for the interns. We have been given a schedule with lots of events, meetups with executives, intern showcase at the end . A very good percentage of conversion rate of interns into full time
    10) Every Tuesday, we have a picnic break where all the employees gather at one place and gets a chance to interact with other team members for a while.
    11) MOST IMPORTANTLY, the company heavily invests in interns and the interns never feel that they have not been a part of the company.

    ConsI don't see any cons in the company as of now. Might be that the pros truly suppresses the cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust work the way you are working!!!!!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
