    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Collaborative Environment. Casual Dress code.

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities. They would rather hire from the outside, for management and senior support positions, than promote from within.

    Pros

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working at FireEye. They are a great employer with a ton of day to day as well as yearly perks that come with working here. There is a real friendly culture around the office. The benefits package is good and the company seems to be way ahead of its competitors. Highly recommend applying.

    Cons

    Some of the benefits could be a little better, but I'm pretty sure it is something that they are working on.

    Advice to Management

    A better 401k would go a long way.

    Pros

    Great People and Products with a solid road map for future growth!

    Very good RSU program for new hires.

    Cons

    This is a fast and growing company. The only Con I would have is that we need to look at adding a 401K match. I am sure it's on the radar. Otherwise solid benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the business and keep doing what you are doing! It's working!

    Pros

    Product is easy-to-learn
    Advanced technology, definitely ahead of other competitors
    Management working on new products, partnership which indicate market growth
    Free lunch every day

    Cons

    Coding practices are very bad. Too many loose ends, and dependencies.
    Too much blame game, especially from Sustenance team. An employee was made scape-goat and fired even though the fault was not his.
    Constantly and frequently changing milestones
    Releases are planned very frequently, development given less time, results in bad code, ultimately prolongs the release than the scheduled time.
    Features added even at the end of the releases, engineers use a bug to check-in a new feature instead of a New Feature ticket.
    Some micro management
    No 401k matches, no yearly hike/bonus

    Pros

    I was an employee of Mandiant prior to the acquisition by FireEye. I don't have many good things to say about FireEye so I won't attempt to.

    Cons

    Once acquired the FireEye staff and management team didn't listen to or take any advice of the experienced Mandiant folks. Once the layoffs happened nobody from Mendicant was given any thought to the hundreds of technical positions that were posted only showing us the door. While the severance was generous their lies about being reimbursed were totally uncalled for.

    All I can say is keep your resume up to date, your contacts in order and DO NOT take these jokers at their word. Dave Dewalt talks a good talk but you can see his lies in their stock performance. Look at the unbelievable climb after the acquisition only to drop well below after a few weeks. While the pay was good, you never know when the layoffs could begin. Everything looked great up to the last week.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Dewalt, stop telling lies to your shareholders and employees. Kevin Mandia and the Mandiant team may have made out like bandits but those of us that weren't the executive elite were hung out to dry. Thanks for the eye opening experience of a startup for profit company.
