    I have been working at FireEye as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    From the heirarchal chain of command, every employee I've met genuinely buys into the synergy, 'team-first', mentality. This is why FireEye, Inc. has become a prominent cyber security firm in the world.

    Cons

    The company still has a start-up structure so there are growing pains but not too difficult to overcome.

    I have been working at FireEye full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1) Great healthcare
    2) average ESPP
    3) above average vacation/sick policies
    4) competitive salary
    5) Stock options generous
    6) food everywhere, lunches snacks out the ying yang - thou don't base career on this

    Cons

    401k!!! HELLLLOOOO, we all gotta retire sometime. Add a freaking match and you got a serious benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the morale. The morale goes with the stock price if left unchecked.

    I have been working at FireEye full-time

    Pros

    Amazing tech to work with.
    Benefits are decent. Comparable to what's in the market. They do need to start matching, though.
    Intelligent colleagues who all have some type of personality. No dull folks, here.
    Honorable Mission against cyber attacks.

    Cons

    Do not practice agile, enough.
    401K match not offered, yet.
    Some employees just starting a family needs to have more flexibility (i.e: More leeway to work remotely).
    No free lunches daily, unlike the folks at Milpitas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice agile MORE. Enough of this hybrid nonsense. Apparently, it's not really working. Engineering management need better coordination between Dev and QA. Other than that, keep doing what you're doing so far. Future outlook is bright.
