    Pros

    Great mentorship from everyone from the legal team. Catered lunch everyday. Collaborative and fun environment with very smart colleagues. Learned a lot of substantive patent law.

    Cons

    Work space was a bit cramp for interns initially, but as the company expanded, we eventually received individual cubicles. Not much to complain about. It was one of my best internship experience.

    I worked at FireEye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    FireEye Inc is a great place to work. It's fast paced and growing however, it's maintained a small company feel. The employees are friendly, hard working and dedicated. Executive management team would have quarterly all hands meetings to make sure everyone is aware of the company's overall goals and strategies.

    Cons

    There were times at FIreEye where the fast paced environment caused the back tracking of projects due to missing critical components of the project. This only happened a couple of times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay grounded as the company grows.
