    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - incredible senior leadership team that truly cares about employees - at almost 3,000 employees, a remarkably innovative culture and continued focus on entrepreneurial spirit - 1000% focused on our mission. Find Evil and stop those that seek to do harm in Cyberspace. Doesn't get any cooler than that. - company able to retain key talent from the 'early' days. Not many start ups moving to the next phase have been able to do this. - Super smart people at every turn. - while certainly not perfect, working exceptionally hard to keep away from bureaucracy!

    Cons

    - no 401k match for US employees. Company has been up front about desire to implement soon as feasible. - no other cons!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Stay humble and keep focused on the customer (as we do today) and we will continue changing the face of Cyber.
