    I worked at FireEye

    Pros

    Making friends in the workplace was so easy, building value was exciting and fast and the tech is absolute boss. Stay fresh.

    Cons

    The interning process ran very late. Was not sure if I would be able to work here until last minute. I'm glad I chose to turn down my other offers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing.

    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.

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