    I have been working at ForeScout Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free lunch and parking. Work life balance is better than most organizations and allows schedule flexibility for day care. Some of the new executives are trying to fix past mistakes of the old leadership.

    Cons

    Senior management is as bad as it gets and is either abrasive (marketing), corrupt (sales) or incompetent (services). Restated more earnings due to shady sales deals than any other company I have known.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recuse yourself.

    Amazing technology and great people. Might be suffering from growth pains

    I worked at ForeScout Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides a very rich set of technologies that solve customer problems like no other company I worked for. The revenue growth as well as customer satisfaction from the product never cease to amaze me. It's almost magical.

    Cons

    The company has been growing rapidly and adding many new people. Allowing all the new hires to find their spot and contribute proved to be a challenging task. This would probably resolve over the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring all the talent you can get is not always the optimal policy. Spend more time on where you hire and how you get those new hires run at full speed before adding more employees.

    Pros

    A hostile work environment, HR has created an environment of fear, you think you're in a German camp back to world war two !

    Cons

    Very poor management, it's getting worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supporting your team members is at least you could do, please keep up with good employees before you lose them.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, ability to make a difference, great product, management instills confidence in the workforce.

    Cons

    Nothing really. It has that "startup" mentality, where things can get a little crazy, but that's hardly a Con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    People are friendly, helpful and work hard. Good products that are well received by customers. Health benefits are great and lunch provided daily - yet oddly no matching 401K

    Cons

    Executives don't appear to care about employees and do a poor job of communicating the company vision and direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people first, communicate across the entire organization

    Pros

    Innovative and forward thinking. Very supportive of its employees. Growing very quickly and lots of opportunity around the world for the right people.

    Cons

    Must be adaptable and willing to change. Things come up daily that require us to act fast. Sometimes the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More oversight of some of the functions would definitly reduce costs and redundacies.

    Pros

    Products that work, great staff, definitely going someplace! Lots of opportunity to make a name for yourself and those around you.

    Cons

    There are a lot of benefits to having a lot of long term staff in the company for 8+ years but, one downside is trying to affect change. It would be great if everyone read "Switch".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your staff how to improve the business.

    Pros

    Small, private, but growing(at a fast rate) company. Awesome product that brings many benefits to customers. Fun and professional group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Needs more focus on employee development. Time to implement some 360 review system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company have been very sales focused for the last few years. We have established ourselves in the market now, and while most of our customers are happy with our prodcu we should shift some of the focus on product quality and customer satisfaction.
