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

    Pros

    - Salary
    - Benefits
    - Perks : Free food, free gym
    - Do you job and no one bothers you, easy to take sick days or personal days off (Management understands we are people too!)

    Cons

    Management isn't investing on growth for individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your employees looking to move up in the company, some of us aren't there just to do our jobs, but to move up and make an impact with this growing company.

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

    Pros

    Smart and friendly employees, top notch management. Very collaborative environment that lacks the "drama" at other companies I've worked at. Good benefits- free food, 401K match, small gym, health insurance, events for employees and their family. Company is growing like crazy and doing well, lots of positive momentum. Tons of work to do, but the impact one person can have is significant. IPO is coming!

    Cons

    Slowly, policies and procedures are being developed. Still has a ways to go, but getting there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    thank you for making Gigamon a great place to work.

    I have been working at Gigamon

    Pros

    Founders are still around, very involved. Know their staff, have an open door policy and actually listen to their employees' suggestions. Generous with company activities, lunches, recognition programs. Lots of opportunities for internal promotions. Company pays for almost the entire cost of the health benefits.

    Cons

    Still a start-up and some times policy is made on the fly. The health plan is horrible, but HR has done a great job at negotiating an entirely new benefits plan for 2012. Hopefully they'll succeed at improving the current plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of raw talent within Gigamon. Take advantage of it!
