    I worked at Infoblox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A few years ago, Infoblox was a good place to get established if you were starting a new career direction. The company does a good job of trusting subject matter experts and putting them in places where they can make a difference. At Infoblox, it is easy to mold your responsibilities around areas and challenges that interest you. Many employees did well during and after the IPO.

    Cons

    Many of the best team members have left. Business success is achieved at the expense of personnel happiness. Hiring efforts are attracting B and C players. HR works for the company rather than the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to address inequality issues and help long time employees feel valued. Need to make career advancement paths clear for existing employees.

    I have been working at Infoblox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Co-workers are nice. My manager is very nice to work with. They have happy hours on Friday.

    Cons

    Not the director. The co. does not treat everyone nearly equal in terms of stock options, job assignments. When the new director came, he brought his own people. The work for old timers got shifted away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to the people who have been there for a while.

    I have been working at Infoblox as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    People are great, lots of laughter, great managers, always trying to improve. The coffee doesn't suck, either.

    Cons

    Departments need to communicate with each other better. If you are not careful, you can end up working 24/7, but NOT because my manager expects it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always strive to improve! I think the management is very approachable and many people care about doing a good job.

    I worked at Infoblox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some really nice people who work there, 75% of them are unhappy and are simply afraid to do anything about it. They just complain to co-workers and stay.

    Cons

    Horribly miserable, uncaring, very wealthy, self-righteous upper management with old skool mentality that care only about themselves.

    Favoritism rules regarding hiring, promotion and raises. Very unfair practices in HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Do unto others..."...well you all should know the rest of that line, and here's another good one..."What goes around..." yea...you all should know that one too.
