    If working in US- less technical growth with less salaries

    Test Engineer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsGood Work Enivironment.
    They have a really good Vice President

    Thriving industry (cybersecurity), good work-life balance, adjusting to being part of Dell.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting, important, good guys vs. bad guys purpose to the work.

    Flexible hours, work-at-home contribute to work-life balance.

    Cornerstone of Dell Software vision.

    ConsKey departures due to layoffs and resignations as part of Dell integration.

    Collegial corporate culture being overtaken by Dell.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the legacy indirect sales channel that SonicWALL built its success on is not neglected as Dell takes over.

    aMy experience in Dell/SonicWall:

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros(1)Great daily commute with against-traffic driving between company and my home in Sunnyvale.
    (2)Engineer-driven company and engineer gets fully support to do his work.

    ConsLack of communications between different functional groups.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage engineers to connect cross groups and get a big picture of company product. That will motivate engineers more. The company makes great products not only depending on just a few "key" managers, but also on all levels of engineers.

    Sonicwall

    Ass Kisser (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat compensation package. Other than that, this company is a major downer. Can't compete in the SSL VPN (Aventail) market as the product never works correctly. The product is made for small mom and pop shops.

    ConsNot a real player in the UTM firewall market. Can't compete with Palo Alto or Fortinet. Sonicwall is a pretender.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company, oh wait, DELL already bought you! SUCKERS!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall a good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsPersonally I find SonicWall a pleasant place to work. The benefits are good, they have 401K matching, and the managers, directors, and VP's I deal with are great.

    ConsSonicWall is not very consistent at giving raises and they are normally around 2% of your salary. Their employee bonus system is meager at best, even after having record revenue numbers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs with any company, upper management should never forget the "little guys" who make it happen. Recognition is one thing but financial rewards go a bit further - especially with moral.
