    Pros

    Barracuda is an incredible place to work - The value and experiences this company provides has been indispensable for me and many others.

    This is a very fun place to work and I think the culture at its core is what really drives this place and its success. Management genuinely cares about the well being and development of it's people and it's directly reflected in the fact that 80-90%% of Barracuda's employees have spent 2,3,7,10+ years there.

    Not only is the security and storage space exactly where you want to be from a technology vertical perspective but Barracuda also took the time to position themselves quite nicely with the emerging public cloud industry that is just starting to pick up steam.

    You work hard, and they expect you to do so. It's the age old adage, you get out what you put in. If you take the time to bust your *** you will be noticed, rewarded and compensated - Simple as that, they love to promote from within and never lost their start-up feel even after having gone public.The C-level guys are out there on the floor everyday and will specifically help with your deals if asked, they're extremely accessible and truly enjoy being involved and helping people succeed.

    From sales kickoff every year, to Cudaoke (karaoke), to the game room and bar downstairs, the catered lunches, the 5 star resort they'll fly you out too for hitting over 100% for the year, the celebrity guest speakers, the MMA ring in the middle of the sales floor; trust me there are tons of perks there. The skills you will receive there and the relationships you build with the people you work with I believe will help your career indefinitely moving forward, I can't thank them enough.

    Cons

    To some of the negative comments I see on some of these previous reviews, I get who these people are, I worked with them. I watched how they didn't work as hard as I did but were the first and loudest to express their displeasure.

    Funny thing is Barracuda gave most of these people their start in tech or sales even. You don't necessarily need a background in technology to be brought on, they see and understand the value of character - That's what they're looking for. So I always found it funny that Barracuda gave these people their chance/start, basically giving them an actual career to build on and they are complaining about things like compensation, comparing themselves to people working for other tech companies who have 3+ years experience (these other places wouldn't have even given them the opportunity to work there)

    At the end of the day if you work hard at Barracuda the accelerators are generous, you don't get something for nothing!
