    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than 3 years)


    Over the past 2 years, Mandiant/iSight leadership has almost completely taken over FireEye and the culture/morale has improved dramatically.

    - Fun culture and atmosphere, even for remote workers
    - Smart people who care about their mission
    - Ability to contribute and growing internal mobility
    - Good pay
    - Reasonable work/life balance in most functions
    - Solid and reasonably priced benefits


    - Some (nice but non-essential) perks removed as they cost cut towards profitability - free lunch, some snacks, etc
    - No matching 401k

    Advice to Management

    Do better at marketing our hard work and innovation
    Match our 401K
    Keep driving forward

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at FireEye (New York, NY) in July 2017.


    The process was excellent, well organized and the recruiter was very responsive through each step. The company moves quickly so be prepared and flexible to align with the recruiters schedule. Overall, I think FireEye has the best process and overall candidate experience compared to 30+ interviews I went through.
