    I worked at Sourcefire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since Sourcefire no longer exists I am writing this as a memorial to the company.

    -free lunches everyday
    -free vending machine drinks
    -dogs in the office
    -casual all week long
    -snorty calendar and mascot
    -great and fast paced learning experience

    Cons

    -being bought by Cisco. The majority of people are now at Tenable. So if you want to work for Sourcefire 2.0, go to Tenable.
