    Pros

    Leadership, product and people were all great and I really enjoyed working there. Would jump on any opportunity to work in the same environment again.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any cons except for the fact that it might have gotten acquired a bit too soon. Similar companies have twice the market cap as they are still independent.

    Pros

    good company to work for, Friendly and effective working relationship between people and groups. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Merging into HP changed the company's culture to the style of a large corporation. Arcsight has lost some of the its attractiveness but added some other aspects.

    Pros

    people are usually nice and help each other for work. Also company is pretty successful because technology is leading market. it is also pretty good balancing life and work.

    Cons

    The pay is not good enough, especially the stock option. Company had 1:4 reverse split for stock option. But no reverse split for investor.

    Should pay more attention to technology not just marketing and sales.

    Office culture struck a good balance between energetic startup and established tech company.

    Was bought by HP in 2010 and slowly lost the spirit that made it successful.
