    It gets confusing who to report to.

    Figure out what's going wrong with the company.

    I have been working at ArcSight full-time

    Pros

    They pay a salary., I guess that is the best you can do these days

    Cons

    ArcSight has gone down the toilet since HP bought them. Consistently gotten worse year to year. There are rumors of lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the staff, increase training, start giving raises above inflation again.

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

    Pros

    Office culture struck a good balance between energetic startup and established tech company.
    Felt management respected my opinion and valued my contributions.
    Fair amount of free food: breakfast foods, afternoon snacks, sodas, and free lunch every Wednesday.

    Cons

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

    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.
