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

    Pros

    Cb is an excellent company with very smart, hard-working people. The products are something I am very proud to stand behind and our customers are second to none. I've watched this company grow from Bit9 to Bit9+Cb and now Cb, from under 200 to over 1200 employees in just a few years. That is a big deal, and though it hasn't been 100% smooth, nothing worth doing or fully standing behind will be perfect all the time. This is a company that wants to help others and succeed at the same time and we are successfully doing both and learning/adapting along the way. Also, the benefits are very good which is important.

    Cons

    Growing pains
    Constant changes
    Some politics
    Not everyone is as friendly and welcoming as when the company was smaller, but people are still very nice in general.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees, use a bit more caution with internal promotions (some promotions may be a bit premature) and continue with the transparency.

    Pros

    Great technology, open communication by CEO. Good work life balance, stock options

    Cons

    Since going public, the culture is changing to nothing but the bottom line at all costs. Too focused competition and access to execs is no difficult. For a company of this size, you would expect a small culture still - it is changing fast.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who you were and take care of our people.

    Pros

    Solid opportunities to travel. Treated well.

    Cons

    Pay isn’t anything to brag about.

    Advice to Management

    Relying on the next guy to step up works to a degree, but the market is so competitive and experience is imperative for growing success. With that said, higher base pay will keep employees longer.

    Pros

    I've only been here 2 weeks but can already say this is the best company I've ever worked for. All of the work perks are amazing, but much more importantly this culture is so unique and fun to be a part of. You can tell that everyone in the company is bought in to the mission and willing to do whatever it takes to make us successful. Everyone I ask for help immediately drops what they're doing (within reason) and gives me their time. Management is great, the onboarding and training was excellent, and I already feel empowered to make a positive impact here. Cannot say enough good things about the culture, the energy, and of course the company itself. Cb makes it fun to go to work every day, and we get to work with incredible products!

    Cons

    Actually can't think of any.
