    I have been working at Carbon Black full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow cyber security knowledge which is in high demand
    Remote work opportunities - Large remote contingent means your not "That person on the phone" because everyone is one video conference and Slack (mostly level playing field for remote employees)
    Working with a great team
    The executive team seems to really be on the ball
    Has a great mission and really works towards it - "A world safe from cyber attacks!"
    Very low BS. As CEO says, "We need to reduce the friction" and they follow through on it.

    Cons

    Mountain of technical debt
    CI/CD is maturing, but has a long way to go
    Whiny millenials

    Advice to Management

    Keep the level of friction low as the company continues to quickly grow.
    Don't let investors ruin a great company and culture.
    Get developers talking to users more.

    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.

    I have been working at Carbon Black full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
