    I have been working at Carbon Black full-time for more than 4 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...

    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.

    I have been working at Carbon Black full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Ive been at CB for over 4 years now. I have seen it grow from 200 to over 1200 employees in my time here and there is one thing that is consistent - THE PEOPLE AND LEADERSHIP HERE ARE GREAT! I have never worked and seen people that are as friendly and willing to help one another than at CB. Our leadership team does its best to be as transparent and accessible as possible even as we have scaled. Be ready to work hard!

    Cons

    Scaling has come with its fair share of growing pains. Some processes are dated and are being worked on but that still causes some friction. As we have grown, groups have begun to get split off from one another and communication isnt as great as it needs to be. No 401k is a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to what has made Carbon Black great - the importance of your people and having solid products. Keep the level of transparency in decisions. Lets work together not prioritize just the team you manage.

      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...
