    Pros

    Technology playground, Cisco, Microsoft, F5, polycom, Juniper, Infoblocks, SourceFire
    You get all the software you need to do your job and showcase to your customers

    Fast approvals wih structured approach.

    Great pay and good partner training with bonuses

    Cons

    Need to improve cap strucuture for sales. Need kore incentive to make kore for the company. When you are at max quoata what is the incentice to work harder. Would rather spend time with my kids instead of work for another persons bonus.

    Advice to Management

    I found that treating all emplyees respectkfully and making them feel important especially if they feel insigmificant can help that person focus on their work and feel good about themselves. Awards and peer recognitiin helps but the biggist benefit management can endorce is great ethics where employes feel falued and important for what theymdo for the company.

     Management needs to better educate employees on the employe positions. There are many roles and situatiins where you need to know who to go to and for new employes there is limited guidance..Better informatiin on who to collavorate with will reduce confusion among teams. Si,mple diagrams hy employee tyoe will do. Also need to know who reports to who.

    Pros

    Fun team of people to work with, no shortage of after hour activities, and a part of a fast-growing business, which creates a number of opportunities for those who are interested in advancing their careers.

    Cons

    Hard work & high expectations. It is a bit of a self-starter culture where you have to seek a lot of information yourself to be successful. If you are direct with those around you when you need help, the team is always willing to jump in, but everyone is busy and you must have the right personality to be successful here.

    Pros

    Fast-paced business that is growing rapidly. Rapid growth offers new opportunities for existing employees. Company invests in their employees - training, professional development, mentoring. Employees have opportunities to work with numerous partners (Cisco, Microsoft, Juniper, Riverbed, F5, Infoblox and more) and various consumption models (on prem, hybrid, cloud). Leaders are approachable and engaged. Company works hard to communicate the strategy and align departments with this strategy.

    Cons

    Fast pace sometimes means long hours. Pay is decent, but not outstanding.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize key contributors outside of sales.Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great people, a company that understands the definition of the term "work / life balance," challenging projects, a company that wants to be on the bleeding edge of technology offerings, global footprint, opportunities to grow if you want them. For those who show initiative, this company rewards them handsomely. If you're just a bump on a log waiting for something to be handed to you, it's not going to happen for you.

    Cons

    Very little in terms of cons. This company looks out for its employees and does what it can do hang to talent.

    Pros

    There are loads of opportunity to advance if you put the effort in. There is a focus on employee retention, and work life balance. While sometimes after hours work is necessary working in a 24x7 global environment it is recognized. There are many parts to the company, and as such there are many different directions to take your career. You just need to understand what is out there, keep an eye on the tools provided and keep in contact with your manager. They will help you evaluate your current skills with the direction you want to take your career and provide opportunities, when available, to bring your skill set up to where it needs to be for that future role.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, sometimes calls after the standard 9-5 day are required when working in a global company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your staff and keep doing what you are doing.
