    I have been working at Duo Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From the begging of the recruiting process it was clear that Duo was different from other places I have applied. The recruiting staff impressed me with their speed of follow up, willingness to answer all my questions, and setting expectations on how the process would work. Alissa Hebert was a pleasure to work with and made me feel like I was the only person she was recruiting, which I doubt was the case. From there I had great phone interviews with the Director of Corporate Security and Senior Manager of Security Operations. I was pleasantly surprised that both of them reserved at least half of the interview for my questions and concerns. They really wanted to make sure I understood the role and was comfortable with the job. Finally the on-site interviews was a fantastic experience and I left feeling even if I didn't get the job my time onsite was invaluable to my professional growth.

    The values at Duo are not an afterthought but guiding principles that are baked into everything from the hiring process to the products. It is so refreshing to work with such a diverse, supportive, and talented group of people. I have received more valuable feedback from my peers at Duo then in my previous 15 years of working combined.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge for me at Duo is the size of the organization. Historically I have worked in small organizations(<50 people) as a consultant and making the leap to being an employee has taken some time to get used to.

    Advice to Management

    The people, values, and a democratizing security product are what makes Duo an awesome company and a joy to work for. As long as management keep that in mind I see good things in our future.

    I have been working at Duo Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Where do I begin?
    * The management here sees itself as a support and guidance structure to help engineers achieve their goals. I feel empowered every day to do well at my job and build really cool things. In addition to people management, project managers at duo help organize and disseminate project information, taking a lot of the bureaucratic load off of us.
    * The workforce is inclusive, friendly, and (relatively) very diverse. This is reinforced across the company, from providing dedicated mother's rooms to starting off every meeting with appreciations.
    * Funding for continuing education.
    * Great projects and a mission I can wholeheartedly get behind.
    * So many more things that I can't count. Fresh fruit, snacks, meals at events. A really good help desk. Great events that don't feel like a waste of time (too many to go to all of them).

    Cons

    The influx of bureaucracy when joining with Cisco. That said, we're being shielded from a lot/most of it by Duo management, and many of the technical issues should be resolved soon.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. Your staff surveys I imagine keep you apprised of any issues before most staff have them. You're doing a great job with the Cisco transition.
