I worked at ArcSight full-time (More than a year)

Pros

good company to work for, Friendly and effective working relationship between people and groups. Good work life balance.

Cons

Merging into HP changed the company's culture to the style of a large corporation. Arcsight has lost some of the its attractiveness but added some other aspects.

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

    Pros

    The company is full of smart people and excellent technology. The benefits are very good and so are the perks (snacks, drinks, happy hour, etc.).

    Cons

    Excessively political. The ability to get something completed is based on who you know in the company. The training program is inadequate to successfully prepare one to be successful. I'm a presales engineer in the east and have been neglected by my management. I am strongly considering working for a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on people development and less on politics. Too often people are promoted based on personal relationships and not industry expertise.

    Pros

    Nice Co-workers
    In today's economy - salary is fair market
    free lunch on wed
    flexibly vacation/time off

    Cons

    Support Management takes the approach that you need to sacrifice your life for the company
    Support Management does not consider the employees need for advancement and growth
    Support Management only sees you as an asset for business needs
    Support management squeezes the most out of you
    Support Management takes an elite approach / favoritism towards promotions
    If you are in a particular division of support - you may have a less stressful job - others are constantly stressed
    Recognition is not about technical merit but on your ability to kiss-ass to management

    Advice to Management

    Hire more headcount to reduce the unneeded stress
    Listen to the needs to the employee - growth - even horizontal moves are ignored
    Do not be in denial - almost everyone is looking to escape, however, the economy is not good - don't abuse the situation and promote growth and in return receive loyalty and excellent work attitudes
