I have been working at Blue Coat Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A company on the rise, with a global reach but small enough to feel noticed, with a very friendly, casual culture. The products are integral to where the internet is going. A genuine sense of camaraderie prevails.

Cons

It's an hour away from where I live!

Advice to Management

Perhaps support a bit more working remotely...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Blue Coat Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Office isn't too far from a golf range.

    Cons

    Senior management, including the CEO, VP's of Finance, Marketing, Engineering are clearly less than competent and cronyism is rampant. The culture is one of rule by-fear.

    Strangely, HR management seems to encourage cutthroat behaviour at all levels. There is no trust and no integrity at the senior management level.

    Advice to Management
