Pros

Smart, motivated co-workers who take pride in their work and in the product. Company invests in headcount and equipment and in keeping the employees happy. Bleeding edge tech that competitors are still trying to catch up to. Perks are nice, but are icing on the cake. Environment, teammates, and belief in the product are what matter most.

Cons

Growing pains as stated above. Company is shedding the vestiges of it's pre-IPO startup days but is still not there in terms of having mature processes and documentation where it needs to. Long hours and high work output are expected of you. This is no place for slackers or those who want to coast (this of course could belong in Pros. Facilities are crowded due to the explosive growth, but they are planning on ameliorating this shortly.

Advice to Management

Keep keeping employees in the loop on what is going on with the company. Transparency is always golden. Knowing what the short-term and long-term roadmaps are, give us something to shoot for.

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

    Pros

    Exciting times at a growth company. Cutting edge technology which is extremelly relevent for the times. Great people to work with, and new talent always coming in. Nice perks like free catered lunch, many free snacks and drinks, and fun breakrooms. A new building is opening up that will have one large new cafe to host all employees. Pay is very competitive, with nice benefits. A configured laptop as given to me day 1. Nice job.

    Cons

    Growth mode means little space and rooms available, but a new building is about to open up at the end of the month. Currently no match on 401k, but that is in the plans. Good core systems, but some auxilary systems and support need to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Open up to employees and communicate plans, vision, strategy. Direct managers meet with your team, and on occasion with your employees individually.
