Pros

Smart colleagues who are passionate about building great software.

Cons

Managers treat you like dirt and drive you like slaves. Pay is very low (20-30% lower than average) compared to rest of Bay Area but they say they compensate by offering more options (which may be worthless) and a bonus (which may be 0). There is no work-life balance - the VP expects you to put in 60+ hours a week. You are not given a chance to do a good job - as you are constantly switched between projects but are expected to have zero context switch downtime. You are forced to commit to artificial schedules that are contrary to your gut feeling, and, backed into a corner if you disagree. When the project goes over schedule (as you knew it would), you are forced to stay at work until it's done, to keep to the schedule (yeah, you don't get to go home until it's done!).

Ever hear of Labor laws, Infoblox? You've been violating labor laws for years now!

Advice to Management

When you treat your employees like dirt, expect to them to produce dirt instead of a product.

    Very knowledgeable and co-operative senior engineers. Challenging but rewarding work. Great work culture and friendly people. Immensely valued experience on a career based prospective.

    Work force management would not be the best. Need to get a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Workload needs to be even for all. Automation tools to an extent can help.

    Pros

    Employee Centric culture with great flexibility for employees to be involved in various challenges regardless of their role and their focus.

    Cons

    Recently, the company has gone through lots of changes that at the surface may feel exhausting, but every company transformation requires lots of change.. Infoblox is at the tail end of this change.
