    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The technology seems to be great, but the Federal government is incredibly slow in adopting the technology, which is worrisome.

    Cons

    The management is very arrogant and removed from the employee satisfaction and experience. Their sole focus was a successful IPO.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the market to which you are trying to sell. Speak to the employees directly to learn. Challenge lower management to do their job.

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a consultant, I was treated as a member of a team of professionals.
    No unrealistic expectations - when I worked after hours or from home, my contribution was noted and appreciated.
    Clear direction - My manager was certain to ensure that I knew what was expected of me.
    Nice free snacks, nice fitness center - open to contractors too.
    Have worked in a number of environments as a consultant. Have rarely enjoyed a posting as much as this one.

    Cons

    Growing rapidly. This presents typical growing pains. They've got no illusions and are addressing them.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of your market!
