    Disappointing culture and stopping remote work

    Pros

    Compensation is OK, and there are some really interesting projects to work on. I would say that almost everything in your career success here is based on the team and project you’re working on — there are a lot of micro-cultures, so there are some pockets of really incredible people doing incredible things. I’ve met several different pockets of people who I love working, are great at their jobs, genuinely care, and want to do the “right thing”. Find the right pocket of people to work with who can insulate you from the broader Palo ecosystem and you’ll have a great time.

    Cons

    The “Overall Palo” culture is pretty terrible… C-level management has a reputation for being REALLY harsh and not making much sense — people have to spend a LOT of time managing up to them. Terrible at internal comms and policies. Last year it was “FLEXWork is here to stay - we’re making a commitment to letting you work when and where you want, forever”. This year it’s “Managers must be in the office 3 days a week”. They have MASSIVELY bungled the comms and positioning of this roll out (not to mention policy is terrible). As far as “big company” things go — they’re terrible. I’ve never seen a large company where it takes this long to get something through the IT department, Legal, or “Pricing”. Coordination between sales, GTM, and Eng is terrible.

    Palo Alto Networks Response

    People Team

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Our mission is so important and we are really proud to have been recognized for the way we support our employees working together on this mission each day. Our compensation and culture have been recognized by Comparably, which is based on employee feedback. We have always been as transparent as possible in our communications about remote working. We do believe that managers and director level individual contributors and above can best build our culture and contribute to the professional development and wellbeing of those early in their careers by being accessible in our offices a few days per week. We continue to lead with empathy and trust – schedules remain as flexible as they can around needs at home, and individual work. Our people who were hired into remote roles remain as is. We encourage you to work with your manager and team to identify the best times to collaborate in person, and to continue to take advantage of all that FLEXWORK has to offer, including our benefits, learning opportunities, our internal mobility program, and more.
