I have been working at Qualys full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They keep giving me good raises, bumping me to higher roles or offering me new positions within the company.
Never had layoffs or downsizing.
There are some rockstar engineers / sys admins who stick with the company and are great to learn from. Qualys has even allowed a few key engineers to work remotely when they move out of state.
The Qualysguard product suite is solid and the customer base is very loyal and diverse.
The CEO is a recognized visionary in the security space and he has successfully predicted the rise of WAS and compliance.

Cons

No 401k match.
No cell phone stipend.
Some 'growing pains' as company grows from small to large.
Too much churn in middle management, can't seem to hold on to good PMs.
Some of the positions that are filled overseas are a waste of time.
A lot of churn in operations department which creates more stress for existing operations people and problems for the whole company.

Advice to Management

Realize that overseas positions often create more hassle then results.
Find a way to hold onto middle management.
Reduce churn in operations department by reducing on-call work (create larger teams), pay industry competitive salaries and find a better work/life balance.

    I have been working at Qualys full-time

    Pros

    Work is fast-paced but not breakneck, and work/life balance is usually achievable with some bouts of chaos. General respect for engineers and engineering decisions at all levels, though information sharing between groups is still a work in progress and some things take a lot of complaining to get accomplished. Mobility is possible based on performance. Work from home occasionally acceptable.

    Cons

    Lack of 401k match; high churn based on politics and personalities at upper levels; lack of deep coworker camaraderie.
