    I have been working at FireEye full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - great team members, very smart and innovative - company has many innovative ideas for the future - company encourages members to innovate on new ideas for the product(s) - flex time off (not restricted to the typical 14 days a year) - open to remote work

    Cons

    - while many innovative ideas are out there, prioritization can sometimes make it feel like some projects just keep getting pushed back - no 401k match - culture of "scrum" and agile development, but implementation is lacking sometimes

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FireEye full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks. Good computer setups. You'll probably learn a lot at first. Some coworkers are very smart. Good, cool, smart CEO.

    Cons

    You can easily get paid more at many neighboring companies for doing the same job. FireEye will pretend they pay competitively, however, which is easily disprovable. No 401K matching. Benefits are mediocre. Free lunch was offered but was terrible. You can work very hard and not be rewarded for it while others will advance who did less. Unclear, inconsistent promotions. Nearly zero external training given; they expect that internal training is all you need and want. It is likely you'll learn a lot less after about a year.

    Pros

    -Good work/life balance -Good benefits: Tuition Reimbursement, Paternity/Maternity leave, unlimited PTO, stocked fridges and snacks
