    I have been working at Fortinet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Profitable and doing well that it hides all the political flaws

    Cons

    No ESPP (what public company has no ESPP?), only Sales gets all the love, no rewards for G&A, processes and systems are antiquated (like 1990s), communications are the worst I've seen in any company, COVID communications are close to null which is worrying my team, all decisions are made and controlled by one person - founder led/CEO; the Executive leadership team are not empowered; I know lots of talented people that have left Marketing after being there for less than 2 years; the HR team is a revolving door because they aren't supported; they don't know how to lead but they are very good at being followers of PAN; pay feels really low; hard to get things done because of difficult processes - company is very people dependent; they are very old school and not progressive; the scores on glassdoor is making the political truth.
