    I have been working at Infoblox full-time

    Pros

    The people here are great, they live our corporate values daily and encourage one another. They also do amazing work and provide world class products and services that I am proud to be a part of. We also have fun events like wine down Wednesday, monthly company sponsored lunches and ping pong tournaments.

    Cons

    Nothing so far, it's been a great experience

      I worked at Infoblox full-time

      Pros

      Nice people, free snacks, and occasional free food.

      Cons

      Team is led by a micromanager. Manager ruled by fear, always asked where you went if you left for a break for too long. Long nights, sometimes staying until 1AM during month end.

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

      Pros

      There weren't any to speak of.

      Cons

      When they bought IID they used high pressure tactics to get contracts signed without negotiation. After receiving the first part of my signing bonus (six months) I wrote an email to my boss and his boss asking to discuss management (or lack thereof). My boss responded by retaliating. I tendered my resignation to HR. HR never even asked what the heck was going on.

      Advice to Management

      Jesper: People are saying the right things but information is not communicated timely or reliably. Good luck with that.

      Pros

      Good work/life balance Decent perks such as free food/snacks/drinks Unlimited time off if you're a salaried employee Some really great people doing some really great things

      Cons

      Extremely political Unrealistic deadlines for major projects Key players on major projects don't listen to the people actually doing the work Have seen others be cut down by envious coworkers Have seen the company values been used as weapons against some people C level players in many key aspects of upper management No real chance to move up unless you're hand selected by upper management Only way to get selected...

      Advice to Management

      Cut the values as they honestly don't mean much when people can weaponize them and use them against others.

      Pros

      Amazing culture - the morale couldn't be higher. The people are all very friendly, and the no-jerks policy is a reality. The products and technologies are relevant, and compelling. The company is self-aware, and is taking proactive steps to transform itself into a modern tech company that has a presence in the cloud. Lots of growth, and opportunity. If you're ambitious, there's plenty of avenues for you to progress...

      Cons

      The recent acquisition by Vista, and transformation of the company has had a morale and business impact in some areas of the company. (Though it's mostly positive for Infoblox, some sites bore a bigger impact and are still recovering in terms of morale) The future of the company after the Vista exit is unclear, which can lead to some FUD. Engineering could use some more project managers and Agile experts to help...

      Advice to Management

      Double down on the investment in benefits. Focus on long term incentives to retain senior talent. Beef up 401k match, find some kind of vesting motivator to replace RSU's, etc. Keep momentum on transformation initiatives - the company is moving in a good direction - and don't sweat the attrition for team members who can't see how the changes will benefit the strategic position for Infoblox. Continue the open discussions...

      I have been working at Infoblox

      Pros

      • Interesting tech. This varies team-by-team, though. I can't speak for the company as a whole. • Lots of opportunities to develop relevant skills, so long as you're motivated and care about getting better. • Friendly coworkers. • Pretty good work/life balance.

      Cons

      • Incredibly disorganized and chaotic due to poor management from the senior engineering managers. • Low engineering standards. Infoblox cares very little about code quality and common-sense development practices, which is a morale killer. • Infoblox has a very corporate atmosphere, which can sometimes gross me out (e.g. badly-used memes in company-wide emails). • Cheap. I don't buy that once-a-week lunches are...

      Advice to Management

      Establish a clear technical vision for the company. Most people don't know what they'll be working on in a week, let alone six months.

      Pros

      I am going on my 5th year at Infoblox and recently relocated to the Tacoma office from Santa Clara! I have enjoyed all 5 years at Infoblox because of the amazing people and culture. The growth opportunities at Infoblox are real -- I started as a Contractor and am now managing a team of four! I look forward to my text 5 years!

      Cons

      There are not a lot of cons to share

      I have been working at Infoblox full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Company cares about training and enabling the field. Lots of attention to training activities to drive the right behavior. First line of management as well as executive group aligned with the field in order to provide right outcome. Not devoid of stress but overall a good company to work for.

      Cons

      From time to time it is required for you to wear multiple hats making results difficult to achieve.

      I have been working at Infoblox full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I am very happy working here at Infoblox! My coworkers are fun, pleasant to work with, and very intelligent. My manager is extremely supportive and tries his best to help me grow. There is a giant beanbag, a well-used and well-loved Ping Pong table, and free monthly lunches (as well as free oatmeal, cereal, fruits, and snacks). Work is engaging. We use a lot of new technologies, so there's a lot to learn and grow.

      Cons

      The sparsity of free lunches. Currently, we have free lunches only once a month. I would give 5 stars if we got more free lunches.

      We will alert management regarding more free lunches :)
