    Pros

    Infoblox in Tacoma has been a great alternative to driving into Seattle for a job with a tech company. The culture is fun and open, all the while working on exciting projects with big, interesting data. We get A LOT done, but still have work/life balance with weekly social events and regular office visits from executives at headquarters.

    Food ball, ping pong, ESPN on tv when you need to take a break, wine Wednesday social, free Friday lunch, chair massages on wellness days, and interested, challenging, and world changing projects. What else could you want?

    Cons

    Hiring a large amount of people and running out of office space quickly!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the morale high and keep telling us you appreciate what we do. It means a lot!

    Pros

    Infoblox is in a huge growth mode focusing on technology for network control and cyber security. The office is a newly built out space in an industrial building with awesome architectural features. Great people and atmosphere along with an energetic environment. There are fun events where employees can mix and mingle - high level of employee engagement. Some of the key values are "no jerks", "absolute integrity", "fun", "transparency" and "respect others". Great place to work!

    Cons

    No cons with Infoblox.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking about employees and culture to make Infoblox even more awesome.

    I worked at Infoblox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Be careful to note where the reviews are coming from. Folks in Tacoma are thankful to find a high-tech job close to home.

    Santa Clara employees are leaving and it's a depressing place to work.

    Good work/life balance in most departments.

    Cons

    Depressing to work there. "Who quit this week?" is a common refrain. Best people are finding new jobs and all of them are looking. Even the CFO is looking- he interviewed at another company but did not get the job.

    Layoffs every 6 months.

    Moving from 2 buildings into one means cramped quarters. CEO signaled in an email that Santa Clara will not be the long-term location for HQ.

    Owned by Private Equity, so no stock options/RSUs or ESPP reduces total compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Would suggest selling the company, but you did that already. Only option left is for you to get fired and replaced by people who know what they are doing (CTO is an exception).

    Pros

    Vista taking over management control
    Above average pay
    Nice facilities
    Large customer-base to leverage
    Still nice player for DNS technology

    Cons

    Most processes and practices are broken, hampering or not lived up to
    Inability to innovate across the board
    Pockets of jerks some with fascist features
    Uncertain future

    Advice to Management

    Too late

    I worked at Infoblox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good products.

    Decent benefits.

    The H.R. department is helpful.

    Cons

    Not a place to learn transferable skills. The market is too small, the technology is too narrow and business acumen is Neanderthal.

    Uncertain future.

    Employee turnover is hypersonic.

    Advice to Management

    Institute 360-degree reviews for everyone.

    The “No Jerks” value is a punchline. Take that off the wall.

    Pros

    Money was decent. Culture was fine and fun.

    Cons

    SP not front and center. Too much cloud talk - not enough strategy around what's the right thing to do. In fact no strategy around the company itself. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what you can do with Vista there. The existing Prod Management strategy for SP is great.

    Pros

    Great culture, great diversity, a lot of training to get clear understanding of their solutions, awesome location and work space, amazing support from everyone at the company when you need help, and all the great people.

    Cons

    A lot of products to learn about which can be tough for some people, but the company trainer is very knowledgeable and this just gave me more ways to knock down doors and set up meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the great company culture.

    Pros

    Good cash and you worked with smart people.

    Cons

    It didn't seem to have much of a mission element to it, and it was driven by Sales without a product vision.

    Advice to Management

    Less carping at executive levels and more passion around the product direction.
