    Pros

    (From the perspective of a 2013 departure) A solid flagship solution with many good engineers and solution experts and a great physical environment. There was a lot of ambition and velocity pre-IPO and great plans to keep growing. My original team was a great, dynamic team.

    Cons

    Post IPO, new management was tone deaf and stubbornly pointed in new direction, which killed morale and revenue (as reflected by stock value). Plus, it was a very bad culture that can best be described as "tech-bro"and "sales-bro" with many sleazy practices that were eventually noticed.

    Advice to Management

    I've heard the course has somewhat been corrected by new execs but don't go back to hiring deaf management and blind HR.

    Pros

    Previous great management team - focused on the employees

    Cons

    New management team focused on themselves with little to no regard for employees

    Advice to Management

    The new management did not get you to where you are - the old management team did. Stop focusing on yourselves and take care of the employees who are still there despite multiple other offers I can assure you.

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

    Pros

    Market leader in their defined space for DNS, DHCP and IP address management. Widely recognizable customers that love their products. Global footprint.

    Cons

    Not in a position to compete for the best talent in Silicon Valley. On campus perks were already minimal when they started disappearing. No respected boundaries between work and personal life.

    Advice to Management

    When you start with unrealistic expectations of how much needs to be accomplished, they say we are all going to do more with less, the only outcome is low morale. Making short term decisions that damage the ability to accomplish long term goals is counter productive.

    Pros

    Great people. Great market opportunity with DDI, cloud automation, and security. Great customers, over 8000 well know customers globally.

    Cons

    Current CEO simply will not listen. Opportunities to migrate to SaaS offerings are huge, but reliance on product refresh cycles will kill the company. Further, he has brought in way too many big enterprise company (Cisco) employees. Exec and middle management are not aligned. Culture is being destroyed.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to employees and the market. No one in IT today wants appliances and bne forced to refresh every 3 years.

    Pros

    Good personal relationships, local teams were great.

    Cons

    Sales estaff is punitive and don't lead. Too much emphasis on bookkeeping and SFDC, not on actually selling. Expect a bad quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Back to basics or Microsoft will take over this space.

    Pros

    Great core product with a loyal customer base

    Rank and file that are good people

    Great niche to be in right now

    Cons

    Cisco/India Mafia taking over. Every management position that is filled is another Indian or Cisco refugee

    The Indians cannot make a decision to save their lives and the Cisco folks think they have all the answers. We are onto our third C T O since I started.

    No promotion from within

    "Manage Up!" is the mantra. The hell with the people below you, kiss up and throw workers under the bus as needed for lubrication.
