    I worked at Infoblox full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most folks are quite sharp and know their product well. Reasonable idea as to the business drivers in the networking field and trying to get ahead of wherever "cloud" is going.

    Cons

    perhaps a bit too quick into the whole "cloud" thing and didn't always allow the older products to sell as they could. MAY be a bit HQ centric.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the non HQ offices, especially getting input for design of new features, etc. You've got good teams out there, use them.

    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

    The people / teams are very good, but lack the overall engagement and direction by senior management.

    Cons

    Worst executive team. They are in it for themselves. A lot of talk with no action. They don't know how to work together as a team. Poor decisions or no decisions.

    Pros

    The company has impressed me so far. What I appreciate most is the organization and collaboration across business groups. The leadership has set the tone to mature the company and are doing so with forethought and organization that is rare in a mid-size company. The leadership team is approachable, passionate about what they do and bring the employee experience into each conversation.

    The on-site perks are great! There are farmer’s markets, rent-a-bikes, café with excellent choices so you don't have to think about lunch or snacks, on-site gym with regularly scheduled trainers and the environment is top notch.

    In my time here, I get the sense that employees are valued and appreciated. I get the sense that the leadership team is preparing for growth and setting us up for future success. Overall, it's been a great decision to join!

    Cons

    The company is evolving to a large company, so change is occurring. Even though change is hard, I see this as necessary for future success. It's a strategic time to join to help make an impact on the future!

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the operations of the organization so we are poses for future growth and success!

    Pros

    A few genuine individuals who do their best to improve company culture and the overall work environment. The CEO is extremely approachable, genuine and transparent.

    Cons

    Too many to list but here are a few of the highlights...
    > Attrition
    > Constant change in direction and strategy
    > "No Jerks" policy was published but not practiced
    > Nonexistent culture
    > Zombies in engineering
    > The campus leaves something to be desired

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the politics and do a major refresh of the engineering staff.
