    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.

    Pros

    Used to be a great culture to come to work for; good people/vibe, flexible, and fun events. Not anymore.

    Cons

    Company going through transition after being acquired. Jobs all being shifted outside of Silicon Valley and offshore. Work environment and moral way down, people are fleeing rapidly.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees and not just yourself and what benefit only you and the executive staff

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

    Pros

    Great DDI technology. Infoblox is the clear leader. They should have a great opportunity to grow the company with DDI, Security, and Cloud.

    Cons

    As part of the Inside sales team, we have a really horrible manager/director. He provides no guidance, direction, or mentoring. He is incredibly negative and is the reason I left the company. I am really sad that Infoblox has let this manager ruin what was once a great team.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to the teams. Be positive. Remove the stale management that is negative, such as the Inside Sales Dir.

    Strong new leadership team. Cutting-edge products and a robust roadmap. A CEO who lives the values. Fun and caring environment. A lot of smart, committed people who are proud of their work. A really good culture to be around all day.
