    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).

    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

    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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Take top 3 issues from each group and fix them

    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.

    Keep the culture front and center, even through the next phase of change. Our people are the reason for our success. We've made great strides improving our culture over the last 2 years. We're on the right trajectory. Keep it going.
