    I worked at Mandiant full-time

    Pros

    Great comp, stock rsu's, great name recognition within industry, assignments with big clients. Great if you are a whiz in security.

    Cons

    No training, unreasonable expectations. Can be thrown to the "wolves" very quickly. Managers are great engineers but not great with developing from within. Apply to Mandiant if you are mid level to senior, don't mind traveling, and know your stuff.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Mandiant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to see the latest and greatest in regards to intrusions. Many knowledgeable coworkers ... will learn everything you ever wanted to know about security.

    Cons

    All tools are either open-source or dated by almost a decade. While a great name brand, it may not hold a future with better upcoming technologies.

  6. "Great Place to Work Before FireEye Acquisition"

    I worked at Mandiant

    Unique work environment, talented people

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mandiant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good. Salary is low but bonus and extras are good.

    Cons

    Technical consultants are awesome but management is tyrannical. The company has lost a lot of talent leaving. The company talks crap about its customers and lack of security. It is off the hook hearing some 22 year kid talking smack about the lack of security a company did not invest in. They do not train to advance talent to management.

    I worked at Mandiant

    Pros

    World-class talent, mission-oriented mindset, working "incidents that matter", good compensation & benefits. Having Mandiant experience on your resume lets you command a premium salary-wise when its time to move on.

    Cons

    The acquisition by FireEye caused a massive talent exodus due to a shift in business priorities (profit instead of respectability & renown) and pressure to cut down on overhead costs. An idiotic corporate travel policy enforced by FireEye & being constantly on the road combined were a major morale sap. Leadership & experience within the Professional Services component was gutted when several long-time Mandiant employees refused to push FireEye product on customers. MCIRT was neutered and hamstrung by bad/incompetent management eager to satisfy unrealistic demands by FireEye. Intel team gutted and demoralized.

    I worked at Mandiant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    the office space was very nice.

    Cons

    i was told to "step up my wardrobe" by my direct supervisor even though I never left the office for my job. most people around me wore jeans and a t-shirt. basically i felt like i was eye candy and nothing more.
