    I have been working at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is working on great products and the CEO has a great vision on where he wants to take the company. There are perks like snacks, events (happy hours, farmers market, employee clubs, etc). The people are great to be around.

    Cons

    They do not always hire the best people, managers can be inept, and there are some people that are very set in their ways and do not want any change as they scale.

    Pros

    Great Product portfolio. I would have rated the company a 5 three years ago.

    Cons

    Culture is changing, unless you are from google you might not fit in. Bad environment and as a result people are leaving.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good. Great products. Like the vision of the new CEO and where the company is going.

    Cons

    No regular promotion Employee hardwork is not being recognized even though they say so. Pressure is being passed from the top to the front end employee. No Work life balance at all in some accounting and finance teams.

    Pros

    Great product and brand recognition

    Cons

    Used to be a hire from within place with a great culture. New management doesnt seem to have a great grasp of what we do and culture has overall gone downhill. Pay isnt great and people are constantly left in the dark

    Advice to Management

    Work on keeping this a place that people want to show up to

    Too many sales reps in a patch. Hard for sale rep to make his/her number.

    Understand the potential for revenue in a territory before you just throw sales teams wanting an increase in revenue all in the name of "coverage".

    Pros

    great place to learn and great product to learn. willingness to work with for work life balance. feed you lunch on Wednesday but is almost always Indian food.

    Cons

    starting out new can be rough with all the assessments. Training is very fast and trainer in Plano does not like to help weaker candidates. There is a lot of favoritism in getting promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Director should be more involved with promotions to keep managers from promoting favorites.

    I have been working at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    *fast paced *great product *frequent cross collaboration *work-life balance

    Cons

    *no advancement, especially for women and people of color *career opportunities and growth go to the "boys club" and "cronies, if you are not part of either, forget trying to get ahead *D&I is all hype, lip service and run by all the wrong people, it's clear this effort is only to "check the boxes" *HR cannot be trusted, they have failed in so many ways and too often, some of the management and people... partners need to go *too many friends working for friends here, this practice gets in the way of good decision making and judgement, bad for business *don't you dare report bad behavior, concerns or give your bosses feedback, there will be retribution and you will be made to be the "problem"

    Advice to Management

    *company has lost many talented, hard working, culture fit people, because of the cons listed above *get the weeds out of the garden *walk the walk, hold people accountable, especially people managers, sr. leadership and most importantly, the executive team *when employees come to you, for guidance, support or to raise an issue, listen and take the initiative to make a change for the better. choosing to ignore... the problem does not solve anything and managers who conduct themselves this way should not be in management handling people or in some cases, running a whole organization *nikesh and liane, fix the plumbing, we are counting on you!
