    I have been working at FireEye full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined FireEye/iSIGHT in Reading (UK) early July 2017 and can objectively say that my recruitment was handled with great professionalism.

    In addition, both my on-boarding and training where organised and delivered in such a thorough way that I am now starting to be productive for the business and deliver on expectations, which obviously makes me feel good and want to go the extra mile.

    Benefits are excellent, good work/life balance with a growing customer base.

    Cons

    Having worked for the company for only two weeks, I have not come across any cons yet.

    Advice to Management

    None yet

    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    After a rough couple of years the company has made some great new senior hires inc new EMEA VP who is a class act - driven, team oriented and proven. Impressive product set supported by the secret consulting sauce (mandiant) and top notch intel insight as core differentiators. Positive culture and without wishing to sound cheesy so far has delivered on potential to be a very compelling proposition and an enjoyable/fun place to work.

    Cons

    Distributed workforce across most of the EMEA countries you'd expect means lots of empowerment (ie you need to be a good proactive communicator).

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people and rebuilding the environment to allow people to succeed.

    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well-balanced portfolio with cutting-edge technologis focusing on APTs or zero-day exploits. 6 product lines integrated into a real-time, cloud-based platform which provides prevention, detection and assists with remediation against sophisticated cyber threats. Services business unit consists of SOC facility handling APTs at prevention and detection phase and Mandiant consulting dealing with the cyber attacks at remediation stage as well as providing vulnerability assessment and pen. testing. Threat Intelligence business unit maps out adversaries and by following international APT groups on a global level enables stopping the cyber attacks at a prevention level. Dynamic environment, great team and high level of flexiblity and independance are combined with tough but achievable targets which are greatly rewarded.

    Cons

    Fast growing in a highly competitive environment with a constunt evolution on a product/solution and technology side comes with its price tag. Sometimes operations and support are hanging in the back Those challenges are constantly monitored and addressed at all levels.

    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great solutions that provides a massive opportunity in the cyber security space. Strong customer base and loyal alliance partners. Not much more I can add here.

    Cons

    It has the worst company culture imaginable. Middle management are the main culprits. There is inconsistency of market approach and a lot of "yes" people who cannot deliver. You cannot plan, strategise or execute anything and follow through as everyone has an opinion and therefore direction changes too easily. You just get nowhere. The attrition rate is so severe too and you have to ask yourself why that is.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company - a takeover will shake all of these problems and people out.

    Pros

    - Great for people who aren't afraid of a challenge.
    - Competitive compensation plan.
    - Technology leader in market segment.
    - The people working at FireEye are some of the best in the security industry.

    Cons

    - Employee turnover, but I guess it's expected with fast growing companies.
    - Employee training/development was limited only to company technologies/products.
    - Niche market with increased competition.

    Advice to Management

    More employee development programs would be good. I left was because of the lack of career development opportunities.
