    Pros

    Company is growing significantly, rapid expansion into EMEA. Huge opportunity for company and employees to develop and extend value across Enterprise further. Collaborative and positive work environment with good benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Growing pains, but in a good way, chance to define processes and build new initiatives...make a difference.

    Pros

    Free lunch friday A lot of good people Pay and benefits are decent

    Cons

    If you're considering taking a position at NetBrain and are looking to glassdoor for insight into the culture- decline the position.

    There isn't one department that has a majority of happy people. The sales team, for example, is set up for failure by default- the CEO sets pricing strategy with hardly any research, then changes it at whim leaving the account reps to salvage the burned customer relationship....

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your customers and employees. Improve communication and put thought into pricing strategy.

    Pros

    One of the things I like at NetBrain is working with the Managers, they are professional, outgoing and open to listen. Work life balance is key for me and they provide it. NetBrain also takes time out for the Staff, rewarding us for a job well done, which may include the day off or planning a group outing, which happens every Summer - to get together, play various games/sports, mingle, eat and enjoy each others company....

    Cons

    Haven't experienced anything negative at NetBrain, my Boss is down to earth, direct and has an open door policy and always has an ear to listen and advise me, if I have any concerns.

    Advice to Management

    As fast as NetBrain is growing, there will be growing pains. Continue with the company Town Hall Meetings, as this is the way the employees get an opportunity to know how the company is doing and provide input if required. The CEO has always been transparent in his actions, from what I've seen in my tenure so far. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I started with NetBrain about a month ago. So far it's been great. The people are smart and helpful, they offer fantastic benefits. The company has an amazing product with a solid customer base. This company no doubt is growing and doing very well.

    Cons

    Like any company looking to grow there maybe a few hiccups along the way, but the changes leadership is making will catapult this company to the next level of success.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping investing in the development of the product and your people. Continue to foster a collaborative work environment with a culture that focuses on customers and employees.

    Use customer feedback to drive product design goals, focus on hiring staff to make and sustain the product, over just selling it.

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

    Pros

    If you are a freshly graduated student, you can learn a lot from overwhelming tasks

    Cons

    As a developer, be prepared to work overtime, the default off-hour is 6 pm every single day, no work from home, no work-life balance, and occasionally you have to have meetings at night with oversea coworkers. You could ask vacations but managers will try to convince you to cancel it because the work will be delayed. R&D management likes to set up unrealistic goals and change the plan every 3 months. All teams...

    Pros

    Professional, kind, caring work environment. Work with the brightest and the best.

    Cons

    I honestly don't see any. I guess more flexibility in working remotely would be appreciated having come from that environment. Commuting cuts down on productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open. Change is easier when everyone understands the purpose.

    I have been working at NetBrain Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Technology is good, but others are catching up

    Cons

    No long term chance to be successful since CEO just fires anyone that disagrees with him. He just fired top two people in sales, including CRO because he feels he is a better sales person. The CEO is now effectively the CEO, CRO, CMO, CPO, CTO, CFO, GC, and CHRO. One leader and the rest do what he says or they are gone. Most of the top sales talent has either resigned or are actively looking.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let professionals run the company. This mom and pop 15 year old start up deserves a chance
