      Pros

      Team spirit, can do attitude. Supported by management. Fast pace. Fair pay and benefits. Flexible working.

      Cons

      Sometimes lacks organisation. Some friction in processes or lack of ability to get things done. Demanding culture (very results driven) with lack of resources (mostly people)

      Pros

      Great products, great market opportunity, great brand, great stock price, great peer working relationships.

      Cons

      Not customer or external focussed enough. Too much time wasted on internal politics, lack clarity, lack communication, lack structure, talk frequently about the importance of work life balance but that’s the issue, just talk.

      World class products and services that still leads and often defines new markets.

      Becoming very organisationally complex which can impact internal agility and suffering some cultural dilution from some of the acquisitions.

      Toxic workplace

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are some great people working there, they pay well and have some great technology.

      Cons

      Especially in EMEA there is a toxic workplace that comes from the EMEA Management Leaders - very old school, dog-eat-dog, bullying culture. Although they have bought a bunch of more modern technology, the core focus of the business is selling firewalls - everything else comes second

      Pros

      Dynamic fast moving organization Awesome brand in security Stock performing well Good benefits

      Cons

      Totally top down organization and each tier of management seems to just parrot the VP level initiatives down the management chain with no scrutiny of policy and strategic initiatives. No formalized means of feedback from the bottom up. There is lots of new tech to learn about, due to the endless platform evolution through acquisition. However, technical enablement is not well structured, with countless learning initiatives coming from all directions. There seems to be no centralised provision of a coherent enablement program and no single point of time-accounting for the endless learning/training requirements. Lots of pointless non-technical "must-do" internal activities that take us away from selling. The training and development side of the role is starting to seriously eat into customer facing time and selling time. Is that really where we want to be as an organization?
