    Pros

    - Amazing culture, focused on supporting each other, integrity, inclusion, and diversity - Great support from managers and senior leadership - Product management is regarded with high respect here; it's a very product-centric company - This is hands down the best cybersecurity company in the world, in terms of product quality, how much our customers love us, and how dedicated we are to keeping the world safe.

    Cons

    - The team is working on it, but diversity in cybersecurity still needs a lot of work. It'll take time, but the company has the right approach.

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good stock packages for employees - Great strategic vision on future of security + strong product fit - Culture from acquired teams keeps a more startup-y vibe.

    Cons

    - Internal competition and politics across business units makes it difficult to get work done, and results in lots of strategy pivots and rework. - Lots of new leaders from big companies - not leaders from mid-size companies who know how to become big - results in a lot of areas where you're building the car while driving. Company is too big for that to be OK. - Internal IT kit on employee laptops is unsuable when traveling. Forget about airplane or hotel wifi.
