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

    Pros

    Fun perks and free snack, great Xmas party, gorgeous camping,

    Cons

    What used to be a collaborative environment is now a protect yourself mentality. Gone are the days of team work and striving for what’s best for the company and customers. With the new executive team it’s a do or die mentality.

    Advice to Management

    The company was built by smart people. Bring back the basics of operating with no ego and doing what’s best for the company.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Its a very nice company to work for. As it is a US company everything is planned, everything is based on a procedure, they are focusing on automizing, and documenting everything. The Salary is really good, stocks and benefits are really great, helps a lot with keeping the staff there.

    Cons

    have to say EMEA office is nice but the organisation and employees changed a lot since the beginning , the growth was unplanned so after certain time the qualifications were not completely met by candidates which pushed the company to hire people that would not fit with rest of the employee and the culture of the company.This created the disconnection and changed the culture in the organisation which made a lot of... good ones leave. My reason to leave was different as I looked for a change.
