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

    Pros

    I have been working at FireEye Bangalore over a year. I really enjoy this workplace. the main reason is that it is best place to learn, explore, and maintain work life balance. There is minimal bureaucracy and Leadership believes in giving freedom to employees. Some of the FireEye products are best in the market and detection capabilities are amazing. Coming to work culture. FireEye is "Great place to work" certifed. Trust me this is not easy thing to get like some of the marketing awards. This company is launchpad for many cyber security professionals. people have ample of scope to learn and establish the brands Benefits: Compared to any other FireEye sized companies, FireEye is above them. Some of the freebees include, lunch, snacks, Gym Cultural team is very active and keep the employees engaged throughout the year, even during the COVID times. There is strong support from US Leadership and Willing by Indian Leadership to grow this unit. Finally on the pros, you feel you are working for startup company, there is so much of energy and flexibility. There is recognition for performance and tenure as well One advice for prospective candidates is that never stop your learning, come with open mind and keep proving yourselves

    Cons

    FireEye is undergoing business transformation this is to keep business profitable and achieve strategic objectives. This has caused some headcount reduction. however as compared to other companies, FireEye has taken care to have minimal impact. however some reduction were inevitable which is unfortunate.

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

    Pros

    Great technology and some very clever people in parts of the company. Decent benefits, and the stock price seems to be getting stronger again.

    Cons

    Recent overhaul of management has put a group of people in charge of the company who appear to be out of their depth. They have zero understanding of the security market, and even less clue about working in a fast paced, high growth environment, so the energy has all but disappeared. What was once an inspiring company to work for is now a bit of a yawn.
