    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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at FireEye full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - great team members, very smart and innovative - company has many innovative ideas for the future - company encourages members to innovate on new ideas for the product(s) - flex time off (not restricted to the typical 14 days a year) - open to remote work

    Cons

    - while many innovative ideas are out there, prioritization can sometimes make it feel like some projects just keep getting pushed back - no 401k match - culture of "scrum" and agile development, but implementation is lacking sometimes
