  • Our #CMO, Vasu Jakkal made her first visit to our Pune, India office this week. She conducted a meeting focused on our future and held a great session on #womenintechnology.

    She also met the CEO of COEP's Bhau Institute of Innovation . The college of engineering showed keen interest in tying up with FireEye for Cyber Security knowledge sessions for the budding innovators and entrepreneurs.

  • #LifeAtFireEye | Recently our Cork employees threw themselves out of a plane for a good cause! 8 of the Cork FireEye team, 3 family members and 2 side-line supporters are proud survivors of a 13,000 foot freefall tandem parachute jump, raising money for Marymount Hospice in Bishopstown, Cork and an Ehler Danlos Syndrome patient. 8 hours and many false starts later, all 11 had jumped and most importantly, landed safely. Well done guys!

    I have been working at FireEye full-time (More than 3 years)


    Hiring/Compensation/Rewards & Benefits:
    • Hiring standards are very good.
    • Compensation & benefits are in par with industry standards. Never felt under paid :)
    • Most of the rewards & recognition are designed to be mutually valuable while in long term association. I personally feel financially secured while planning for a long term career at Fireeye.

    • Lot of decent residential societies close to Fireeye Bangalore office.

    • If choose to learn and deliver on specific programming language or technology opportunities are plenty.
    • Engineering heads are highly focused and there is always a thought process and plan for "how, what & why" for all deliverables.
    • There are no trial projects. Though quick POCs are done to evaluate, consider or discard technologies/ideas.
    • Every engineer is made to feel special and valuable. Every team member knows his/her deliverables for current and upcoming projects.
    • One can reach out to any level in the org to put forward an idea or change. People here listen to each other.
    • Mentoring on the job is very effective and is working out.
    • Cross team collaboration is very good. Never felt isolated work culture.
    • Managers – All managers are technical experts themselves and becomes easy to communicate technical challenges.

    Fun/Work-life balance:
    • Reasonable number of fun events, celebration of festivals & team building activates at work. My daughter loves "bring kid to work" day event :)
    • Cafeteria food is good most of the times. Special lunch during festivals is always good :)
    • Sports tournaments are well organized and I participated in some of the matches. It’s really well done.


    Some suggestions:
    • If we have few cross functional teams like product management and program management teams locally would help Bangalore team.
    • If we can have kids place inside office would help working parents to bring kids to work during sick day or school off days.

    Advice to Management

    Going great!!

    The interview process is good, focus mainly on coding. They take all the rounds focus mainly on your coding skills. Past experience doesn't really matter if you decode their programmes.
