  • COVID-19

    We have taken – and will continue to take – proactive measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19. These measures include preventative sanitization at all Fortinet sites and social-distancing for those essential employees who must be on location to complete their duties. We have also implemented a remote worker policy according to local order guidelines for many locations around the world, aggressively restricted travel, and taken many other cautionary steps. We have also committed to no COVID-19 related layoffs through Q2 2020 to assure employees that they are our top priority, and so our partners and customers can continue to rely on Fortinet to support and protect their organizations. We also understand many employees are balancing families and work, or perhaps family members that need extra care. Therefore, all leadership teams have been instructed to help make accommodations for any challenges that may arise.

    I have been working at Fortinet full-time (More than a year)


    I've just completed 1 year working with Fortinet! Training and learning from my peers and my team has been excellent. Company gives it's employees a sense of belonging through their stock options (RSUs) and really helpful in managing work life balance though the flexible work timings. Company is apparently believes in "a happy employee is a productive employee", so it takes good care of it's employees through various employee benefit programs. Management and HR team is very supportive. I can say this is the best company compare to others where I've worked till now.


    No organization would be 100% satisfactory and would provide everything that is needed. So, be happy with what is available.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fortinet (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in November 2018.


    I had two on-site interviews that started with a multiple choice and written test for about one hour, followed by a technical interview with the hiring team for another hour during the first day. The second interview was technical and more specific which they asked some questions about a few different schematics that they gave me.
