    Pros

    This is excellent place to work, you will get to learn a lot in this company.

    Cons

    Salaries are not that up to the mark and there is a lot of parity in that.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries is not that up to the mark as per industry standard. There is no effort for employee retention. No effort is being put to retain the employees.

    I worked at FireEye full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and lot of learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Lot of stress, Please leave work at office to avoid stress.
    Always come/leave on time so one can manage work life balance even though there is huge pressure of work and urgency of task.
    Sometime manager are managing employee remotely so they often forget time difference and push you any important work/task at time of employee leaving for home which lead to work at home/office lately.

    Advice to Management

    Changes constantly(Constant reorganises it self which is good, adapting new changes take time by employee which they must consider).

    Pros

    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.

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

    Work:
    • 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.

    Cons

    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!!
