    I have been working at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Great products, documentation and customer focus compared to the competition * Competitive salaries and RSU's. Many reviewers complain about the 401k, but I take stock-based compensation over 401k's at any time * Pure-play cybersecurity company which actually values security internally and focuses on delivering the best security solution to customers. This is unfortunately not always the case in our industry * Excellent on-boarding and training resources * Never had trouble getting the budget for my projects/ideas * High growth company with many opportunities to grow with the company

    Cons

    * New Senior Management drives an authoritative leadership style which starts to trickle down to Middle Management and Line Managers. * Projects are coming down from top management at a high pace, with no prior notice and impossible deadlines. This is not "run fast", but "run fast here, stop, run fast there, stop, repeat". Everything is important and urgent. There is no visible or coherent long-term strategy. * HR is not effective, even for Managers. Many unwritten rules, little presence of HR Business Partners and the bell curve is enforced for the distribution of performance ratings * Many tool migrations with little business benefit create a background noise of busy work. There is a fine line between "moving fast/agile" and "no direction/chaos" * Management supports the "tribalization" of employees into employee networks, while failing to create a diversified and inclusive leadership team themselves. C-level is 90% male.
