Fun place to work
Technical Support Engineer I (Former Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIFebruary 26, 2016
It s a relaxed atmosphere to work in. The dress code is very informal. You see employees in shorts, sandals, Jeans and T-shirt, good place to start out at the entry level technical support. The hardest part was that there is favoritism within the co-workers. some tech support people will not help you. We only get half hour lunch. ...Most enjoyable part is that you are in the hub of Ann Arbor where there are many good eatery's for lunch..
Pros
Free good Coffee, Free Wednesday Bagels, downtown Ann Arbor, good places to eat lunch
Cons
low pay to start, almost no breaks, very busy

Dont work here
Tier 1B support technician (Current Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIJanuary 20, 2016
IT slavery, no advancement strategy. If you feel like working hard, but to only get told that you cannot move up into the company. You have to literally quit and then re apply to the desired department in order to progress.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
everything else

Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CADecember 28, 2015
Enjoyed starting as the 10th employee in the company and 2nd in command in the marketing department. Very hands off and was able to run with a lot of ideas and bring them to fruition. Really exciting environment and smart people.

No longer an engineering-driven company
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MINovember 23, 2015
There are some extremely talented people, but sales dominates the culture. Process took over at the expense of innovation. New talent is very difficult to attract.

Fun Place to Work with Very Smart People
Content Intelligence Analyst Intern (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CANovember 11, 2015
The management is very smart and I believe will drive the company to even further success in the future. Management also cares about individual success of their employees. Very young average working age within the company. Free food for lunch and everyone is great at communicating.

Busy technical support
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CAMay 11, 2015
The technical support department was also so busy due to a large amount of customer calls BUT the company does provide a great breakthrough in terms of learning new skills and advancing on the job.

Overall it's a decent company to work for..

Young technology company
Enterprise Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CAMay 11, 2015
Sales is divided into outside, inside and telesales. Starting at the bottom the average telesales rep is responsible for lead generation and upselling into existing accounts. The staff is very young and the company goes above and beyond to enhance the social interaction between departments.

Very strong product set with something for companies of all sizes.
Pros
Good parties, very strong inbound lead flow
Cons
no room for advancement

Great environment, not great pay
Customer Care Contact (Current Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIApril 6, 2015
If you are going into Barracuda as anything but Help Desk, I'd highly recommend it. If you are looking for an entry level position, like help desk, it's fun but there's no where to go unless you want to be a technician. I love the atmosphere, the people, some of the managers are great but not enough money for me to get by.

Fun working place with foosball table
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CADecember 21, 2014
Working at Barracuda Networks, the overall environment was fun. We were able to listen to music while we worked and we played foosball during breaks. Most co-workers got along, but the leads put a lot of pressure on the employees working on the assembly line, so they made it hard for everyone to get along sometimes. This was a fast paced, and very detail oriented job. I learned how every part of each unit worked and was able to advance to the quality control department.
Pros
free lunch and a lot of company events
Cons
management wasn't very understanding

Marketing (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CASeptember 3, 2014
Focus is on hiring cheap labor our of hospitality and food service industries that want to break into tech, working them until they get fed up, then letting them leave and replacing them with more from those same industries. Low pay and benefits and little to no career path unless you sit in an executive office. Very top heavy company.
Pros
reverse commute for most people
Cons
very low quality employees, dead end career path if you stay with the company, lots of politics

Start up company
Junior QA Engineer Load balancer Team (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CAJanuary 21, 2014
All in all this was a good company to work for, the pay was not great but they took care of you with good health insurance, and an excellent community feel. A typical day would be to review and fix about 15 machines, or develop better build procedures for the assembly line.
Pros
good community feel
Cons
low pay
