Inside Sales Manager - Federal Sales (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJune 27, 2017
Something new almost daily at a up an coming start up. Helped build the Inside team. channel and target Fortinet's largest accounts. I built the Inside team to 10-12 ISR's while bringing in the first million dollar and first 2 million dollar deal with the company. Worked eight years with Fortinet with several different roles. I was happy to see us go IPO when the market was not that strong.
Pros

very little marketing and too much turn around.

Good products with high performance and competitive pricing. Muddy future direction as no marketing that can chart a course. Sales management is a revolving door.

Aggressive growing company in Internet Security Space
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMarch 6, 2017
Part of a small team of Account Managers to support several large Fortinet customers. Team was responsible for all customer issues and carried an aggressive quarterly quota.

Fortinet is extremely supportive of their customer needs and employ a diverse workforce who are not afraid to take risks.

Enjoyed the time I spent with Fortinet and would both recommend and work for them again.
Pros
Growing Industry
Cons
Sales Management used threats of firing constantly if quota was not retired.

Fortinet Inc.
Sales Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJanuary 13, 2017
Fortinet Inc is thriving company that strives in innovation and technology but lacking in Marketing compared to other competitors.

The managers I had the pleasure of working with understood that their employees are human beings and treats them as such. Never had I ever had a manager that cared for the welfare of their people and their families.
Pros
Free Donuts at HQ, Free Coffee, Excellent Benefits, Essp
Cons
Dramatic changes, Engineer focused rather then marketing focused

Great Technology Company
Channel Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 9, 2016
Fortinet was a great company to work for with the right amount of autonomy and support. I learned a great deal about the tech market and collaborating with marketing and engineering to increase sales.

My coworkers were wonderful people who also truly believed in the technology. There were some challenges coming from the partner community who didn't necessarily believe in the value of the tech as much as we did, but the enjoyable part was teaching them and showing them leading with Fortinet would close new customers that would stick around for a long time to come.
