Turn over is the only thing that is constant here.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CASeptember 25, 2017
I would not recommend working here unless you really need the money. The work life balance is something that is already hard in the silicon valley, but with the amount of turn over here it is hard to have a constant vision from one manager to another.

CEO is very nice and humble. I wish the other people down the chain would follow his example.

Amazing workplace with a fun and innovative culture
Sales Engineer/Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 25, 2017
Fortinet believes in innovating and providing the Industry's best NGFW. The leadership has a very clear understanding of this vision and they have always taken the right steps in the forward direction. This makes it an ideal job for a Sales Executive like me as I can talk and sell my product without any second thoughts if my product can deliver.

Inside Sales Representative & Team Manager (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJuly 10, 2017
The company as a whole is great. Good product and relaxed environment. However, getting ahead is nearly impossible. Regardless of performance. Consistent headcount restrictions and reductions make promotions and transfers impossible.

Engineers and executives have the world here. Everyone else is just holding on.
Pros
Unlimited PTO
Cons
Advancement opportunities are slim

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

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

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
