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.

Good exposure to many different areas of the workplace, but little work/life balance
Employee (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMay 15, 2013
Will learn a lot in a short amount of time and gain valuable experience/exposure to many different parts of the job

Company runs very lean in terms of hiring, which leads to employees being overworked and puts on a strain on the work/life balance
