You don't want to work for this company!
QC Technician (Former Employee) –  Derry, NHNovember 12, 2018
I wouldn't want my worst enemy to work for this company. Fireye along with the owners(United Technologies Corp.)are always preaching about ethics and professional behavior. They posses none. Fireye is run by the most unethical, unprofessional, discriminating, demoralizing people I have ever experienced. Certain people and managers will lie to your face with smile and then stab you in the back with slanderous remarks to others. The HR department will never defend the workers rights and ignore the complaints that are filed. Harassment complaints against management are swept under the rug unless complaints are raised against hourly employees. Those people will be demoralized to the point where most will walk out, even without another job to go to. This is by far the worst place I have worked.
Pros
None
Cons
Worst management ever.

Common Manufacturing Issues
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  New HampshireJune 17, 2018
The pay is too low. The company is owned by a large corporation that always puts pressure on management to reduce cost and increase profit. This leads to persons being fired, and others being asked to do more work without any compensation for the increased responsibilities. The bonus structures promote employees coming into work if they are sick.

As a manager I had autonomy and space to make decisions. My management supported me. My colleagues were also supportive. There were work activities and clubs to join. FireEye has a very strong Toastmasters club at the HQ.

Very technical and positive environment. Be willing to learn a lot, work hard and understand the competitive landscape. Expected to have your own server farm environment to prove or disprove competitors claims of their features and functionality.

FireEye - the place to be Pre IPO
Corporate sales/Enterprise Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Milpitas, CANovember 14, 2017
Such a great experience learning and adapting into Information Security with FireEye. I learned about Network, Email, File, Mobile, Endpoint and more related to ITS. Management always lent a helping hand and allowed individuals to progress if they showed the passion and drive. Work environment was extremely team oriented, everyone on the same war path with the same goal!

hardest part of the job was leaving when the company made drastic changes. Most enjoyable part is the memories and success I had while there.
Pros
lunch, full snack bar drink bar, great people
Cons
poor stock

Fun Start Up to Sell Out
N/A (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VASeptember 18, 2017
I started with iSIGHT Partners in its prime. I slowly watched it grow into a great company that then out of the blue changed directions and was sold off to FireEye.

FireEye is the opposite of what iSIGHT Partners was in nearly all aspects. No amount of perks can make up for the lack of direction, poor management, silent rifts and poor quality of employee culture.
Pros
Free lunches if you consider that a "pro"
Cons
The Company
