Room for improvement
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAFebruary 14, 2018
Most of the Manager's I had lacked people skills. The company needs to provide a significant amount of training for their Managers. I think this is true of most companies.
Pros
Free lunches, decent co-workers
Cons
Manager's use phrase like " I'll beat my people up "

Company is going through significant transition
Product Marketing Director (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJanuary 30, 2018
Good people, but a lack of strong leadership in marketing (in particular) amid significant changes equates to a stressful environment. I would proceed with caution.

Not a Good Place to Work
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJanuary 16, 2018
New management changed the work culture significantly and for the worse.

The acquisition by Elite Management resulted in layoffs across the company of over 10% of the employees - most of them seasoned veterans.
Pros
Free lunches 3 days / week
Cons
Unprofessional, disrespectful Exec management, non-collaborative environment

Resident Engineer (RSE) (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WADecember 21, 2017
Sky is the limit to learning however there is a price for that. You work a lot, both days/nights and your phone will ring non-stop. This position is not for the faint of heart, you must be dedicated to the job and be willing to put up with non-sense. But the technology is amazing and if you are a technology person who likes to solve problems and help out then this is the job for you.
Pros
Long lunches if time allows
Cons
Work, work, work all the time

Good company with great products
Sales (Current Employee) –  RemoteMay 23, 2017
Gigamon is a company in transition, from a smaller company to a major player in the marketplace. With that transition, comes a bit of turmoil. Startup managers are gradually replaced with seasoned managers, it will be a better place to work once that transition is further along.
Pros
Great technology, great co-workers
