Fun Team Events! Culture is very cooperative and cohesive. Open and engaging team members. Room for growth. Difficult to have life balance due to workload. Great management support. Stellar compensation!

It's changed. And not necessarily for the better.

The company had a GREAT work culture and strong technology. It still has strong technology but the culture has changed rather dramatically over the last four or five years. It's also grown by about 3x in that time, and some culture change is natural in that sort of accelerated growth mode. Still, there used to be a bit of a work-life balance there. That was gone by the time I left earlier this year. I had a GREAT team but a TERRIBLE manager. But overall the people there are quite smart and hardworking. It just got to be much more of a grind in the pandemic. And working fully remote didn't help that much.


The perks were nice. RSUs, salary, nice office, great kitchens, decent benefits.


"Flexible Time Off", as with most tech companies, is a total scam. We hardly got any time off.

The work life balance is excellent and your team are always there to support you

Absolutely lovely company to work for in my time here, great culture and fantastic products. You manage your own time, everyone is willing to help all of the time even if it is not their job.


Collaboration in teams

Ever-changing workplace that gives you flexibility

Love the workplace. There is always something new coming out with our products/service so it's a great place for someone who always wants to learn. There is so many opportunities in the org as they continue to grow and have a need for more talent.

Great products, excellent upper management team with a great future vision

Palo Alto Networks is one of the best jobs I've had in the tech sector over my 25 year career. The company culture is overall very good and executive leadership has a good vision for the future of the company. I also strongly believe Palo Alto Networks has the best security offerings in the industry. Pay and benefits are top notch.


Great company, outstanding pay and benefits, good technical and sales talent


Weak middle management, Middle management has little oversight from upper management, not enough employee feedback accepted on decisions that directly effect them

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

It is a fun place to work but I don't believe they do enough to keep their employees

What I don't like about the job is that they pay below market value and you have experiences where new employee coming in makes more than employees that have been there for a long time even though they are more skilled

Challenging and Fun Place to work

Palo Alto Networks is a great place to work. The teams are all supportive of each other and you will constantly be challenged by higher ups. Overall, I would recommend this company to anyone.

The best place I have ever worked

Seriously, I have had many jobs over my 28 years working...PAN has got to be the greatest. Great people, great management and extremely fair compensation and benefits. I have worked remote for my 8 years with the company so I cannot comment on culture or day to day interactions, however at company gatherings, it's an exceptional experience and I always walk away energized.

They pay well, but except TPS reports

They pay very well and the product itself is very good. The street seems to like what they are seeing in terms of acquisition and future direction. However, it can feel very micro-managed and too process oriented at times.

great company to work for

great company to work for. Not just the environment, but the people you work with here are amazing. I was a contractor and treated the same as all of the FT employees.

The projects are exciting but the work environment is toxic

Stepping on each other's toes to get ahead is highly encouraged. There is no sense of teamwork. Everyone is out for himself/herself! If you do not behave like this on a daily basis, do not go there.


Nice building - good compensation


Except for the very top executives, the mid level management is uninformed management who think they know everything.

Great products, but declining culture

This company used to be a phenomenal place to work. Since the change of most of the Executive Staff, so much has changed. The company culture has turned into cut-throat environment where it's about how many companies and products we can acquire versus how can we fully integrate all of our products, systems, and employees before going through it all over again.


Great salary and equity plan


401k matching is pathetic, and corp culture is tanked. When is Google buying us?

Great environment

Unstable management conditions. There was a huge changing of the guard at the time I was there which made for a confusing and sometimes unfair environment.

Fun place to work!

Company cares for their employees and for their community. They would have community days where employees could support their charitable organizations, etc. Company would celebrate employees birthdays every month, etc.

Pool Table Free Coffee

When you are on break you could go play some pool. There is free coffee offered at work. This is a good place to develop your skills and get real life experience.
