Working at Palo Alto Networks
Marketing & Sales Intern (Former Employee) –  Plano, TX11 September 2017
This internship taught me a lot about sales and marketing. I was hoping for more training and interaction from the management, and I was mainly left alone to research the company and was not given much direction.

A decent company, but some people not well matched to roles
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA14 July 2017
A positive and friendly working environment, but some are a questionable fit for roles. Pigeonholing makes advancement difficult for some, even as those perceived as less qualified are brought in from the outside. The thinking behind many strategic decisions is not generally communicated, and it seems the workforce is expected to focus solely on execution. Sometimes seems overly concerned with competitors rather than customers.

Still, if you just want to keep your head down and learn about security it can be a good place.

The end goal of security is to enable your operations to flourish and keep your organization out of the headlines associated with cyber breaches. This means reducing the likelihood of a successful attack. By focusing on preventing successful attacks, the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform reduces cybersecurity risk so that it is manageable and quantifiable, allowing organizations to compartmentalize their biggest threats and focus on business operations.

Excellent products. Excellent service. Extremely stressful environment.
software engineer (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA4 November 2015
The security industry is constant warfare and you are ahead of The Bad Guys. The issues are incredibly complex and your knowledge needs to be broad. The hardest part of the job was the constant state of emergency in the wild. The best part of the job was knowing that you helped solve incredibly difficult problems. The other hardest part of the job is that nobody noticed that it was you who helped solve it.
Pros
healthcare, good cafe, excellent compensation, strong leadership, solid products, excellent product reputation, innovation
Cons
increasing office politics, cramped work spaces, poor work-life balance, no help with training

Supporting Operation team in month end closed is totally different environment than working within the Finance people.
People in Operation are more flexible and laid back, they do not really understand the accounting concept. However, they are very fun to work with.
People dress more casual, and cubicle decoration on your birthday
