Everyday is an exciting day in the office, never know what to expect. It could be an easy going day and all of a sudden a high urgent issue comes up where it needs to be resolved within minutes. That is what make this job exciting. From DHCP issues to DNS issues, all types of issues are unique and sometimes complex. It's always interesting to troubleshoot and use tools such as tcpdump and Wireshark to see what's actively happening across the network. Not to mention, seeing interesting messages in syslog's. Management and co-workers are easy to work with and everyone get's along great. Everyone is open for ideas and ultimately work together to help make everyone's job and life easier.

SW engineer (Former Employee) - North York, ON
Most reviews and salaries on here are fake, entered by the HR of the company. Salaries in Bluecat are on the low end of the IT industry. Their developers make around 65-75K while in any other equivalent job they could have made 85-95K for junior and intermediate engineers. The job culture is as of a geriatrics hospital and there is zero vibe in the office (ok, there is a vibe of an elderly home care. I guess) The only good thing is that the work-life balance. They never work weekends or extra hours which is great. The office looks like a sweatshop in the far east and there are very few women in the engineering group (and most of them are not in tecky roles). To summarize, I would recommend Bluecat only if you can't find any other job or you don't look for anything challenging in this stage of your life.
Pros
Good work-life balance
Cons
Boring products, low salaries, horrible office space

Regional Account Manager (Former Employee) - Toronto, ON
Yes job experience, great environment, super nice people. It is a DNS company which is sort of boring, but they try to make it as fun as possible, with lots of parties and stuff. They are kinda rich as a company. Sale is intense, and they are growing fast.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
hard work environment

Sales (Current Employee) - Toronto, ON
People and culture make this place special. BlueCat is going through a lot of changes internally however and some employees get caught in the crossfire.
Pros
Subsidized lunches
Cons
long sales cycles
