Good company; no worklife balance
Senior Manager, Accounting (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA7 April 2019
The company definitely pays you well to stay but the company culture and work life balance was very bad. I believe things have changed recently, hopefully it continues to get better.

Compensation package was great and they definitely know how to keep people on board by renewing the RSUs.

Work is challenging and the people are nice.

Major changes due to C-Suite Level changes
Sr. Director (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA3 October 2018
Change in leadership that is changing the culture. Good people are feeling inadequate and the critical nature of the executives is putting everyone on the defensive.

Great Technology, Good Culture, OK place to Grow
Field Account Manager - SLED (Former Employee) –  Plano, TX14 September 2018
Typical day is fast paced, everyone seems to love Palo until the Price conversation. so to be successful you have to get total buy in to the Technology and what it solves for. Then crafting a win win sales proposal. More often than not Palo wins.
The challenge will be the Software sales change the Company is making currently.

Leading Company in Security Industry
Senior Program Manager/IT Business Advisor (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CA25 July 2018
While a leading company in the Security space, Palo Alto Networks is struggling to mature. They hold on dogmatically to their startup roots but fail to realize they must evolve at 4500 employees. Much of the leadership throughout the company is not mature enough to lead their people through their growth. Too many of these leaders are ego-centric and only focused on their own agenda.

While working for the company is mostly positive in the short term, the lack of maturation progress will weigh on people 12-18 months in.

Worked together as a team, they made it easy to work. I enjoyed the lunch and learns, team building. Everyone pretty much kept to themselves and worked at their own pace. The hardest part of the job, was not knowing if you were doing a good job. The easiest part of the job were the people.

Principal Professional Services Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CA1 May 2018
Upper level management (VP and above) is quite good and involved. Director and lower level management needs improvement. The company is continuing to change a lot. Many coat tails are being used to bring in new employees.

IT Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA1 April 2018
There is no typical day at work here.

Every single day here is super challenging .

if you looking for a place sit down to relax, learn and code. This place is not for you.

The Company has many added benefits, team outings, various types of tournaments, performance acknowledgement ceremonies.
In Technical Support work time is work time. They expect participation and production, which the company deserves. The pace is fast and there is always work to be done. Palo Alto Networks was a great company to work for.
