    I have been working at Blue Coat Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since going private the company has been pretty stable in terms of job security. Bonuses have been good.

    The benefits are pretty good. Vacation/Sick time is especially good (the best I've seen) and I have never taken any flack for using it. There are a lot of company activities and lunches including frequent technical training talks.

    Work/life balance is good. I don't know many people that work a lot of overtime and schedules are flexible, at least on my team.

    My experience has been that people are treated like adults and not micro-managed.

    There are free drinks/snacks.

    Upper management seems to have a pretty good vision of how to keep the company growing.

    Cons

    They delayed merit increases by several months both of the last two cycles. The review process is de-motivational and managers are way too overloaded to pay any attention to career development. There is no clear path for advancement once you get to a senior level position. Performance ratings feel arbitrary with artificial limits placed on how many people can get higher ratings (which are tied to better bonuses now).

    The downside of all the fiscal discipline has been that there aren't enough people to get all the work done so most people wear multiple hats. They don't generally require overtime but there's always so many competing priorities that a lot of things get dropped or mismanaged simply because there's too much going on.

    They are implementing some really draconian security measures for engineering.

    This is a very much a top-down company. Individual innovation is not valued or appreciated very much in less it happens to be related to something sexy. The focus is entirely on implementing upper management's vision as quickly as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop messing with raises.
    Give people some breathing room to allow for more focused work and some bottom-up innovation.
