    I have been working at Aerohive Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love having ability to contribute within my team and also cross-functionally. It is very rewarding to see how our actions add up and result in new ways to help our customers be wi-fi happy! Aerohive is a super team oriented company! We value collaboration and helping each other. I am also lucky to work with great people who are extremely experienced in their area and can always teach me something new.

    Cons

    I gained 6 pounds during my first 2 weeks because there is A LOT of yummy stuff in the kitchens. Be prepared to have your "new-Bee" picture taken when you expect the least - just smile and enjoy :)

    I worked at Aerohive Networks full-time

    Pros

    Dyeing companies like this pay very well. If you can make the right people happy, you will get a VP title without having to move the needle on anything. Because nobody wants to work there hours are not bad.

    Cons

    Company is in such dire straights that nobody will take a senior job. Ex-sales guy was promoted to run engineering because no real engineering VP would take the job. When the head of marketing left, they gave the sales guy marketing too. If he likes you he will make you a VP though.

    I have been working at Aerohive Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The technical solution is awesome, and is still disruptive compared to competitors. During the last few years, many new products were added to the portfolio and Aerohive now has a complete access networking offer.

    Cons

    During the last couple years, the management focused on investors happiness, and broke the Aerohive team spirit we used to have. They also increased quota so they are no more achievable...
