    "Once a great place to work, now full of toxicity and egotistical politics"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at FireEye full-time

    Pros

    SOME of the people that still work there are amazing hard workers and great people

    Cons

    Newly promoted directors are out only for themselves, not for the company, or the teams reporting to them. They do not practice workplace ethics, nor do they live by the internal code of conduct that is constantly spouted out to employees. These directors are simply allowed to get away with this behaviour, and are in fact backed up by HR.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at FireEye full-time

    Pros

    Compensation package is above average

    Cons

    The Irish leadership team are weak, allowing inexperienced newly promoted or appointed Directors to hold the power. The sales teams are treated disproportionately better even though they are not performing. Departments like HR and facilities have no understanding of the business and corporate governance/ethics are not practiced here. Everyone in high positions are working to protect their position rather than working in the best interest of the company. Hard work is not rewarded in FireEye, instead, it is treated as some sort of disruptive behavior as it goes against the grain.
