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

    Pros

    The benefits and objectives of the company is very good. The company and management are very forward thinking.

    Cons

    In the local region, too many extra activities, to try to justify our existence which takes up a lot of time to prepare, and it seems that it is more for a political reason, although they mentioned that it is to see how they can support the team.

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good RSUs in the past with strong stock price. Market branding is still strong

    Cons

    The APAC team is now a joke and one big staged show. Cloud security is the way to go forging forward, unfortunately the company made all the wrong hires in the APAC team from sales to presales. The cloud sales team is made up of ineffective sales people who do not have the right contacts, context and security experience to drive the market. They spend more time on LinkedIn and putting up shows which do not result in business results. To top it off, it doesn't help that the field sales core team is still focused on selling hardware firewalls. The region is simply wasting the market away. The APAC SE head for the cloud overlay team is the worst of all. Arrogant, full of idiosyncrasies that are so outdated, ineffective and lacks what it takes to succeed in this role - most of the time riding and harping that he has been around with the company for some time. He simply doesn't have what it takes to drive the business and is pulling the business back along with his outdated thinking. HR and sales management talk a lot on diversity, but once again these are just shows that are put on LinkedIn.

    Interesting experience interacting with front line clients to deliver products

    Remote team, so you'll feel isolated most of the times and sometime demand from the marketeers can be unreasonable.

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company outside the team I was in is fantastic. Great vision and excellent benefits. Opportunity for growth if you are in the right place and have the right leadership.

    Cons

    Inside Sales in Singapore is the worst department I have ever been a part of. I regularly had no work to do, and was often and always shut down when I tried to add value with new ideas. The team of csrs and bdrs adds absolutely no value to the business and does not create any revenue. They are merely appointment setters and admin specialists that are paid like sales professionals. The inside sales management is biased and does not like anyone that stands up and thinks differently. I have seen new employees bullied into leaving for thinking outside the square or being racially different. This could have been a world class team with world class talent, except not one single person in the history of the team over the past 5 years has been promoted outside of the team to date (2019). This shows a lack of career path and a complete lack of development. The managers themselves have not been developed by their own director and it shows through the lack of direction and change within the team.

    I worked at Palo Alto Networks full-time

    Pros

    PANW is still one of the best place to work in despite the continuous massive growth pace. There are still good managers and colleagues within the organisation.

    Cons

    too aggressive growing, ignoring employee’s feedback at times.
