Since I joined Arbor Networks two and a half years ago, I’ve been constantly amazed, inspired and encouraged by the innovative spirit this company embodies. We’ve grown significantly but we’ve been able to maintain an innovative, research-driven culture without losing that start-up atmosphere and enthusiasm. For engineers and developers who populate our Ann Arbor offices, that makes for one terrific work environment.
So it comes as no surprise to me that we’ve been honored by the Detroit Free Press as a top company to work for this year. This is a particularly rewarding honor since the award is based solely on employee survey data and nothing else. We employ some pretty incredible talent at Arbor – from the wealth of security expertise within our ASERT team, to the engineers who develop products that do nothing less the secure the Internet. Arbor is filled with incredibly smart and motivated employees and in my rather biased opinion, Arbor is absolutely worthy of this nod as a top company to work for.
I’m thrilled with this award and excited about our future as a company. We’re full of great employees who work incredibly hard to keep Arbor front and center as a leader in an uber-competitive industry.
If you’re interested in a little bit more about what makes our company culture tick, I’d urge you to take a peek at this slideshare presentation that captures the essence of our office environment, and our people, pretty well.
