Gigamon Is Certified as a Great Place to Work

What has always been important to me when joining an organization is the culture and whether it is a place that I would want to be part of. I joined Gigamon over five years ago, and the Gigamon culture and people I met were the deciding factor for my joining. And I’m not alone — candidates who interview with us and employees have consistently provided positive feedback about the special culture with great people.

Our Gigamon Beliefs have created the foundation for our culture, and it’s the people that keep it constant. With that, I’m thrilled to announce that Gigamon has been named a Great Place to Work-Certified company by Great Place to Work US!

This is our first time participating in this prestigious list, where 89 percent of our employees said Gigamon is a great place to work — this is an incredible 31 points higher than the average U.S. company. I am pleased that our employees had such an overwhelmingly positive response, especially during these challenging times, and Gigamon has now been acknowledged by Great Place to Work. Paul Hooper, our CEO comments, “Being acknowledged as a Great Place to Work is validation that our team, company, and culture collectively create an environment that people enjoy. We continue to ensure that Gigamon provides and nurtures an inclusive, empowering, and rewarding place of work.”

We asked a few of our employees about what it means to them to work at Gigamon and they were eager to share. To all our employees, thank you for making this company a special place to be and one that will continue to be successful.

“Gigamon management continually demonstrates their commitment in supporting employee wellness, work-life balance, diversity, and inclusion through the Employees First, OneGigamon, and family focused philosophies. Over the course of the pandemic and recent world events, I’ve been especially impressed with how Gigamon has made a creative effort in going ‘above-and-beyond’ to ensure employees are provided with additional resources, flexibility, extra incentives, and even the unexpected care packages to simply bring a bit of joy to our household. In recent conversations with friends and family, I find many other companies have not matched Gigamon with respect to ensuring their employees feel seen, heard, and supported. I appreciate our Gigamon family!”

“I agree that Gigamon is a great place to work. I have worked for some fabulous and some fun companies, supporting some pretty cool customers, but Gigamon is really the best. Gigamon is a group of individual contributors who come together as a team to support each other, and most importantly, to support the customer. We work pretty hard, but have a lot of fun doing it. People are genuinely happy for the success of others and are willing to lend a hand to help out. It is all in the leadership, a leadership that sets mighty goals and then empowers us to reach them together…and then the fun hits a new level when we celebrate that success together.”
— Donna O’Hear, Regional Sales Director

“I love how accessible everyone at Gigamon is, especially the executive team. The OneGigamon culture is real. New hires always tell me they’re at first skeptical of it, but after a few months they see and experience it. I also love that we, as individuals, can sometimes define how wide or narrow our swim lane is. If we’re passionate about something and it’s relevant to our work, we’re encouraged to pursue our passion. My ex-coworkers that I still keep in touch with (the fact coworkers become friends is very rare), reminisce about their great time at Gigamon and how their shirts are still in great shape. Gigamon takes care of its employees — they’ve never been cheap. Happy employees = happy products = happy customers.”
— Baseer Balazadeh, Sr., Technical Marketing Engineer

“Making the move to Gigamon was the best decision I ever made, not only for my career but for my family and community.”
— Dawn Hale-Carrillo, Business Development Manager
