    Howdy everyone...

    After five years with my current tech company (Federal account executive), I'm looking at other opportunities if an internal AI/ML role doesn't pan out.

    Anyone have any thoughts or experience with these companies that are on my radar?

    Splunk
    Cohesity
    Zscaler
    Riverbed
    Arista
    Gitlab
    F5 Networks

    gracias y'all

    BNA has employees from South and Central America and Mexico and the West Coast that he manages out of Denver for a San Francisco based computer or software company, I think.

      I have a buddy that sold for Riverbed. He actually retired from there after years with VMware. He's been out of the game for a while, but he had very positive things to say about working for them, FWIW.

      This is a crappy time to be job searching. EOY with the holidays are always difficult and the Wuhan silliness has made things immeasurably worse. And difficult to predict into next year, too.

      I, too, sell in the tech space and have been looking for a while. I don't have the federal experience you have, so the going for me here in the Middle Atlantic region has been very slow.

      I can't say for sure that all he said about BNA was true but... he is kind of a big deal...

        it means I'm going to have to get a new benefit plan, laptop and business cards (if those are still a thing)
