Company culture is what makes it exciting for me to work at Palo Alto Networks. We have all the perks, sure, but the values that define our daily grind set us apart: integrity, inclusion, disruption, collaboration and execution. Let me tell you what these values mean to me.

I take immense pride in doing the right thing, every single time with honesty and transparency. Whether it's with our customers or colleagues, it’s all about integrity.

I love that we celebrate diversity and inclusion here. From different backgrounds to unique perspectives, everyone feels valued and empowered to contribute. It's refreshing to see diversity in my team. When people bring their different life experiences and perspectives to work, that means growth and progress for all of us.

Disruption? Bring it on! I am not afraid to challenge the norm and brainstorm innovative solutions. In fact, I encourage it! It is this constant push for improvement that keeps us ahead of the game. My team’s efforts combined with our focus on execution ensure we achieve our goals and milestones. It's incredibly motivating to be surrounded by such dedicated folks, where everyone takes ownership and drives results.

The best part is the chance to share my learnings and learn from others too! Here at Palo Alto Networks, I can leverage my 24 years of experience to help others grow, while also picking up new things from this fantastic group. It's a two-way street, and it is so fulfilling to me. In the words of my leadership, “TWW - Together We Win” with open communication, collaboration, supporting each other, and celebrating wins together.

To top it all off, I am a huge fan of the AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) Leaders sessions. Our senior leaders regularly host these open forums where I can ask questions, big or small. It's a chance to connect with leadership on a personal level, gain insights, and feel like being a part of something bigger.

We are also serious about food! Scrumptious team lunches are a regular event, and my chance to bond with colleagues and unwind outside of projects. It might seem like a small thing, but trust me, it makes a huge difference. Appreciating a teammate's effort, big or small, is like recognizing the drops of rain that eventually form a lake, that’s my success mantra. And sometimes, a heartfelt thank you note or a well-deserved rock star status says it all.

This is just a peek into what I think makes Palo Alto Networks such a fantastic place to work. Huge shout out to our culture that breeds creativity and growth!

Go, Palo Alto Networks!
