    Pros

    The benefits and salaries are better than average. Good products and good technology.

    Cons

    It's a very political environment and the upper management has no clue what the directors and the lower management are doing. A lot of nepotism and the engineers who are not in the inner circle always get burned and shafted. Folks in general don't share much information for the job security. Team work is absent from the company.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management should get feedback from the average folks regarding the politics and the output of the middle management without any fears or retributions.

    High paying job if you can handle the politics

    Pros

    Pays better than others in the valley

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics...
    If you and your boss are from the same Indian village, then you will advance quickly. Otherwise, don't bother, since you are not a part of their clan. Case and point, go ask how Palo Alto Networks got started.

    Pros

    Great products and great values in the company. Dedicated people to take the company to a new level and there is lot of potential. Above average salaries and great work life balance

    Cons

    Very highly driven by upper management with their own agenda. Everyone makes their own decision without keeping the big picture in mind

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what middle management is saying

    Pros

    Work from anywhere, strong but languishing brand in the channel, strong in fast routers, new CEO from within should be good for the company, traditionally paid well, but may be changing post Elliott Associates investment

    Cons

    In too many markets and peanut buttering investment, dismantled security salesforce, software product marketing is non-existent, lots of executive churn over the past several years, ousted CEO shows board lack of judgement, no cohesive long-term strategy from top level vision down to where the businesses are run, highly engineering led --marketing is highly corporate brand oriented, basic blocking and tackling product marketing

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger discipline of ownership at the mid-levels and resource the businesses for success, if not, sell them off or shutter them down, get a real vision that means something vs co-creative planet, tie vision to strategy to execution steps clearly

    Growing company, lots of users, high impact work, love my coworkers. It's a product that is changing the world.

    Cons

    Not an easy job, changes impact millions of users which can sometimes be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend this company to a friend - I'm optimistic about the outlook.
