    I have been working at NetScout Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well known name in industry

    Cons

    Lagging R&D. Very self important and unfriendly customer policies. Legal and finance are a nightmare to have engage with customers. Sales leadership is weak and stuck in ideas 10 or more years old. They are focused on wireless service provider market and but have incomplete and inferior offerings to other competitors that are upper right hand quadrant APM vendors (NetScout dropped off the Gartner chart altogether).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The incestuous long term leadership from early days still lead the company and believe the world is more or less the same as it was 10 years ago. There needs to be change in CEO, Finance, Sales Leadership to really make a change at NetScout which unless they are sold isn't likely to occur.

    Pros

    Very friendly people, very accommodating

    Cons

    The craziest decision making process I have ever seen. Smart CEO that decides and overrules everything. He often makes sense, but this is no way to run a rail road!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a decision making process and respect your hierarchy. Plus, realize that the future is not enterprise (networks there work) but service providers (better network = more profit).

    Pros

    In general NetScout culture in good. If you want a stable and not looking for a lot of adventure NetScout is the company. Decent benefits and good facilities. Definitely an effort is put into taking care of employees.

    Cons

    Politics in some mid-level to upper level management. Not all departments or bosses are great to work with. A lot of management people have been there for a while so in some bad areas they tend to accept status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get rid of politics and fix known issues.

    I worked at NetScout Systems

    Pros

    The company has some really great technology, and a lot of very knowledgable people who are also willing to share their experise.

    Cons

    The Network General acquisition from a product standpoint is pretty much completed. However, from a people perspective, there is still an us and them mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has many things going for it and is poised for steady growth over the next couple years. One piece of advice for improving the workplace - don't tolerate micromanagement.
