    Excellent Potential, Sufficient Excecution

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NetScout Systems

    Pros

    High-Paced environment with a large amount of room to improve and drive the industry through innovation and intelligence.

    Cons

    The potential is rarely explored, much less executed on. On one hand, keeping the business running is and should be top priority. On the other hand, refusing to adapt and change with the industry standard will move first-place standing farther and farther away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your backlog prevent your individual contributors from doing their jobs.

    Former Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at NetScout Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Large company with lots of room for improvement
    -Flexible and dynamic work environment
    -Friendly employees and approachable management

    Cons

    -Strong barriers between departments and between office locations. Painfully political environment.
    -Long-standing company, but progress can be slow for no reason, improvements to meet with modern industry standards are overlooked for outdated processes.
    -Onboarding as an employee can be vague and directionless, with no room to ask questions.
    -Cooperation between different organizations is spotty at best and covertly self-serving at worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Look around you for guidance as to where the industry is going. Don't get left behind!
    -Don't get locked into SOP. Departmental procedures should trickle down from executive direction, not managerial power-grabbing.
    -Things work better, faster, and more effectively when everyone affected by a decision have a say. The initial planning sessions smooth the way for immediate progress.
    -Don't let go of your talent. Many valuable employees have been fired or drawn away by other companies because of a lack of direction, ambition, or feedback from the management layer down.

    Former Employee - Technical Manager
    Former Employee - Technical Manager

    I worked at NetScout Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good infrastructure, encourages good attitude( only from employees). There were good old days, but not any more

    Cons

    old fashioned company with services touch, lots of micromanagement. lacks evangelism.
    Managers believe that they are product development company, but no planing, more like services company, more managers doing nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to think out of the box, see where industry is going and plan. But currently management not encouraging out of the box thinking unlike google/facebook , where product managers are encouraged to come up with idea that beats competition, where here all says our chairman wants this

    Pros

    Good team members and had felxible working hours but it is not the same anymore.

    Cons

    Low salary package, far too many managers than required making it extremely difficult to rise up in the ladder. Competition between different engineering centers does more harm to the company ..no clear division of work..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of managers. Have more competitive salary especially for the old employees.
