    Pros

    Good group of very smart people. The company does care for its employees, and you can see that in the long tenure of most employees. Senior management is very deliberate in guiding the direction of the company, from development through sales. NetScout knows what it wants to be.

    Cons

    The environment is not necessarily for the entrepreneurial at heart. Although input is accepted and encouraged, the company's entire direction comes strictly from the CEO. The CEO is very smart, and has done well with the company over its history, so things are bad, just don't expect to help drive vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on building true management qualities in those you put in positions to lead others. If you don't build a firm foundation of people who can motivate, develop and empower those, and build leadership skills in others, you'll miss out on having a truly great company.

    Software Engineering Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NetScout Systems

    Pros

    Was paired with mentor, great flexibility in role, learned a lot from this experience, worked on a project, overall great experience.

    Cons

    Locked into working individually. Wasn't able to contribute to a project on a team, however, individual work was interesting enough to be occupied with role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job in dealing with interns; however, don't be afraid to challenge their abilities.

    I worked at NetScout Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly teams, flexible schedules, telecommuting option for some positions. The employee benefits are exceptional and longer vacations are great and easy to obtain permission for.

    Cons

    Can get locked into a niche position. With offices all over the world communication within a team can become troublesome with different team members starting conference calls at 1:00 AM or later.

    Pros

    The company is growing and buying other companies. The products are mature and interesting. Great benefits and compensation. Best CEO ever!!!

    Cons

    Every company has issues and this one is no different. None of these issues, however, would make me want to go and look for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up... and bring in some more new blood!

    Pros

    Great culture, balanced work and personal life, financially stable, great products, very good compensation and benefits. The purchase of Network General was a great addition to the company and to the product line. The infusion of personel and products gave us the boost we needed and re-energize the company and the employees.

    Cons

    None so far that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask the field for the input more often
