    Its a very great place to work with a very laid-back atmosphere. Colleagues are very helpful and one of the most knowledgeable people in the VOIP industry.

    Carry on the good work.

    Pros

    Opportunity is what you make of it, and you can go far by making the most of it. This is a place that rewards hard work and intelligence. Dynamic CEO.

    Cons

    Can be a little like high school sometimes; there's an in-crowd.

    I have been working at Acme Packet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has great culture and the highest quality engineers. The people there are very committed to producing great products. There are a lot of very smart and dedicated people there.

    Cons

    Occasionally they have developed some features in the products just to make a deal or sale, but this should diminish now that they are part of Oracle, which is more product focused rather than sales drivven.

    Advice to Management

    The company should be more strategic focusing more on the product and less tactical (sales driven)

    Pros

    High energy, lots of young engineers

    Cons

    Company struggling to transition from a scrappy start-up to medium-sized company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. If management asks for feedback on new chairs for everyone, or the layout of the new cube structure, it behooves the managers to listen to this feedback or at the very least, acknowledge it and respond back as to why you may or may not go in that direction....

    Pros

    Company willing to take on any new avenue as long as revenue is tied to it. Company has been able to gain market leadership with the approach they have taken so far for SBC market.

    Cons

    Company is not entirely open to new approaches, new designs and so on. Company doesnt encourage personal learning, doesnt enable personal growth. They have a set way of doing things and are not willing to explore major avenues.

    Advice to Management

    Review the way things are done and change things around a bit. Bring in fresh perspective for things we are actively pursuing.
