    I have been working at Acme Packet full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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