    A rollercoaster ride

    Executive Administrator (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsGreat people, fun environment, interesting and promising technology

    ConsGot side tracked from their main mission, and then didn't keep up with the US carriers' move to LTE.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHow could a company with $170 million in cash, no debt, and 850+ employees around the world when I started in late 2007, go belly-up and shut down virtually all US operations and lay-off 350-400 employees by early 2011 - it boggles the mind.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ultimate Employment option for people of Israeli Origin or people believing in Apple Polishing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are able to be a yes master kind of a guy and willing to dance to the tunes of people above you, it is a perfect place. You will get out of turn hikes and can retire in peace and probably get reemployed as a consultant after your super annuation

    ConsThe Managment is clue less about what they are doing. Supposed to be a technology company with virtually non existant R&D. The R&D and Product Development head used to be a Lawyer but education. Absolutely no focus on business development and clue less about where the industry is heading. Extremely over staffed with useless people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up before you sink with the ship

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the bad culture, build proper products

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My shortest employee ever

    Software Team Leader (Former Employee)
    Tel Aviv (Israel)

    ProsVey nice facilities. A lot of space and very convenient building and office services. Salary is relatively high.

    ConsUnstable, I have worked there for 5 months, In that time my direct manager was replaced 4 times and my team members were change 3 times. The job title also changed 3 times and all in only 5 months. After that and at the 4th manager change and team change I decided to leave (and the team just earned another manager change....)

    Think twice before you join Alvarion if you are from different race

    Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsTechnology is great. Learning Wireless Technology such as WiMAX is cool. Over all, employee is nice to each other. The company is heading to the right path. This company will survive for a long time since they manage the company's spending and control product's cost very well.

    ConsThey are kind of cheap as employee benifit goes. But not the worst. This company is traded on Nasdaq but it runs like a foreign company. Upper managers will suddenly talk in the meeting to each other using their native language. This makes other us employee feel uncomfortable sometime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to treat employee from different race.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get help from the government in order to tackle Chinese competitors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
