    Pros

    * The company is doing very well, and growing.
    * The company makes quality products.
    * Employees are very competent overall.
    * Equity compensation is quite generous.
    * Management is being rather proactive in attempting to resolve those issues which may beset the company.

    Cons

    * Some issues have existed with scheduling processes (gradually being addressed).
    * Most departments want a few more employees, but hiring is pretty tight.
    * Some departments worry about getting worn out from the pace of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is already working to address various shortcomings, especially problems related to communication and siloization between different departments and teams. They do not need any further advice here.

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Aruba Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You meet some great people working here. Being here, you definitely have a lot of opportunities to work on high visibility projects for your career. As an entry level analyst, you have the opportunity to work with VPs and high level directors that you wouldn't get at a bigger company.

    Cons

    - High turnover rate, employees constantly coming in and out of the company
    - No 401k matching
    - Old systems
    - Feels like losing small company mentality, all the fun events seem to be disappearing since everyone is so busy
    - Work/Life balance, manager level expected to be in the office 10-11 hours a day, and be on call
    - Unlimited PTO, sounds great on paper, but when you do go on vacation or take a day off, you are expected to bring your laptop

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Cross train employees, this would be great if a team member decides to take a day off

    - Invest in new systems, seems like the solution for problems at this company is to hire a headcount rather than invest in efficient systems

    Internship is one of the best experience one can have in this company! HRs are always approachable and available and they will organize many intern activities to create a fun filled experience.

    Pros

    Perfect for interns to get a lot of hands on experience
    Two gyms, nice work-life balance.

    Cons

    Didn't get the best computer, interns got the hand me down ones that would have memory or other issues. The biggest little company atmosphere, forced team building exercises are a little much for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better employee team culture
