I have been working at Acme Packet full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    High energy, lots of young engineers

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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....

    Focused leadership team and strong long term position and prospects.

    Cons

    Managing rapid growth - missing two quarters in a row is a symptom of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommit to investing in new employees so they can contribute deeply and broadly
