Pros

Gym, Swimming pool, Sauna, Neat and Clean. A good place if you are completing you're internship or if you are happy to make some money learning nothing.

Cons

No Career growth, Everyone ends up being a bug fixer. Only extremely senior engineers get to do any development. Would not recommend moving to this place.

    Talented R&D centers. Working there or in regional engineer level positions can be rewarding.

    I worked at Allied Telesis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    R&D centers have many talented people. Post sales support organization also skilled and hard working. Engineer level staff can be treated well depending on local management.

    Cons

    Sales and marketing operations in largest markets is poorly executed. Fragmented organizational structure. High turnover of middle management. Low competency level of management in some countries. Growth opportunities missed by inattention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faster market analysis, put R&D to better use making more desirable products faster. Create cohesive marketing strategy and build brand. Present unified leadership team to employees. Find leaders who are capable of leading technical people.

    I worked at Allied Telesis full-time

    Pros

    Donuts, bagels, and fruit on Friday mornings. Dozens of specialty tea and coffee machines in a two-story building. Plenty of free, convenient parking. Decent medical and vision plans. Plentiful OTC drug dispensers throughout the building.

    Cons

    No annual or quarterly performance reviews. Rare to get a title upgrade or salary increase. Company "vision" changes on a quarterly basis. Mass reorganizations are the norm vs. the exception. All the chaos and stress of a start-up--without the fun, camaraderie, excitement, or sense of achievement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be like talking to a brick wall.
