I have been working at Brocade Communications

Pros

new campus,cafeteria and gym facilities

Cons

1. No appreciation of good work for fresh graduates.
2. expected to work long hours and sometime on weekends
3. no work-life balance
4. salary is below market value and incompetitive and no increments since 2 years
5. too many shutdowns ( two times in a year ) and mandatory unpaid time offs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Acknowledge and give respect to the hard work of your employees and atleast give them bonus as promised rather forcing mandatory shutdowns on them and expecting long hours to work.

    Pros

    Cares about employees, great facilities (cafeteria, fitness center, restaurants close by), good technical learning, great for new university hires, and for people who want to dive deep

    Cons

    Some politics for an organization of this size, career advancement an issue, job rotation is an issue. Communication and ownership unclear in some parts of the organization
