I worked at Brocade Communications


Pros: The team work and ability to grow your skill set so that you can grow your career… Cons: Like most enterprise companies, you will find politics in the ranks and will need to deal… Advice to Senior Management: Realize that senior engineers while not always working as fast as younger engineers especially in India, do tend to have the experiance that allows them… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
