Working for Brocade

Senior Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsGreat compensation. Growing Company. Fantastic Products. Great opportunity for first year professionals with little to no experience.

ConsDifficult to drive to results due to political nature of Senior Management. Company focused on new young talent as opposed to leveraging skill/experience of long term team players. Limited opportunity to move up in the organization. Company prefers to hire from outside rather than promoting from within.

Advice to Senior ManagementIdea #1: Consider evolving your talent retention program to increase your ability to realize your investment in time and cost of seasoned and productive employees. Example: Easily allow seasoned employees to expand into new areas of the business, or define new roles due to changes in technology.

    I have been working at Brocade Communications

    Pros: Decent salary and benefits if you don't factor in the forced overtime. Nice new campus but… Cons: Inept, nepotistic managers. They hire their relatives, friends, people they went to school with and give them the best jobs, lion share of promotions/salary increases… Advice to Senior Management: Stop thinking about yourselves and get to work on fixing the product road map, recognizing key contributors (i.e.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
