    I worked at Brocade Communications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was good to work with Engineering team, legal, finance. The brocade campus n buildings are nice n well maintained.

    Cons

    Lack of good managers, culture is very discriminatory, management encourages hostile environment, asked to treat the manager as spouse and agree to his wrong moves. Misrepresented the job profile.Lack of ethics! Too many unmarried/divorced cronies out there who just complaints about their lives and jobs n discusses other employees personal matters.overall not a good place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instill Equal good organizational values n ethical culture. Reward the talents.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Brocade Communications full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Difficult 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 ManagementAdvice

    Idea #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.
