Former Employee - Sales Operations Manager in San Jose, CA

I worked at Brocade Communications full-time (less than an 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
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Brocade Communications full-time (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.

    The management was good. work atmosphre was family friendly. engineers were easy to talk with. You can ask anything in whenever you like. Can work from home too
