Pros

Great Technology, very loyal customers, unique OEM relationships

Cons

Weak management, no real dynamics in sales, too many "hangers-on" in sales, too little accountability, HQ mentality at opposite to that in the field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Accept less mediocrity, embrace the strengths that the company and its products have and go after the competitors. Stop being so callow!!

    Pros

    Company is innovative and they truly believe in pay for performance. If you do well, you do well.

    Cons

    You are somewhat on an island. When things don't go well with products or problems, you are somewhat on an island to get things smoothed over. Also, Brocade still runs as 2 separate companies and they have not done a good job combining the old Foundry company with Brocade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job in making all employees BROCADE employees instead of IP guys or SAN guys. Also, stop broadcasting the San Jose events out to the whole company. Brocade is a global company so it's poor form to hear a broadcast about a San Jose team building event, etc.

    politics in promotions with upper management getting raises and promotions more often.
    Lack of direction at times

    pass on the raise and promotion to employees who actually do the work. More connection with employees
