Good company, pay for performance

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Brocade Communications full-time for more than 3 years

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

ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementDo 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
