I worked at Brocade Communications full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

There are workout facilities at each site and they offer yoga, kick boxing and additional classes, which helps get a person away from their desk and find time to relieve stress.

Cons

The work life balance is said to be a big priority but there have been reduction in force that workloads have increased and taking time off is not a reality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start allowing people to sell back their PTO since they are under too much pressure to get their tasks completed they can't afford to take time off and they end up capping out on PTO.

    I have been working at Brocade Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing People. Amazing Customers. Amazing Partners. Amazing Products. A chance to really make a difference.

    Cons

    The lack of coordination between product groups, engineering groups and both product and engineering with each other is just scary. Sometimes it feels like there are 3 competing companies in one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two execs gone, a few more to go and we could really turn this into something that changes everything.
