Work Life Balance

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Broomfield, CO

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

ProsThere 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementStart 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
