    I worked at Brocade Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked there for two different roll. Overall friendly environment, competitive salary and work environment. Good training (training provider team is nice) if you are entry level engineer. Great place to learn.

    Cons

    Everyone wants to become manager.
    Not organized as I expected. No specific guide lines for new comers to start work on. Assigning all type of work to new comers so hard to catch up if you are not fast learner or just came out from school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is micro management that hurts some of the employees

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
