    Pros

    Beautiful gym with fitness classes throughout the day. Employees encouraged to join company organizations like green initiatives, volunteer/community work, fitness... 40/hrs per year of volunteer time off.

    Cons

    Lacks innovation and real vision. Work focused mainly on reactional assignments vs taking on ambitious initiatives to drive industry movement. Culture shift from energized talent to"keep your head down".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push the envelope and create opportunities to do work that inspires.

    Pros

    Brocade has lots of potential and traditionally has been a people focused company. In some of the businesses there is still a high value placed on being nimble and not putting in too many processes or structures that will slow things down.

    Cons

    Evolving changes will be good for the company in the long-run, but painful in the short-run. Some businesses act like this is a huge company and it takes forever to get things done. We could move faster if everyone played by the same rules instead of trying to get around the rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate. Don't go overboard in your cost cutting and forget to take care of the employees that will still move the company forward.
