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

Pros

Decent salary, not much micro management, flexible work hours

Cons

Promotions and perks only for ass kissers not performers and they say it is performance oriented culture

Managers have private conversations with some people in the team and only they get rewarded others no matter how hard they work are not allowed to come up

No amount of hard work and proof is enough for you to justify your hike and promotion i did some very spectacular tasks still got "Meets Expectations"

Overtly greedy management that wants to extract as much as possible from workers but not reward them appropriately

Products are shelved all of a sudden without proper reasoning

No way for engineers to give feedback on management it is a pure one way approach

No one on one meetings or skip level meetings or any other way of feedback, Management believes they are the very best and do not need feedback

Once you raise your voice against anything instead of listening you are asked to give up or pay up

Not a single day passes off without work and in-spite of so much productivity appraisals are horrible

Most of the projects you will be over worked

HR is a non-existent entity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have proper feedback mechanism and reward true performers
