I have been working at Brocade Communications full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Have many projects going on for new grads to accumulate their knowledge

Cons

limited promotion space for entry level engineer because they are more likely to borrow people from acquired company and most are senior level or even higher

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO should have a clean vision on the company's future strategy instead of just encouraging people to think a change

    Pros

    Fast paced cutting edge technology company. A dynamic medium sided company able to adapt quickly. Great products and great engineers designing them.

    Cons

    Tend to reorganize regularly. Little upward mobility unless you were interested only in people management. Education on the company's own products is nonexistent. Often have to just wing it when testing a device.
    There's also a brain drain occurring which in my opinion is very dangerous for a technology company.

    Some corporate processes are still relatively inefficient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well looking at ways to optimize costs and operations, take into account the perspective of the field employees in addition to the main corporate site employees.
