Pros

Once a great company. If you are looking for a storage job, brocade gives you a great brand. Ex-employees are successful in what they did later in career and you will be looked at the same angle.

Cons

Senior engineering management is clueless and mostly political. Severe attrition in engineering management is the proof. No one complains while leaving, that just means they are numb after last few months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire new executive engineering team that is people/community oriented. Enough money has been already saved by senseless layoffs and goalless cost cutting. Now let us save the people who are left. Let go the political management and keep the honest ones who really want to keep business as a priority.
