Pros

They pay well, and promote the company as being a good place to work. Overall employees and contractors are treated with respect. I think some teams may have a good culture- its ALL about the manager.

Cons

Brocade management is out of date. They have a be-in-the office from 9-5 mentality, ineffective technology for employees, endless work cycles and nothing seems to change, silo-ed middle management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a little more synergy with your middle management. And perhaps look to HR to get a real picture of people's exit interviews. I think that staff wants to continue improving, but there is a gap in terms of corp goals and empowerment/execution.

    Brocade has become a terrible place to work. There is no work/life balance and the pay is low.

    Pros

    Hopefully the company will be bought soon to force a change in management and HR.

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Management sucks
    Unfair pay practices
    Madhouse enviroment
    Below standard quality of products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start taking care of the employees instead of just yourself. Try giving stock options/ bonuses to the workers who are producing quality work. Do not expect employees to work or be on call 24/7.
