    Former Employee - Deals Desk Intern in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Brocade Communications

    Pros

    Even as an intern, there was great compensation. It was very obvious that the HR cared a great deal about the intern's experiences. There were many company hosted events that promoted networking and relationship development. It was a great place to begin a career in the corporate world.

    Cons

    At the time, the company was slightly disorganized due to the recent acquisition. Chain of commands was a little obscure, and it was often a little difficult to find the right person to talk to about a specific product or process simply because the hierarchy was very obscure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company would greatly benefit if there was a more organized system of command, especially with a company, such as Brocade, that intends to continue growing in future times.
