Pros

Nice place to work , not much work pressure , lot to learn for self driven people.

Cons

laid back work culture , due to a lot of very experienced ppl around , freshers will not get much responsibilities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give more responsoilties to ppl whom you think are doing well , salary hikes alone not enough.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, good health care package

    Cons

    HR is pathetic and inept
    Salaries are not that good
    Promotion is basically a popularity context
    Fairness to employees isn't really valued
    Always focused on the next shiny object and not on running the core business
    Too sales focused and they no longer really care about customers or what they want and need

    Pros

    The are a very ethical and respectable company, with a very flexible work policy. They continually solicit feedback from employees on internal policies and meeting effectiveness. They offer many different challenging job roles within the networking field, and large campuses to keep internal moves from affecting your commute.

    Cons

    The hours are long, they have a forced ranking system, and there is lots of internal competition over engineering projects and resources. Execution is all-important and quality suffers. They are overly-frugal... employee families are never invited to company events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement more focus on employee retention and career development. Reassign managers whose employees regularly lack engagement and happiness. Try to improve connectedness among teams.
