Nice company and culture

Computer Programmer (Current Employee)
Andover, MA

I have been working at Enterasys full-time for more than a year

ProsThe management team I deal with are all nice people. Schedules are flexible. Nice place to work. Much better environment now as compared to the old Cabletron days. I should know, since I am a former Cabletron employee who was worked to the bone in the 1990's. Now I have returned and the environment is much more positive and a friendlier place to work.

ConsSiemens Enterprise Networking is like a big sister of Enterasys, both under the umbrella of the Gores Group. They are not doing as well as Enterasys. As a result, even though Enterasys is doing well with profits and they are not, we recently suffered a layoff of about 2% of our workforce (in the US). There are advantages to being partners with SEN, but not when it costs us jobs. Other than that, the outlook for the company looks good and the HQ will be moving to a new building in Salem, NH in early 2013.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Some strong pros, some strong cons

Pros: There are some great, smart and hardworking people on the management staff. It was fun to be part of the turnaround.… Cons: There is limited ability and desire to mentor.
