I worked at Extreme Networks full-time (more than an year)

Pros

A great work environment and some awesome technology.

Cons

Periodically experiences downsizing and RIFs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was RIFd after a financial engineering move left the company in a cashflow crunch. I'd advise being more cautious about those types of moves -- although I was not in any position to pass judgment on whether the financial move was necessary to preserve the company's viability or independence.
