I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great opportunities to take courses, attend informational lunches, etc.
Flexible hours, work from home, depending on supervisor.
Good medical insurance, reasonable base salary.
Effort tends to be rewarded more often than not.

Cons

If you want to do great things within Juniper, you pretty much have to be in California.
Lab support for unusual equipment can be non-existent (okay) or inflexible (worse).
Lack of investment/direction for certain products.
Offshoring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice work surroundings, some really great people

    Cons

    If you don't come from Cisco ( the Costco of networking) you and your opinions don't count. VP's come in and bring former employees from Cisco with huge promotions while existing employees stand still, lot's of favortism.

    Still a "HW Box" silicon company with routing bigots. Little sense of applications, web or end-user.

    Geo- political mess, multiple Business Units have great difficulty working collectively together and there is dfinately a class structure inside the company, again Ex-Cisco VP's rule.

    Too many Cisco VP's...hire more engineers so the work can get done right and don't hire them all in India because they are cheaper....it takes 3 times as long to get the same amount of work accomplished and the overhead for both US and India is extremely high.

    EVP's have become ATT whipping boys.

    Alot of talk about quality improvement but little done in the front end of the development process to encourge better development practices. Test guys have their act together but keep getting overruled by VP's. PLM's.........? where are they?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the company, start hiring from companies that know how to develope, market and sell applications. Form a partnership and/or acquire new technologies to differentiate from Cisco. Strive to be momre than the number 2 "plumber" in the industry.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong Technical Exposure
    Strong Customer Exposure
    Great place for self motivated people

    Cons

    Lacking focus on core technologies
    Too much Management FAT
    Loosing good engineers to start-ups and competitors due to bad management
    Does not treat BUs based on performance .. no distinction between performers and non-performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recently there has been lots of management changes .. we are tired of seeing so much changes so frequently ... this is causing people to loose confidence in the company.
