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

Pros

- Great technology - Employees are passionate about working here - Culture is of a small sized company trying to become a large corporate - Has good industry recognition

Cons

- Competing in resource allocation between improving quality of products v/s introducing new feature causing loss of market share - Lack of overall product portfolio management resulting in overlapping product lines and confusing go-to-marketing strategy

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good OTE Packages (Even if sales never hits on target it looks good on paper). Strong SE organization. Good health insurance.

    Cons

    Products quality is failing everywhere - JUNOS SRX. Give good OTE packages but then they give high quotas so no one can hit their number and never paid at OTE. Layoffs every quarter but only enough to announce to press about once a year. Upper mgt all comes from NT or ALU and they bring in their buddies to VP positions. They run it exactly like they ran Nortel and ALU. They build new equipment without a customer base then are surprised when it doesn't sell. Turnover is so high and moral is low. In the eight years I have been here I have had seven bosses. No promotions in sales but plenty of demotions. Enterprise changes their go to market strategy about every three months. Finally they took away all vacation next year!! You can ask your boss if you can take a vacation day but if he says no, you are out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in NT and ALU executives unless you are trying to end up like both of those companies (bankrupt or stock under $1). If that is the plan then keep up the good work you are doing great.

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

    Pros

    Exceptional benefits, nice HQ campus. Pay is generally good but poor company performance has led to under funded bonus pool.

    Cons

    Poor planning and execution results in fairly regular lay-offs, lack of leadership development results in excessive external leadership hiring, has become very political, people valued more for their "connections" than their achievements. A lot of TALK about values but in the end it is all about who "likes" you.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time telling the world how great Juniper is and more time being great! Get focused on the CUSTOMER. I don't believe the word "customer" is included in the company values or the strategy statement . Focus on execution
