I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The benefits and compensation were reasonable, and there seemed to be many intelligent and hard working people there.

Cons

Constant churn and reogranization. The name of my business units changed 4 times in three years, with corresponding changes in leadership.

Enterprise is not taken seriously, and acquisitions are not done in a strategic manner.

Politics are a problem at the higher levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication lines from the top are broken. When restructuring and trimming projects, you need to have a plan BEFORE you cancel. Dropping the cancelation on the team without a followup plan generates a huge moral problem.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big company, lots to learn. Processes in place.

    Cons

    Culture is going downhill & is getting extremely political. Hired too many VP or higher management levels with no reason. Bring in lots of old school managers/directors that don't suit this young company. No cross training, no job rotations, no promotion within the department but loves to hire external candidates. Dead end career move, unless you know how to sweet talk upper management but with no deliverables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. They should know what they are doing instead of wasting the time to restructure the company numerous times within a year. Just make up your mind before make any more structural changes.
