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

Pros

Visonary leadership, balanced work/life schedule, open communication

Cons

People are promoted to senior management positions and then move to individual contributors without losing their title or pay level. Creates a top-heavy organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maintain focus on innovation. You've lost your edge on software quality.

    Pros

    Brilliant technologists with leading edge ideas

    Cons

    Executive leadership is learning how to lead a mid-sized company for the first time, creating company wide turmoil while trying to expand during a rapidly evolving market. Overlapping roles/responsibilities promoted poor mid level management behavior and a lack of trust and partnership across BU's, highlighted by poor execution. Executive leadership lacked an understanding about the key characteristics of a strong leader versus narcissistic manager, creating short term sales, but long term declines across the board..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and share holders, dramatic change is needed.....

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with a lot of very smart people on very high visibility projects. If you thrive under pressure and love to work hard, this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    As in any large company, there are plenty of politics and bureaucracy. But it is not as bad as it could be. Pressure to excel and meet tight deadlines is always there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive reinforcement works better than negative feedback. Tendency to hunt for a scapegoat when things go wrong.
