Pros

When you are noticed, there is a lot of upward mobility. The upper echelons are covered with homegrown talent. The company appears to be on the right track with the new CEO, though he is fighting some battles to make his direction known. Employees really seem to care about each other. Work life can be rewarding with the right manager. Company is well positioned to take on the market.

Cons

People are territorial in places. There are leaders who seem completely separated from business reality at times. Strong dichotomy between founding principles and desire for growth - need a clearly articulated corporate mission beyond the "Connect everything, empower everyone".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make a definitive statement about what is important to the company to grow to 10B. Cut some dead weight, particularly in some leadership roles.

    I worked at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Juniper is people centered and compensates fairly well. The "Juniper Way" is not only a slogan, but is mostly lived by. The bonus structure is rewarding when things go well (including revenue, team/group and personal accomplishments).

    Cons

    Depending on the group you are in, there is a varied amount of respect given to you based on what that groups reputation is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be crisper in their decisions and to remove ambiguity as fast as possible. There are sometimes when a particular team does not understand how they fit into the bigger picture.
