I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Juniper has a strong technical organization and culture that creates great technology and products, but not always market driven or on-time. The Juniper culture values smart technical people, however people management and skills are under-valued. Juniper's high quality products have resulted in loyal customers.

Cons

Juniper does not appreciate people skills and promotes technical strength versus business and management skill sets resulting in overall weak management and employee frustration. Juniper rarely is on the cutting edge of new products as they are internally technically and product driven, not market driven. Also, very California based company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Balance the technical culture and strengths with strong business managers who value people skills and become more market driven.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Intelligent people
    Great product
    Great culture
    Interface with Marketing Communications team (true professionals)
    I enjoyed the responsibilities

    Cons

    I had a terrible and abusive manager. HR knew all about her. I was there for two years when I really needed a job. It would have been a terrific environment if she had she not been so schizophrenic...I enjoyed working with engineering and marketing teams. Really sharp people and groups. At the same time that she was "managing me", my manager was working out issues with HR and other employees that she had verbally abused. I was there during the change in CEO. Marketing leadership was crazy, rolling out new branding and logo several times before they stayed with something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move insane, abusive managers out of your company quickly...
