    Wow, Juniper has lost the plot completely in this economic downturn!

    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, decent benefits (matching 401k), good facilities (they have a gym at many of their larger locations, basketball courts, stuff like that).

    Cons

    Gosh - where to start? Incompetent management, forced bell curve Jack Welsh style unfair review processes (which aren't intended for small groups of tech workers!), outdated systems which are failing left and right, highly political and unfair promotional practices, a senior management team that is only concerned with their monster bonuses and could care less about the little people that help them earn those bonuses. Juniper says that they are "all about the people of Juniper" that they love so much - they have "The Juniper Way" that has zero to do with their actual practices, but is merely a PowerPoint presentation that they have to regurgitate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so selfish and start practicing what you preach! The best and highest quality people in the industry have already figured out your scheme and have left Juniper en masse. Go ahead and keep feathering your nests and watch it all slip away as Juniper loses more and more relevance in the market place! You have billions in the bank - why not use some of that war chest to empower your employees, plan for the future and strengthen them, instead of turning your management and employees into back-stabbing, fear riddled jello globs.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros

    - excellent compensation

    - good information by several on site tech talks each week by industry experts and project teams

    Cons

    - the software base is huge and common to multiple architectures, adding new features without breaking something is not easy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep focused on providing the best technology
    - Buy other technology companies only if their product has a high margin high growth
