Pros

- great technology, nice campus - some of the best industry products in routing&switching - pay may be between 5-10% to similar positions in other networking companies (Benefits not so great) - you will work with some of the smartest people in the industry - in some positions Juniper will allow to be a remote worker and work from home, traveling when needed - if you like technical work, get a position on a Business Unit, if you like playing politics, get a job in management but don't get a job as Resident Engineer, Sales or Professional services

Cons

- if you are an individual contributor working on a technical area, you are basically a contractor with 0 job security - you have no PTO at Juniper, you ask for time off and is up to your manager if he/she want to give it to you and how much time - career development plan for technical positions is a joke, you have none - total lack of direction for the future of the company - some of the most incompetent management on the industry holds VP and director level positions - total focus on cutting costs (massive lay offs, salary freeze/minimum increases, travel and training restrictions, etc...) - too much politics and double talk in upper management - anything besides routing, switching and few security products is a disaster

Advice to Management

- have a clear business plan and direction for the future besides cutting costs and laying off employees - if you want to move Juniper beyond selling boxes, you have to make a better plan and get the sales team aligned with it - if you want to build solutions, invest in something beyond layer 2-3 - make some sense on what companies and products you buy and how to integrate their products on their portfolio - making a lot of effort in bringing top performers and brilliant minds to let them go a few months later shows total lack of planning, waste of money and treating employees worse than contractors - if you are serious about cutting costs (IOP), how can you justify giving an extra half a million cash bonus to some executives (on top of all the millions they already make in stocks and salary) last year?

    Pros

    Strong technical talent Great promises in terms of ability to disrupt the market/technology Mostly very committed and nice people (in particular those who have been at Juniper for a few years)

    Cons

    Management not very business savvy (overly short-term focused aka bottom-line in current quarter is much more important than the revenue growth in the following quarters) Recently many mediocre and political players - at all levels of the company

    Advice to Management

    Juniper is sub-scale relative to its competition and its portfolio is too broad for a company of its size. It needs to either grow rapidly (inorganically or organically) and/or exit some of its businesses


  2. Good company !
