I worked at NetScout Systems as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

-Large company with lots of room for improvement
-Flexible and dynamic work environment
-Friendly employees and approachable management

Cons

-Strong barriers between departments and between office locations. Painfully political environment.
-Long-standing company, but progress can be slow for no reason, improvements to meet with modern industry standards are overlooked for outdated processes.
-Onboarding as an employee can be vague and directionless, with no room to ask questions.
-Cooperation between different organizations is spotty at best and covertly self-serving at worst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Look around you for guidance as to where the industry is going. Don't get left behind!
-Don't get locked into SOP. Departmental procedures should trickle down from executive direction, not managerial power-grabbing.
-Things work better, faster, and more effectively when everyone affected by a decision have a say. The initial planning sessions smooth the way for immediate progress.
-Don't let go of your talent. Many valuable employees have been fired or drawn away by other companies because of a lack of direction, ambition, or feedback from the management layer down.
