    Pros

    Very bright people who are laid-back and down to earth. An environment that is not overly political, and challenging work to go to every day.

    Cons

    Battling silo-ism, and need to continue to open up the free flow of information through out all lines of business and levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on improvements to the organizational structure, the skill of management at all levels, and communications

    Nice place to coast along in your career, but not for ambitious, driven types.

    I worked at Spirent Communications

    Pros

    The work life balance at Spirent is excellent.
    The teams are very good - there was very limited politicking and backstabbing.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling for a while (as of 2011), so pay tends to be under-competitive, and promotions are hard to get.
    It is a standard mid-size unexciting Silicon Valley company - very "Office Space" like. There's no excitement of the sort you get from being in a sexy new startup or in developing something that's going to change the world. It's pretty much do your work and go home, which is great if you want to focus on other things besides just work though.
