    I have been working at Spirent Communications full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Could be a great environment depending on your manager & team
    Casual atmosphere
    Flexible schedule
    Training or resources for improving skillset are available if you ask for them
    Opportunities to work on more challenging projects if you can make the business case for them

    Cons

    Compensation & benefits are on the low end of tech jobs in Silicon Valley
    Internal politics & big egos
    Old school way of thinking & executing solutions
    Undefined career ladder - you will need to be able to negotiate and advocate for yourself. This might be true of most companies, however.
    Too many silos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your ego at the door. Be a leader, not a "boss"
    Stop using antiquated metrics
    Use a more rigorous process for vetting candidates. Bad hires can cost a lot of time, money & resources and worst of all, lower employee morale.
