    Pros

    Excellent salary
    Good benefits
    Talented colleagues
    Flex work schedule
    Good products
    Good work environment overall

    Cons

    Company struggles at times to scale, still suffers at times from small-company-overload issues
    Tough to advance, supported in principle but very tough to get into a role that you aren't already a perfect (i.e. already fully qualified) fit for

    I worked at Juniper Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They value their intern program. Great perks including field trips, weekly intern meetings, and general appreciation

    Cons

    The work is busy work that employers don't have time for. To be expected, but still busy work for the interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some interesting projects for interns to work with. That is more important than the environment time wise. Other than that great job!

    I have been working at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Quite a bit to learn, decent personal growth.
    Decent 401k plan

    Cons

    - Time off policies need to be stricter as people are exploiting unlimited vacation.
    - Some top level execs appreciate working late hours, on weekends and project such aspects of a team as accomplishments. This is absolutely wrong.
    - Some managers get a long rope and there is no accountability.

    Long term focus (stick with a plan beyond a quarter), leadership training, sellers often don't make good managers, invest in partner development

    I worked at Juniper Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative culture, team-oriented work, great colleagues, supportive environment, weekly lunches with colleagues.
    Whether your CS, Desktop Support or etc, gaining experience in computer networking will move you forward quickly in many technical disciplines.

    Cons

    Lacks cultural diversity (technology division)
    No free food

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in an intern training or a buddy program throughout internship (Facebook and eBay have one).

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at juniper about 5 years. Juniper has a lot of talented engineers who are innovating everyday to solve many technical challenges in our modern economy. They have a lean presence in real estate, They are very flexible with remote work arrangements. Vacation days are plenty. I have been lucky enough to have hands off bosses who let you work at your pace as long as your clients are happy and you are meeting all obligations.

    Cons

    the NYC office could use a facelift. Its a nice sales office but I feel the public spaces can be made much nicer since we have to meet potential clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the 'internet of things' concept will require lots of connectivity and security challenges. lets meet those in the commercial space and listen to businesses suggestions which can make their lives easier. lets get ahead of the game so we dont miss out like we did in the 100mb switching space.
