    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.

    Pros

    very good culture, technology, and direction

    Cons

    strategic investments in market segments due to finite R&D dollars compared to major competitor CISCO. This means you won't get every bell and whistle the competition has.
