    Pros

    It is a great place to work and I've learnt a lot in the past 1.5 years. Management is really good.

    Cons

    Documentation is not that great. Juniper needs to manage their technical documentation a lot better than what they are doing.

    Pros

    Products, roadmaps and features are king. Culture prizes ethical behavior and open and honest comunication.

    Cons

    Track record of not delivering on time. Also all other functions are subservient to engineering, resulting in products and roadmaps that don't resonate with customers. I've attended numerous meetings with partners and customers who are providing direct feedback to engineering teams, only to be cut off in min-sentence and told "thanks, but you're wrong and here's why." Awkward silence...

    Advice to Management

    Connect with the customer more honestly, more frequently, more directly.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to work alongside engineers on day to day projects. Toured contract manufacturer to see the whole engineering process.

    Cons

    When all else fails, engineers build boxes and make holes, though these are highly advanced boxes that hold some serious hardware.

    Advice to Management

    Allow teams to make full engineering decisions. Critical for the advancement of products and processes. Great teams provide good work.

    Pros

    If you want to be on the leading edge of computer networks, Juniper is the company to work for. The people are great, the compensation is wonderful, and the challenge is always interesting.

    Cons

    I have worked for Juniper for a couple years now, and I have yet to find something to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue investing in your people and they will love you for it. You've created a wonderful environment to work.

    Pros

    Nice people, good technology, some market awareness, helpful environment, generally strong reputation

    Cons

    I work in commercial sales. The company sold off SSL VPN and essentially got out of the WLAN business. Additionally, there has been very little product development for Branch or perimeter firewalls. In essence, Juniper is not aligned with the commercial marketplace. They are trying to shoe-horn larger networking solutions into the commercial space. It can work at times but not in every geographic territory.

    Advice to Management

    Be authentic. Stop talking about the commitment to commercial. Start executing on a real strategy. Commercial needs WLAN, SSL VPN, competitive firewalls and technical; resources to assst in proof of concept testing and product solution positioning with end users.

    Invest in marketing, invest in people, stick to a multi-year story.
