    Pros

    Very people-focused (human capital!); extremely generous with pay, benefits, training, onboarding-you name it; great work environment; great management; dedicated to employee success; flexible work space (remote or on-site); has two cafeterias, gym and gym reimbursement (too many benefits to name). Management really wants to see its employees do well, keep them with the company and promote them and give them breadth opportunities, as well. They are committed to their employees. They don't do b.s. performance reviews. It's all about how YOU are doing versus what you'd set out to do early in the year... No canned upper management reviews with the obligatory "thanks for all you do"... Can't tell you how many times I saw that by every manager at my previous company. The reviews there didn't matter - you were a number. NOT HERE!!

    Cons

    Depends on the department. Some are more frenetic than others. Everyone works very hard, but they are all very nice while working. Lots of respect given to your colleagues. So far, no major cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Rami as the CEO, Robyn as the CFO, Vince as the EVP of Sales. They are fantastic, real/authentic and I trust what they are telling us and doing to help the company be successful.

    Pros

    Easy to share ideas with the upper management. Working in a very focused and effective environment. It's the best place if you want to build great products. Jonathan and Rami are very good leaders.

    Cons

    The intermediate size of the company: not really fast as a startup but not robust against market fluctuations as a big company. Should dedicate a larger part of the budget to innovation and new projects for growth.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Overall, it is a very exciting time to be a part of Juniper...the CEO is great, the innovation is happening and the company is becoming aligned in many areas! From great employee programs to development opportunities, wouldn't be any place else for my career. Great benefits and pay for employees!

    work/life balance is improving, so not as bad as it was in the past. The company is working on this are and we believe they are genuine in making a difference. We passed 2014 and the sky is the limit now!!!

    Keep being genuine and caring for the employees and the results they deliver.

    Once a NPI is launched - please stick to the plan. Take input for all vested parties (esp. Program Management) before you change direction.
