    Good culture if you can duck the politics

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsExcellent technology
    Top-notch engineers - Development, Support, etc
    Sometimes Juniper's direction is down-right visionary
    Very professional environment (more than most)
    Excellent facilities, culture, and perks

    ConsUnfocused: e.g. We acquired companies then dropped them
    Painfully political at times
    Volitile, at times even unstable. Your project, product, or job might disappear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery one of you is excellent. However, you occassionally have some awkwardness working with each other. Follow-through on your best ideas, even when the market gets unnerving. Acquire companies only if you are certain the talent/products fit with a long-term strategy -- and follow through! Otherwise, whenever possible, develop the solution in-house; again, you have some of the finest talent in the industry.

    Good Products, Horrible Management

    Major Account Manager (Former Employee) Herndon, VA

    ProsGood benefits and good income potential with the right territory.

    ConsGrossly incompetent mid level managers. The company chooses to retain some of the worse managers for fear of being sued rather than deal with the actual problem. This causes a very high attrition rate of the really talented people that work there. When it gets to the point of complete ridiculousness, they are transferred to new positions to destroy morale in another department. Without a doubt, the worst management I have ever experienced in my entire career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean up your management structure and get rid of the dead wood. Stop allowing mid level managers to over inflate their titles just to boost their ego's. Not every manager is a VP. Although they pretend to be!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was once a great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTalented people to work with.

    ConsLots of lay-offs of very good engineers and pay cuts to current ones so they satisfy shareholders. Managers promote themselves rather quickly but good performing engineers are mostly overlooked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDedicated and bright engineers is what keeps the company selling products and providing services. Many managers seem to care only about their own good.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
