    I have been working at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Pros: People, Commitment to Excellence, Customer and Partner focus, ability to deliver on promises, marketing and sales as one team, challenger mentality not afraid to 'build the best' and take chances, re-found focus on development and focused products to lead the market in software and cloud and mobility with own silicon development and use of other OEM technology partners. Current CEO is a rock-star and respected by all levels of organization.

    Cons

    Time requirements of employees, managers and director and above are high - but normal for leading technology companies in this day and age.
    Decision making is improving and re-commitment to values and culture.
    Activist investors have had a large say in last nine months, and some necessary workforce reductions and organization decisions, management has taken back control to do what is right in balancing costs and growth and profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuity, stability and focus for growth.

    Pros

    Nice people mostly. Pays well.

    Cons

    Their core business is shrinking rapidly and they are unable to expand into new areas. Acquisitions were not well thought out nor well integrated.

    Major decisions are made at an arthritic pace and then quickly discarded.

    Mostly they need to just stick to one strategy for more than a few months. But I fear it's already too late because the market for big, expensive switches and routers is disappearing rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late. Slice up the company and sell it.
