    Pros

    Flexible hours, remote work accepted, good salaries relative to the market, some folks have been there for years and years, so there is often some good tribal knowledge available.

    Cons

    Lots of change in leadership through the years I was there: frequent CMO changes, a few CEO changes. Also, policy changes to things like having an assigned cube. For a large percentage of their workforce, they've decided to just have a set of cubes available on a daily basis, and employees who are not working remotely that day get to choose from that set of cubes on a first come first serve basis. It wasn't very clear how they made their choices for who would be part of this homeless workforce, and it's disconcerting.

    Pros

    Lots of engineering projects to participate and if possibilities to work on different technologies within company. Strong technology community, where both junior and senior engineer can prosper.

    Cons

    too many reorgs, sometimes too hardware centric (but such are most network centric companies). Locations are not most convenient.

    Pros

    Some really smart people here, lots of Distinguished Engineers and fairly well respected company. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Middle management has crippled innovation. Bureaucratic management structures impede progress, seems there are too few people that are "do-ers". Products are behind the curve in many areas, playing catch up. Sales culture is not collarborative, you are an island, tribal knowledge abounds.

    Advice to Management

    Change and take a more aggressive start up mentatity. Stop managing upward. Hire resources that can help and cut the fat up top that is stifling the company.

    Pros

    Talented people, friendly work atmostphere, flexibility.

    Cons

    401k matching is not good at all, company should at least match 100%, currently they are matching only 30% of employee contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider increasing 401k matching for employees.
