    I worked at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Work from anywhere, strong but languishing brand in the channel, strong in fast routers, new CEO from within should be good for the company, traditionally paid well, but may be changing post Elliott Associates investment

    Cons

    In too many markets and peanut buttering investment, dismantled security salesforce, software product marketing is non-existent, lots of executive churn over the past several years, ousted CEO shows board lack of judgement, no cohesive long-term strategy from top level vision down to where the businesses are run, highly engineering led --marketing is highly corporate brand oriented, basic blocking and tackling product marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a stronger discipline of ownership at the mid-levels and resource the businesses for success, if not, sell them off or shutter them down, get a real vision that means something vs co-creative planet, tie vision to strategy to execution steps clearly

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is still good. The new HQ is very nice. Like Sun, Juniper built its big campus and moved into it to die.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Juniper continues its slide into irrelevance and failure. Great tech and talent squandered by incompetent management.

    Pros

    Quite a bit to learn, decent personal growth.
    Decent 401k plan

    Cons

    - Time off policies need to be stricter as people are exploiting unlimited vacation.
    - Some top level execs appreciate working late hours, on weekends and project such aspects of a team as accomplishments. This is absolutely wrong.
    - Some managers get a long rope and there is no accountability.
