    Many good people working on many interesting problems

    Staff Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Westford, MA

    ProsIf you like the culture, drink the kool-aide, and want to be a small part of something bigger than yourself, you will fit in well.

    ConsSome organizations are vastly better (in terms of effectiveness) than others. If you're looking to break paradigms - this isn't quite the place to do it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management, from SVPs down to group managers need a real culling. The top/vision people need to connect to the bottom/visionary people, and we need to replace process and "following the decision" people with competent getting-things-done people.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    very poor company to work for

    Director of Engineering (Current Employee)
    Westford, MA

    Prosjuniper offers a remote work environment

    Consexecutive management is not held accountable. somewhat militaristic and harsh treatment of the employees. The company has a terrible track record with acquisitions and has layoffs frequently. Employees somewhat get treated as contractors. The soul of the company is lost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave human resources step up and get more engaged with what is really going on in the company and stop the bullying by the execs.

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

    Executive Management Treats Sr. Managers & Sr. Contractors Like Disposable Pawns

    Senior Program Manager (Remote Worker) (Former Employee)
    Westford, MA

    ProsWorking remotely from home with great peers and decent compensation (until the cost-cutting mayhem began).

    ConsExecutive management blatantly wastes millions on unnecessary and unjustified services that add no value and enjoy making their minions rework their project proposals and deliverables because they expect that work to enable them to gouge customers to make up for those losses.

    Those actions depressed the stock price and in a panic they released a huge number of contractors and bought out sr. staff for early retirement, which did little to improve their lot and contributed to an already-depressing jobs outlook.

    Sr. Managers/directors are disconnected from the remote staff they manage and everything is done via conference calls, but there is very little personal contact, leaving most remote workers to function in a vacuum with little oversight one week, and micromanagement from director-level management with no people skills the next. They care little for the details, either. I was asked to perform a comprehensive business analysis of their internal program management processes and exposed a $600K per year boondoggle that was completely unnecessary and a pet project of the CFO. My manager was too timid to present the findings or make any difference by planting a seed, so those 70-hour workweeks performing the analysis were wasted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOrganize your remote work staff more efficiently and establish continuous quality improvement practices after a CMMI-based audit is performed by your PMO. Don't have a PMO? Charter one. You'll find better-performing people and projects have PMOs supporting them. Listen to the squeaky wheels who desire higher quality methods and expectations and empower them to help managers improve their performance. People are anxious to add value but without leadership are lost in a worker-bee mentality with little hope for the future.

    great place, great projects, great workforce

    Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
    Westford, MA

    ConsNot much except not the most happening location (Westford, MA) and conference calls at unusual times of the day (communication across time zones)

    Great place to work, good compensation and benefits.

    Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
    Westford, MA

    ProsGet to work with a lot of very smart people on very high visibility projects. If you thrive under pressure and love to work hard, this is a good place to work.

    ConsAs in any large company, there are plenty of politics and bureaucracy. But it is not as bad as it could be. Pressure to excel and meet tight deadlines is always there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPositive reinforcement works better than negative feedback. Tendency to hunt for a scapegoat when things go wrong.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
