    I worked at Meru Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    none left. company once had many smart people, few they left and remaining left or leaving. new recruits are hardly staying more than a year.

    Cons

    new engg management is real bad, dishonest and disrespectful. due to bad financial conditions, staff is reduced to less than half, engineers are given too much work and firing threats are given openly. new recruits are needed only for first 6 months and then treated like use and throw. and of course, buck stops at top management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    culture in engg is toxic and loser.

    I worked at Meru Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Technology clearly different (and better in specific apps) than competition
    Great example of "best of breed" versus going with Juniper or Cisco
    Good focus on key verticals (healthcare, education, etc.)

    Cons

    Lack of marketing - market does not know how good Meru technology is
    Need to make WLAN compatible with all devices
    No one market seems to embrace Meru (maybe focus on just education?)
    Few partnerships that matter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build up an ecosystem with strong partners; will help build confidence in solution
