    It was a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsGood atmosphere
    Good conditions
    Keen focus on customer needs
    Good balance between work and life in most departments.
    Always looking to improve

    ConsAttempts to replace the startup/family atmosphere with a cold business relationship.
    The merger with CISCO is problematic. The corporate needs to listen more and play less politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the startup feel while balancing the corporate needs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Never a Dull Second

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPioneering, decisive, technically innovative and market leading. The organisation was always quick to see and seize opportunities, take risks and make investments in the future.

    ConsVery few. We often committed to almost impossible timescales which put significant pressure on delivery teams - but almost never failed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany of them made personal efforts to thank or congratulate individuals or teams on good work - which was a great morale booster and more valuable than a certificate or meaningless corporate gift.

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