    I have been working at NetScout Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere. "Lean but now mean". Flex-time. Great benefits. Feel empowered. If you see something that needs to be done or a better way to do it, go for it and you will be rewarded. Great people. Very little attrition. Profitable, stable company.

    Cons

    This is a benign dictatorship, no democracy here. You need to be able to live with senior management overriding your decisions. You will wear multiple hats.

    Advice to Management

    I have little advice to offer senior management. I think they are doing a great job. I would recommend periodic communication of the company status and direction in the market.

    I worked at NetScout Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Netscout brings a lot of strong opportunities to the table. There are some great people to work with and draw from experience, there is opportunity to travel around the world. Salaries are respectable, and benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for real advancement. This company promotes heavily based on seniority, and this is evident in a lot of the higher level positions held by people whose primary experience is with Netscout. This isn't always a bad thing, they understand the customers and technology very well, but management styles and methods are outdated at best. You won't really have the opportunity to move up in the company unless you work from one of the base offices. If you are a remote employee (and there are a lot of them) get comfortable with your position.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new blood in management roles. Don't remove the people there currently, but look to bring in some new roles from outside the company. Don't forget about the remote employees, some of them have upward focused goals as well.

    Pros

    Company size is not too big and they pay well. Commissions are on time and predictable based on achievement.

    Cons

    Too many hours, seems to be part of the culture. Work and life balance can be at risk.
