    Pros

    All employees know and most support our mission. Very unique, differentiated value proposition and employee-friendly culture. Customers and their issues are close on a daily basis and all functions are connected to them. Managers are hands-on, no suits will last long.

    Cons

    The company is too deal-driven, and sales has too much influence on directions. Most managers lack initiative and depend to much on central direction.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new blood to refresh technology and sales thinking.

    Pros

    Big company backing with positive profitability and clear goals.

    Cons

    The Business Unit I work under within NetScout is small and not getting any traction up to EVP level.

    Advice to Management

    None, they treat employees well.

    Pros

    Good group of very smart people. The company does care for its employees, and you can see that in the long tenure of most employees. Senior management is very deliberate in guiding the direction of the company, from development through sales. NetScout knows what it wants to be.

    Cons

    The environment is not necessarily for the entrepreneurial at heart. Although input is accepted and encouraged, the company's entire direction comes strictly from the CEO. The CEO is very smart, and has done well with the company over its history, so things are bad, just don't expect to help drive vision.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on building true management qualities in those you put in positions to lead others. If you don't build a firm foundation of people who can motivate, develop and empower those, and build leadership skills in others, you'll miss out on having a truly great company.

    Pros

    Big Paycheck
    Company stock performs well (not sure how)

    Cons

    The bottom 6 reviews are by the company employees, if you want real reviews, sign into glassdoor and take a look at the next 100 reviews.

    - Most unprofessional
    - unnecessary gossip
    - management doesn't even have a college degree
    -Executive management has no idea what's going on. Also, power revolved around a very few people
    - Product Management doesn't have a roadmap
    In short, this company is going to be a stopping point in your career; these guys are going to humiliate you big time. They will try to pose that everything is mission critical but everything is just meaningless. There is no differentiation between services and sales. Plus you will have to deal with a lot of attitude by a huge group of dumb founded, narcissistic and egotistic people.

    Advice to Management

    Please resign and go sell girl scout cookies


  10. Software Engineering Intern

    I worked at NetScout Systems

    Pros

    Was paired with mentor, great flexibility in role, learned a lot from this experience, worked on a project, overall great experience.

    Cons

    Locked into working individually. Wasn't able to contribute to a project on a team, however, individual work was interesting enough to be occupied with role.

    Advice to Management

    Great job in dealing with interns; however, don't be afraid to challenge their abilities.

    Pros

    Friendly teams, flexible schedules, telecommuting option for some positions. The employee benefits are exceptional and longer vacations are great and easy to obtain permission for.

    Cons

    Can get locked into a niche position. With offices all over the world communication within a team can become troublesome with different team members starting conference calls at 1:00 AM or later.
