    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at NetScout Systems full-time (More than a year)

    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

  5. Software Engineering Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    I worked at NetScout Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Excellent Potential, Sufficient Excecution

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    High-Paced environment with a large amount of room to improve and drive the industry through innovation and intelligence.

    Cons

    The potential is rarely explored, much less executed on. On one hand, keeping the business running is and should be top priority. On the other hand, refusing to adapt and change with the industry standard will move first-place standing farther and farther away.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your backlog prevent your individual contributors from doing their jobs.
