    I have been working at Network Equipment Technologies as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Allowed for commuting. Shuttle from ACE provided. Clear company objectives. Safety and Security a top priority. Company culture was very welcoming.

    Cons

    Company seemed to be loosing track of competition. Not in tune with the changing times. Relied to heavily on legacy product without bringing the original innovation from the early days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the competition. Find new avenues to compete and new technologies to discover. Keep up with the current trends.

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I learned a lot while at NET and had good working relationships with realistic goals. Tool access was pretty good and expectations were reasonable.

    Cons

    Company strategy kept changing and wasn't always very clear. Teams weren't always very well organized and there were a lot of reorgs during my time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Present clear goals to the employees and stick with them.

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Had a good reputation at one time

    Cons

    I worked here in the early 90's. How I wish glassdoor had been around then, to warn me off of this badly troubled company. Riddled with nepotism, greed and accounting fraud. Not even seasoned managers could save it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have sold the company a long time ago.

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with in an environment that was scaled for a much larger amount of business.

    Cons

    Tough for sales to get traction to convert trials and POCs to volume sales of new enterprise-oriented products. But that was the on-going theme: good trials and POC customers; little conversion at the rates needed to sustain ~$100 M sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Already taken: sell the company
