They recognize hard work and compensate accordingly.

    Pros

    A great engineering team that prides itself on innovation and quality.
    An aggressive pace and the freedom to get your job done.
    No dirty tricks - the company does a great job at being fair, honest and above board.
    Decent benefits, competitive pay and positive work environment.
    One of the most eclectic group of senior execs that surprisingly works well together.
    One of the best balance sheets in the business for a company their size and in their market
    Is very loyal to their channel partners and customers.

    Cons

    24 x 7 culture - You get emails at all hours - but at least you get responses.
    The company is likely going to be acquired because of their success, and then who knows what will happen.
    The stock is woefully under appreciated (even at a high EPS) and gets banged around by the effects of others in their market, even when the Ruckus is bucking the trend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do best, making a Ruckus in the marketplace and defying the conventional wisdom.

    Pros

    Financially, this is a good company. Ruckus truly is the master of its own success or failure.
    - Salary is good.
    - Individually, everyone wants to contribute.

    Cons

    - No accountability in the company from top down.
    - Lack of communication. Employees though want to do their best, don't always know what that is.
    - Expectation that employees work all hours.
    - Too much self-congratulations.
    - No 401K matching and no increase in PTO, the benefits are below average for a public company.

    I have been working at Ruckus Wireless full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very exciting place to work, never a dull moment (hence the name), company continues to grow and has become one of the established leaders in enterprise and carrier Wi-Fi markets. Product lineup continues to expand into new technology areas, with generally a friendly and collaborative environment internally.

    Cons

    Company seems to sometimes bite off more than it can chew, perhaps too aggressive sometimes? Can be a bit chaotic at times internally given overall aggressive objectives and plans, so exciting if you like to be challenged but can be a bit overwhelming if you don't handle change well or aren't able to effectively multitask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do a better job of providing recognition for individual achievements and hitting the target on projects etc.
