    I have been working at Ruckus Wireless

    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.

    Tremendous experience, never a dull moment, lots of opportunities to learn and grow

    Current Employee - Engineering Management in Sunnyvale, CA

    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.
