    Pros

    Nice new and spacious campus. Very clean and well kept facilities.

    Cons

    A few people call all the shots. Just keep quiet and do as you are told. Do not try to change the existing way of doing things.

    Horrible attitude of senior people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major overall needed on way things are done in the company at all levels.

    I have been working at Ruckus Wireless full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Relies heavily on the individual's drive and skill set, but there is an amazing team of people behind you always willing to help. Real college-like atmosphere. Outside Sunnyvale the team is mostly home-office based or in tiny 1-2 person offices so it's very flexible. Company invests heavily in its people and is not afraid of hiring. A strong 'virtual' approach to doing business with a lot automation of internal processes.

    Cons

    Need to be self-driven. Days could go by where you have no contact with your colleagues. At the same time, your workload can be very high and may exceed what you are used to especially in Europe, so you need to be ready to push-back (however the company will give you all the resources you need if they're justified). Expect a lot of travel which may sound exciting at first but will take its toll on your personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you are a GLOBAL company. Your upper management is way too US-focused and completely oblivious to the different priorities in other regions.

    Great technology, Exec team less than honorable! (i.e. CEO, VP, Sales). Sales VP, gives your business and deals away!

    Pros

    Technology, some people, logo, brand

    Cons

    Back stabbing environment, execs don't own up and throw employees under bus at will. Some unethical practices overseas! Execs have no backbone!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Small industry, take care of employees, learn to manage people not just the business! Stop micromanaging! Own your responsibility! Stop fearing Selina! Execs do not understand SP business!

    Pros

    At the engineering level, there is some very good hard-working talent here.
    The Wi-Fi products have some advanced features.
    Very good CEO...

    Cons

    1. Territorial employees endeavor to promote themselves by back-stabbing and bad-mouthing other employees...
    2. Mid-level managers don't seem to be clued in or unable to facilitate new employees getting up to speed, which ultimately reflects on employee record negatively.
    3. Directors with "Management by fear" tactics, and sweatshop expectations.
    4. No life/work balance in this company....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the executive level;
    Review all employee departures personally to find out what really happened....
