I have been working at NetScout Systems full-time (More than a year)
Still getting projects and paying the bills.
I work in a startup acquired by a company that Netscout acquired earlier this year. It went to hell after Netscout's acquisition. Netscout management team does not know the limit of the tool but keeps writing blank checks to customers to get as many deals in as possible, no matter how unfeasible the requirements are. They kept asking employees to make empty promises to customers about features that our engineering team will never be able to deliver. Field engineers are left to suffer from unable to deliver. Even worse, the pricing is getting ridiculously low by Netscout management team, as compared to the pricing our original management team would fight for. Why would the management team cut throat if Netscout is already the biggest player in network measurement? Why we employees doing good software be treated like cheap labour?
Advice to Management
Do not use your out-of-day hardware thinking to manage software. Know your product, or not touch it at all so as not to ruin it.
