    I have been working at Big Switch Networks full-time (More than a year)


    The product/technology is unique. Great company culture, benefits and overall atmosphere to work. The people here are just amazing. They are very open, knowledgeable and willing to help you to progress your career. Potential for advancement is very much available. I've been working here for 2 years and still find excitement coming to work everyday.


    Can't think of any cons for this place. Potential long hours work is expected in certain quarters for a start-up environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep growth and development at the top of the priority list. Innovative ideas are what drive future endeavors.
