    I worked at Spirent Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always the latest, cutting edge technologies. Very good work\life balance. Benefits packages are excellent.

    Cons

    Industry is changing and the company is having to remake itself as a software and security firm. Don't know if this is sustainable long term.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and try to hold on to top talent. On that same note, look at your people for signs of being "Retired in Place". I saw some of this while I was there, and it's not beneficial to the company.
