    Pros

    Its a very great place to work with a very laid-back atmosphere. Colleagues are very helpful and one of the most knowledgeable people in the VOIP industry.

    Cons

    Does not match 401k plan.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on the good work.

    Pros

    Opportunity is what you make of it, and you can go far by making the most of it. This is a place that rewards hard work and intelligence. Dynamic CEO.

    Cons

    Can be a little like high school sometimes; there's an in-crowd.

    I have been working at Acme Packet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has great culture and the highest quality engineers. The people there are very committed to producing great products. There are a lot of very smart and dedicated people there.

    Cons

    Occasionally they have developed some features in the products just to make a deal or sale, but this should diminish now that they are part of Oracle, which is more product focused rather than sales drivven.

    Advice to Management

    The company should be more strategic focusing more on the product and less tactical (sales driven)
