    I worked at Arbor Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Arbor was once some of the best culture and folks before they were integrated from the Netscout integration. I give it 2 stars just because of what the company once was and for anyone contemplating an overlay/SME position of the product and technology

    Cons

    Culture is gone, products are archaic now with not much innovation. Product group and the rest of the company is led by too many long termers with limited knowledge of what they think is right, not the customers or employees feedback. Bunch of network engineers leading the company trying to act and play like security folks. Only selling to their existing customers over and over (don't care and can't break into new markets or customers Don't understand security or the evolving cyber market


  3. "Autonomy and benefits"

    Great working environment and friendly employees. Free snacks and a wide selection of coffee, tea, and fresh fruit

    I have been working at Arbor Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual work environment, flexible hours

    Cons

    Micromanagement from NetScout has driven away dozens of great people. Arbor employees’ formerly positive and enthusiastic attitudes dissolved to resignation and resentment. No room to grow. No bonuses, low raises due to poor parent company performance. Parent company upper management say one thing and do another and cannot be trusted to keep their word. No unified front in any department. No one knows what anyone else does after restructuring, very difficult to get things done.
