    Some teams are split across different continents that make it hard to coordinate across timezones.

    I have been working at Arista Networks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Plenty to learn - Smart people - Projects are engaging - They let you focus on what you want to learn and let you explore/learn with projects that you can even propose yourself! - Easy to move between "Teams" to work on new projects - perks ( food! )

    Cons

    - High learning curve! so be ready to read. - There is a lot of outdated documentation which makes it harder to know what is still useful and what has been improved. Thus there is a lot of reading to be done at the beginning.

    I worked at Arista Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is almost zero politics here. Very little micromanagement. Get to learn python scripting because we developers have to automate all the unit-test and functional tests. Singe code-base for all platforms. People are mostly friendly and helpful. Management is mostly good except a few minor exceptions. Location is good, buildings and facilities are brand new and good.

    Cons

    The initial 6 months were very daunting because of the steep learning curve. It was also lonely because the team does not have any welcome lunches for new hires and people don't invite you into their friend circle. In other companies we are felt more welcome.
