    Tons of autonomy, great opportunities for growth, lots of interesting and smart people.

    Cons

    The infrastructure is going through a huge transition right now, and the company is having lots of growing pains because of it. They're going to come out amazing on the other side, but it can be a little rough right now.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they're doing great.

    I have been working at Arista Networks full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Arista's engineering culture is great, no non-sense, no politics, just good engineering. The engineering management is first class engineers that are open to discussion, no ego people. The work is interesting, challenging and rewarding. Great contributors truly get recognized and rewarded for their output. There is a great culture of tooling and improving tools to make everyone more productive. Life balance is... great, people are encouraged to take their vacation and work a normal work week.

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

    Preserve the amazing culture as the team grows. Find ways to build bonds across offices.

    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 - There is a lot of outdated documentation which makes it harder to know what is still useful and what has been improved.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.
