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

    Pros

    This place is so much fun that time just passes by and all you remember at the end of the day, week, month and year ... is the awesomeness you witnessed and you delivered. Well-paced ! No boring meetings. Emphasis is on quality of work and not the superficial gloss. Best of the industry engineers around to keep one highly motivated and inspired. You need not work to please some particular person. Performance...

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

    Pros

    By far, the most advanced / amazing software architecture and internal tools I've ever seen. Great culture, little management overhead, and a ton of really, really smart people. Lots of flexibility in changing projects, lots of opportunities for learning (from SDN to Linux kernel, to switching ASICs, to Networking protocols, to internal tools, you name it...). A total "engineering culture" (mottos "do the right thing"...

    Cons

    Initial learning curves longer than usual (but you eventually get there..)

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

    Pros

    Only pro is work pressure is less

    Cons

    - the worst part is that when interns & freshers join, they force them to rating the company as 5 stars on glassdoor. This is pathetic. So do not go by the ratings. - worst HRs - no job levels, so lesser growth opportunities - no perks besides the base salary, which is also very less compared to market. - no annual hikes yet. Freshers are earning more than you, which is demotivating.

    Advice to Management

    - Please have good HRs - Give annual hikes, and on time. - Have consultation with employees on career-growth. - Gave some perks to employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Arista Networks for less than a year

    Pros

    Not many pros. The company is doing good and may go public in the near future and they have stock options. The work culture is ok. The work itself is challenging and requires a decent amount of knowledge on networks.

    Cons

    The compensation is average and there are zero facilities in the office. The bangalore office is not at all worth it. If you really want to join this company join the HQ and not the bangalore office.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the work facilities
