    I have been working at Arista Networks

    Pros

    - leadership team. Andy Bechtolsheim is a hardware genius, so you can be confident you are building products people will buy. Jayshree Ullal knows the networking business like the back of her hand... Andy builds it, Jayshree sells it. David Cheriton's insight into software architecture has provided a way of decoupling processes that is unique in the networking industry and removes so much of the painful overhead...

    Cons

    You work on products that your non-techie friends are unlikely to understand. It's not as sexy as social networking or whatever.

    Advice to Management

    Preserving the culture through the kind of growth we are experiencing will take focus and commitment. We cannot be victims of our own success.

    I have been working at Arista Networks

    Pros

    Great business results, industry-leading products, interesting/innovative software environment, good use of automation, engineers treated with respect

    Cons

    It's not "Web 2.0", not as many fringe benefits as some other silicon valley companies

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize great software as a key differentiator in the networking space.
