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

    Pros

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 - There is a lot of outdated documentation which makes it harder to know what is still useful and what has been improved.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