      I have been working at Arista Networks full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Great work-life balance Flexible time-off Quality work right from the get-go Superb culture of working as a team No politics across teams Easy to move across similar teams Easy to work on different kinds of projects, just ask your manager

      Cons

      Immigration department is lazy and too slow in getting things done. Need to push them at every step. Even after pushing them, there's no guarantee that things would get done on time. The team wasted 6-months of my time in applying for my PERM. There are other issues that I'm aware of through colleagues. Compensation is below-par. Employees need to be compensated more for the amount of work that they're made to do. If...

          Pros

          Great work-life balance. Smart and charismatic employees. Great outlook in technology

          Cons

          Adapt some of its business aspects to functioning more like a mid-size company.

          Advice to Management

          It's best to consider your employee's thoughts and concerns about the company. Seems like management can shut out any suggestions or comments from lower level employees.

          Pros

          Arista has a good work-life balance with flexible hours and they just started matching 401k contributions. The products are more reliable than their competitors' are, and Arista employs a comprehensive automatic unit-testing system that is unlike anything the competition has.

          Cons

          During interviews, Arista proudly touts that every employee is afforded time to do interesting work with teams employing rotating job schedules in which every employee takes turns at the interesting aspects of software engineering and the not-so-interesting aspects of software engineering. What actually happens is that team managers come up with multiple ways to describe bug-fixing and rotate the same 2-3 employees...

          Advice to Management

          Not all of us were here before the IPO. You need to give newer employees a reason to stay instead of taking them for granted. The inane Areview/peer-bonus system might have worked out well enough 5 years ago when everybody was grateful to have a job at a startup with a bright future and a big payout imminent. Those of who weren't here before the IPO need a real reason to stay, especially when other companies are...
