    Excellent management team and great culture.

    Old offices in Sunnyvale and doesn't feel like a Silicon Valley "exciting" place to work.

    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small agile subsidiary with deep pocket 'dad' (HPE) to fund their R&D and huge supply chain for international growth.

    Cons

    Reactive vs proactive quality strategy. Don't get complex hardware issues. Think everything can be fixed quickly with 'new code'.

    Advice to Management

    Constant reorganizations and head-count reductions of the most skilled will lead to brain drain - be careful.

    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time

    Pros

    -Great and respectable brand in marketplace
    -Amazing customer briefings and corporate technical resources
    -Great strategic sales training that is nurtured in the field by sales leadership and sales teams.
    -TAC customer support will truly jump through hoops to make customers whole again. Once escalated, you know they will take care of your customer.
    -Strategic technology acquisitions (Niara, Rasa, Clearpass, etc.) continue to expand into security and other trending IT markets.

    Cons

    - Struggling to shake HPE stigma
    - Sales data is very poor, making it difficult to calculate compensation
    - HPE operations and supply chain still struggling to get inventory right resulting in unnecessary delays to customers.
    - Original Aruba culture starting to fade and merge with HPE
    - HPE unstable with Meg Whitman stepping down and 4 years in they are still continuing to take cost out of the business to optimize "cost structure"

    Advice to Management

    Protect your field sales people from HPE, if unchecked they will impact a lot of what makes Aruba a disruptor in the marketplace.

    Pros

    Fun company to work at, great products, love the technology and direction, good pay, decent benefits. Amazing integration of products.

    Cons

    Broken, heavy processes. Ridiculous travel requirements. I think a feedback or review mechanism for management would help a lot. Current manager could use some coaching.

    Advice to Management

    Let your people sell, don't hurt the profitable units with heavy handed cut backs.
