    Pros

    Decent company with good benefits. Very young crowd. Lot of energy. The company takes good care of employees. Lots of exciting events all year round.

    Cons

    Some groups are very inefficient which is causing a slower growth for the overall company. Although the topmost leadership is good and making good decisions it’s failing in its execution because of mid level corporate crap.

    Advice to Management

    Certain senior leaders are driving things based on whims. Not enough thought behind decisions. This is causing a lot of chaos. Luckily Aruba is in a good business which is allowing it to survive in spite of such lapses in judgements.

    Pros

    Aruba is an incredible company with solid leadership, amazing people, and fantastic products.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the politics of HPE have trickled in and it's very challenging to hire enough people for all the work that needs to get done. It's a big reason why people leave. Aruba has been able to stay as separate as they can from HPE, which helps their culture immensely, but they need to hire more people because everyone works crazy hours there.

    The health benefits are also the worst I've seen for large company and the bonus program for many is a joke. But again, Aruba is tied to HPE, not their own programs anymore unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and the time they dedicate to their jobs by supporting them with a work/life balance, better health benefits and bonus program.

    Pros

    Excellent management team and great culture.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Marketing is weak

    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.
