    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time

    Pros

    Great culture in the marketing department with "work hard, play hard" attitude. Good communication throughout the company on changes, still has the feeling of a smaller company despite being acquired and growing so much.

    Cons

    Benefits/compensation are not as strong as at other tech companies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people who remain are smart and loyal but are holding on to the good old days of Dom and "old Keerti". The office is very cool and modern with lots of parking.

    Cons

    New leadership did not foster the existing culture and have created a negative environment. Lots of ego and dispensing orders from ivory towers. They had a culture of customer first, customer last while caring for the employees, this is no longer the case.

    I have been working at Aruba Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall, great networking products and folks who are passionate about what they sell. Tons of learning and education possible. Huge emphasis on the customer.

    Cons

    Watch out for the cliques and favoritism in the workplace. While they don't discriminate, our local office was central to a ton of favoritism and lying to product results that management wants.

    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well..theres free coffee and you can build 2 years of experience. Then throw your hat into the Cisco or Salesforce ring after? However, within 2 years at Aruba.. oh they go, they go, where they end-up no body knows.

    Cons

    You're paid off a 60% base of whatever they deem you're worth. Market value, throw it out the window. Deal tracking, not going to happen. I could go on, but good heavens this is just Glassdoor, NOT a place to tell work stories like the ones that brew downstairs. Scarecrow, I'll miss you most.

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

    Pros

    1. A good place to start a career, lot of things to learn.

    Cons

    1. Cant grow your career, growth depends upon how many years one stay in the company not based on talent. If you out-perform don't expect any hike or promotion soon, it all depends upon # of years you stayed in the organization.

    I worked at Aruba Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent teams (both IC and mgt). People are very technically savvy and there is a real willingness to help out and succeed. Individuals are going out of their way to ensure products are of good quality and meet customers expectations. Top-down willingness to enhance the product capabilities with initiatives from engineering.

    Cons

    Some of the tools and methodologies used are pretty old. Sustaining is a very large portion of the work.
