    I have been working at Aruba Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great technology and products, still a slight heart beat of the Aruba Culture that HPE has not squashed. Engineers are great. The core Aruba team is legit and would follow them into any battle and they can win any fight against a market competitor.

    Cons

    HPE forcing it's dying will on the company. Forced to use archaic systems that are built for management not sales. Sales data is non existent. So much distance between the field and top management they only focus on global 100. HPE is in the process of ruining another great company. It is death by a thousand cuts. Should have never sold the company to HPE.

    Advice to Management

    Aruba management keep fighting and don't give into the HPE blackhole that it is. A mass exit of great talent is coming. We just can't take it anymore.
