    Pros

    Since the acquisition by Hewlett Packard Enterprise four years ago, Aruba has maintained the small company family culture that is typically lost after the absorption by a giant company. Credit can be attributed to Keerti Melkote, co-founder of Aruba, for his fierce passion for Aruba and its employees. From encouraging a work/life balance to instilling fun in the workplace with celebrations and community outreach, Aruba is an attractive place to work at, have fun and grow professionally.

    Cons

    Aruba continues to fight to keep our brand strong and independent alongside the HPE brand. Larger companies equal longer processes which continues to be a struggle for Aruba employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Aruba as an independent and strong leader in its space.

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

    Pros

    Good technology, Excellent engineering team. You can achieve your goals by developing personal relationships.

    Cons

    Management is very self promoting, little to no guidance for new employees, Not a leader but follow market trends, Very crowded with no personal space, No work life balance, very little diversity of any kind, Compensation is below average, Bonus and Stock options are a joke. Changing priorities and goals before reaching them multiple times a year. high turnover - only management is stable. Work is around the clock 24/7- hard on people with families and kids.

    Advice to Management

    Be less self promoting at the expense of your employees, Be more aware of how much ego and office politics is hurting the company. upgrade benefits and compensation- it will help attract true talent. Understand the affect of changing priorities before meeting goals. Don't push back on anything that is "HP", provide better physical work environment- employees are your most valuable asset, treat them well.
