    I have been working at Brocade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work with extremely dedicated, bright, and innovative people in the Networking Hardware and Software industry. I enjoyed working with the team members on various cross-functional teams at Brocade. The culture is awesome, and the leadership is superb. The execs seemed to truly want to create a work environment where the employees were highly engaged and hired a consulting firm to help with this endeavor.

    Cons

    Brocade is in the process of being sold to another company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and serve your team members especially during these times of uncertainty relating to the delay in the acquisition.
