    I have been working at Brocade (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work culture is good, team members are helping. Good learning opportunities. Sometimes work may become monotonous. Flexible timings and work from home options.

    Cons

    No cons as such, depends from team to team. Some teams have internal politics but its not so widespread. Overall it is a good company both for freshers and experienced people.

    Advice to Management

    It will be good if they show more concern for their employees. Lot of changes at the top management level every now and then. does not help the work environment
