    I have been working at Brocade full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Brocade seems to have a good idea of where they want to go, and generically how to get there.

    The company also seems really happy to take people along with them on the journey.

    Cons

    Some of the detail is missing...

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too stuck on the message, make sure everything else is right as well...

    Pros

    I've lost count of the number people who have been promoted this Fiscal Year, not just in our region but across the organization. There is no holding back - Talent, Hard Work and Ambition are rewarded at this company the Sky really is the limit here.

    Cons

    Our market leading SAN and Ethernet Fabric products and our innovation around software networking ensure there is a bright future at Brocade.

    Advice to Management

    Our CEO Lloyd Carney joined the company 18 months ago and on his first visit to the UK office pledged to treble our stock price from just over $4 dollars within 5 years. Yesterday we hit $12.30 .3.5 years ahead of schedule, so my only message to the management team is *Keep up the good work*!

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

    Pros

    Fantastic product set, both on the IP and SAN side, great place to work if you are looking for a true "challenger" organisation rather than sticking with the same old same old. Uniquely placed to become the data centre vendor of choice in the next few years. Real positive energy throughout the business, particularly EMEA where I have first hand experience. Have had a clear out of negative minded individuals over the past 24months which has accelerated the progression no end. Really fun and exciting place to work, cannot recommend it highly enough. Strong regional leadership at VP and management level, very clear on the way forwards.

    Cons

    for positive minded individuals, there are few if any cons to working at Brocade these days

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the concise messaging to the troops and developing the game changing products that have been coming out over the past 12months in particular.
