    I worked at Arista Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is almost zero politics here. Very little micromanagement. Get to learn python scripting because we developers have to automate all the unit-test and functional tests. Singe code-base for all platforms. People are mostly friendly and helpful. Management is mostly good except a few minor exceptions. Location is good, buildings and facilities are brand new and good.

    Cons

    The initial 6 months were very daunting because of the steep learning curve. It was also lonely because the team does not have any welcome lunches for new hires and people don't invite you into their friend circle. In other companies we are felt more welcome.

    I have been working at Arista Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tons of autonomy, great opportunities for growth, lots of interesting and smart people.

    Cons

    The infrastructure is going through a huge transition right now, and the company is having lots of growing pains because of it. They're going to come out amazing on the other side, but it can be a little rough right now.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they're doing great.
