Pros

Engg is aggressive in nature and high is expected off of employees. Bonus program has been very good inspite of having competitive salaries. Rewards performance very well. The technical talent is abundant and you really get to work on products to completion and no dragging or outright cancellation of projects. It is a good place to learn, excel and grow.

Cons

Pressure is high. Performance bar is high. Always gears itself to utilize resources (people) as best as they can and it could involve more group changes, work assignment changes etc. You should be willing to jump in and delivery when asked.

Advice to Management

Just stop making stupid acquisitions and concentrate on company's strengths.

    Pros

    Well run organization. Support structure is better than most so it isn't too hard to get things done.

    Cons

    Not a very "fun" environment. Seen as a boring part of the tech industry. Past stock scandal still casts a shadow even thought the company is now VERY careful to do everything the right way.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the company's story better so that we know what we are doing and why we should be excited about it.

    Pros

    The people. Brocade is loaded with very talented people who I enjoy working with and will have in my life for years to come. Also, Brocade does tend to have it's act together. We have our challenges, just like any company, but overall Brocade fosters a self leading, flexible and fair environment.

    Cons

    Clear action with respect to the corporate direction. The SAN industry can be very competitive and fickle.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember that the success of the company, the quality of the products and the quality of customer service IS achieved only through the employees. Keep the goals and expectations aligned with the Vision and make sure you are recognizing and compensating appropriately.
