    Pros

    The team work and ability to grow your skill set so that you can grow your career is one of the reasons to work for Brocade. Their Benefit package and Bonus program is another.

    Cons

    Like most enterprise companies, you will find politics in the ranks and will need to deal with it. They do tend to look at outsourceing work to India faster than other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that senior engineers while not always working as fast as younger engineers especially in India, do tend to have the experiance that allows them to do better work with less mistakes which in the long run costs the companany less money. Trying to get new college students up to speed can have costly delays on projects compared to keeping a few experianced engineers around.
