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

    Pros

    Excelent team atmospher across all functions. pay is good. you're rewarded for your successes and given mastery over your projects. Flexible work environment is great.

    Cons

    Engineering BU managers tend to put their budget ahead of top-line growth. Also, yes, the work environment is flexible, but there have been instances when mgmt. "checks up" on their team to see if they've been coming in or if they've been working remotely. I have yet to see any disciplinary actions taken for working remotely too often.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the work environment the same (dont become too corporate, keep the flexible work environment). Also, the strategy is there, just needs to be executed successfully.
