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

    Pros

    Amazing People. Amazing Customers. Amazing Partners. Amazing Products. A chance to really make a difference.

    Cons

    The lack of coordination between product groups, engineering groups and both product and engineering with each other is just scary. Sometimes it feels like there are 3 competing companies in one.

    Advice to Management

    Two execs gone, a few more to go and we could really turn this into something that changes everything.
