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

Pros

Great campus. Fast moving. Some interesting projects. Cafeteria food is awesome (Bon Apetit); subsidized, but you have to pay. Free work out facilities. Good kitchens.

Cons

Senior IT management not aligned. Company not growing; just chugging along in a range. No interest in letting employees learn the business (e.g. no immersion, just start working and figure everything out). HCL offshore is extremely low quality.

Advice to Management

Figure out the business strategy and SELL.

    I have been working at Brocade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brocade still pays above average compensation in this market and the benefits (RSUs, bonuses, vacation, etc) are very good compared to other large companies. If you have a good manager, it can be a decent place to work.

    Cons

    New senior exec think they're changing to company around to "a new definition of success". That's a great sound bite but they're not fooling anyone. Tick tock!

    Advice to Management

    None.


  2. "A lot of turmoil"

    I worked at Brocade full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great technology. They allow time off for working for a charity.

    Cons

    This company has been poorly managed. They bought an IP networking company, (Foundry Networks) for about the same price as the market cap of this company. It turned out to be a big drain on the company.

    Advice to Management

    Do actions to slow the turnover of the company. Most of my former leadership only worked at companies for a year and then move on.
