Pros

Even as an intern, there was great compensation. It was very obvious that the HR cared a great deal about the intern's experiences. There were many company hosted events that promoted networking and relationship development. It was a great place to begin a career in the corporate world.

Cons

At the time, the company was slightly disorganized due to the recent acquisition. Chain of commands was a little obscure, and it was often a little difficult to find the right person to talk to about a specific product or process simply because the hierarchy was very obscure.

Advice to Management

I think the company would greatly benefit if there was a more organized system of command, especially with a company, such as Brocade, that intends to continue growing in future times.

    Pros

    They pay well, and promote the company as being a good place to work. Overall employees and contractors are treated with respect. I think some teams may have a good culture- its ALL about the manager.

    Cons

    Brocade management is out of date. They have a be-in-the office from 9-5 mentality, ineffective technology for employees, endless work cycles and nothing seems to change, silo-ed middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Get a little more synergy with your middle management. And perhaps look to HR to get a real picture of people's exit interviews. I think that staff wants to continue improving, but there is a gap in terms of corp goals and empowerment/execution.
