Pros

The people are smart across the board - engineering, marketing, operations, service, and management. The leadership is competent and ethical, and the Juniper Way is clearly and openly practiced. It's very hard to succeed as a jerk at Juniper - the organization doesn't tolerate abuse. The technology is amazing - this is the hottest stuff in the networking business. And the business itself is strong and growing. We don't spend our time worrying about competition - we create reasons for other companies to worry about us.

Cons

People are very serious, kind of boring at times. "Fun" at Juniper is a particularly elegant piece of code. Yikes.

Advice to Management

Don't forget how we got where we are now: the values of the Juniper Way, growing primarily organically rather than via the wrong acquisition, being engineering-driven.

    Pros

    How you achieve results ('The Juniper Way') is considered at least as important as the results that are achieved. Juniper is also focused on developing high performance products with an environmentally sound footprint that gives customers a lot more long term value add than lesser offerings. This generates healthy margins, satisfied customers, and gives development engineers a very stimulating work environment.
    The people that work here across the regions are also consistently top notch and genuinely care about helping each other to succeed.

    Cons

    There are still some 'entrepreuneurial' business practices being followed within business units that should have matured and migrated to a more controlled and consistent way of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    Drive for more consistent working practices across the various product groups, then work on improving that baseline across the board.


  2. "No complaints whatsoever!"

    Pros

    Working alongside friendly, intelligent, motivated folks who are passionate about what they do. Very competitive compensation and benefit programs. Tremendous opportunity for growth and development. And most importantly, it's fun.

    Cons

    There are really no downsides that I can speak of to working at Juniper. There have naturally been some growing pains as we have transitioned from a smaller niche start up to a true global player in the technology space. But that's part of what makes Juniper such a fun company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember to keep in mind what made this company successful to begin with. The collaborative spirit, the high caliber of employees, the encouragement to take risks, and the overall goal of making Juniper a fun and rewarding place to work.
