    Pros

    Juniper probably still among the best places to work if you get into a good project. Depending on the project you have a good work/life balance and most people are really smart and know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant in workplace. People are judged(and rewarded) by the coolness of the project they are in. if you are in a unsexy project, you have limited growth. Same people keep hopping the next cool project in the company and no accountability for the failed projects because of this. Too many acquisitions have gone down the drain. They simply don't know how to make the acquisitions work.

    Advice to Management

    People should be rewarded based on their efforts and smarts not the coolness of the project they are in. Retaining your talent drain should be a higher priority than what it is now.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Internal tools are pretty good. There are lots of information for collaboration. The campus is pretty convenient for public transportation. Free VTA passes for employee. Overall total compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Upper management can seem paralyzed when decisions are need to be made. Decisions to continue or stop investing in projects are not made early enough. This hurts not only the financials but also the morale of people who poured their heart and soul into these projects.

    Advice to Management

    Take the chance and make the decision. Sitting on the fence will cause you to lose time and opportunities.
