Better focus and goal alignment is needed. Reward better your top performers

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant technologists with leading edge ideas

    Cons

    Executive leadership is learning how to lead a mid-sized company for the first time, creating company wide turmoil while trying to expand during a rapidly evolving market. Overlapping roles/responsibilities promoted poor mid level management behavior and a lack of trust and partnership across BU's, highlighted by poor execution. Executive leadership lacked an understanding about the key characteristics of a strong leader versus narcissistic manager, creating short term sales, but long term declines across the board..

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers and share holders, dramatic change is needed.....
