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

Pros

Some of the smartest experienced engineers, got things done, needed minimal information. Most time left in business cases and getting projects approved. Engineers took care of detailed technical requirements

Cons

18 month process for even small software enhancements. Just too slow to do any enhancements. Take too long to partner, too long to launch products.

Advice to Management

Speed, speed, speed !!!
Have a different process for application software, core OS and routing, otherwise can not remain competitive in the market

    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.....
