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.....

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Visonary leadership, balanced work/life schedule, open communication

    Cons

    People are promoted to senior management positions and then move to individual contributors without losing their title or pay level. Creates a top-heavy organization.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain focus on innovation. You've lost your edge on software quality.
