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

Pros

Juniper as a whole has a pretty decent reputation, and lots of engineers who enjoy their work and their technologies. Very engineer-centric, which is good if you're an IC...

Cons

...and bad if you're a manager responsible for budget, schedule and features but with no control over the technical decisions that make or break those commitments (which are in the hands of the engineers).

Advice to Management

The separation of technical and management decision-making, in at least some BUs, has become a significant impediment to delivering product. And "one big JUNOS" has, I fear, given everyone the power to say NO to an idea, when no one has the power to say YES.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was considered as a great technology company once upon a time !

    Cons

    -Lacks diversity with respect to employee's demographic backgrounds. Does not give any impression of working with true multinational company.
    -Constantly failing on execution since last few years.
    -No clear road map for long term. Projects are started and shelved in the middle.
    -Product quality degrading over period of time.
    -Lot of attrition and employees seems to be doubtful about their future.
    -Lots of promotions without evaluating people on the criterion defined. Looks like management is desperate to retain employees.
    -Lacks mix of experienced and junior/fresh grads in engineering teams.
    -Company does not believe in investing on fresh grads.

    Advice to Management

    Identify genuine talent and do not give false promises to retain them.
    Control the rate of promotions. Not everyone deserves to be DE. Stop time-bound promotion scheme.
    Focus on long term road map and execution strategy and don't change it too often.
    Hire fresh grads to create right mix in the team.
