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

Pros

Juniper has a strong technical organization and culture that creates great technology and products, but not always market driven or on-time. The Juniper culture values smart technical people, however people management and skills are under-valued. Juniper's high quality products have resulted in loyal customers.

Cons

Juniper does not appreciate people skills and promotes technical strength versus business and management skill sets resulting in overall weak management and employee frustration. Juniper rarely is on the cutting edge of new products as they are internally technically and product driven, not market driven. Also, very California based company.

Advice to Management

Balance the technical culture and strengths with strong business managers who value people skills and become more market driven.
