    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Immediate peers and workmates are good, hardworking folks. Still a lot of smart people here. This is an engineer's company. Pay is good. Depending on the team, office politics are at reasonable to low levels. R&D can crank out good product when they are not side tracked by some super secret science project.

    Cons

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    For the most part, employees at Juniper are very intelligent, competent and committed to doing the right thing. Acquisition of Mist is a very positive move to enable the company to execute on the vision. Strong compensation and benefits and company culture.

    Cons

    Like all companies, Juniper has it's challenges. At times, the company is so "engineering led" that it doesn't always do a great job of sales and marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in strategic relationships with key alliance partners.
