I have been working at Meru Networks full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Sales management provides easy access to internal resources that normally is difficult to get to if you are a field rep, not sure how other managers are in other departments, however. Its a relatively small company (~$100m annually), but with huge ambitions. Executive staff was brought in to grow this company 10x. The technology is great. Coming from an engineering background, I can say that Meru's technology differences are leaps and bounds above other companies in the Wi-Fi space.

Cons

Extremely process oriented for sales. Best of Breed technology often is overlooked for companies with offerings that include non wifi equipment. Although the technology is truly beneficial and superior than everyone else in the market, the marketing and brand awareness still seems to lack. Customers are "aware" of Meru, but not aware of their technology and how it solves problems that IT administrators usually brush off.

Advice to Management

For sales management, trust the reps you hired. For channel and engineering managment, listen to your field reps and really appreciate the input they have to offer.

    Pros

    Small Start Up Environment in a the Hot Wi-Fi Industry

    Cons

    Terrible Management! Lots of infighting, and political issues. HR is too worried about loosing there job to get involved in any employee issues, hence lots of Employee Turn-over! Customer Support and Product Issues. Lack of Business Development/Marketing and Lack of Product Development have created Meru's inability to really complete in the competitive wireless industry.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to stop worrying about just their stock price and focus on the basics of running a company. The significant customer support issues will catch up with them eventually.
