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

Pros

Technology clearly different (and better in specific apps) than competition
Great example of "best of breed" versus going with Juniper or Cisco
Good focus on key verticals (healthcare, education, etc.)

Cons

Lack of marketing - market does not know how good Meru technology is
Need to make WLAN compatible with all devices
No one market seems to embrace Meru (maybe focus on just education?)
Few partnerships that matter

Advice to Management

Build up an ecosystem with strong partners; will help build confidence in solution
