I have been working at Spirent Communications full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Could be a great environment depending on your manager & team
Casual atmosphere
Flexible schedule
Training or resources for improving skillset are available if you ask for them
Opportunities to work on more challenging projects if you can make the business case for them

Cons

Compensation & benefits are on the low end of tech jobs in Silicon Valley
Internal politics & big egos
Old school way of thinking & executing solutions
Undefined career ladder - you will need to be able to negotiate and advocate for yourself. This might be true of most companies, however.
Too many silos

Advice to Management

Leave your ego at the door. Be a leader, not a "boss"
Stop using antiquated metrics
Use a more rigorous process for vetting candidates. Bad hires can cost a lot of time, money & resources and worst of all, lower employee morale.
