I am a Sr IT PM, Scrum Master, Financial Analyst, have a Masters in Project Management, and 10 years of experience working as a consultant to the government within the IT healthcare industry. I am so bored with this work. I’m in school for Astrobiology and considering also getting a Designing and Building AI Products and Services certification from MIT xPro because I believe AI is the future and one of the more exciting areas to work in. Considering this, where might I look for roles?

People actually care about their jobs and push to do their very best. Collaboration is real but doesn't slow down progress
Global company but still striving for global consistency in processes.

Technology - Extreme really does have a solid wired and wireless offering that competes well in the market. The pre-sales engineering folks are great to work with. If you hit your number you will make good money. I did.
Leadership - especially on the sales side. It's either non-existent, stoic and calculating, or passive-aggressive. (This was my experience.) Extreme is also a bit on the low-side when it comes to total compensation. Based on my research, Cisco, Juniper, Arista and HPE offer more in terms of total OTE. Even though Extreme does have decent technology, no one seems to know it. They are a small fraction of the entire networking market. I have even spoken to customers who have never heard of them. (And they've been in business since the 1990s.) Market awareness is sorely lacking. Turnover is a huge problem. I was on a team of 16 people, and at one year and six months, I was the 3rd-longest tenured person on the team. Not good. Thus, territories and quotas change more than the weather.

Most everyone not in management are good people.
Most of the management runs the sales team like a sweatshop. They manage by fear and play favorites.
- 5.0Oct 26, 2023EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 3 years
Employees who care about the company, the quality of the products and the organizations that use them.
Working remotely does not allow opportunities to meet peers face to face.
- 2.0Nov 16, 2023Anonymous EmployeeFormer Employee, more than 8 years
Upper management clueless about what employees responsibilities are and what it takes to do the job.
Favoritism not based on job performance.

Helpful colleagues, exciting work and good environment
No work life balance in some teams and no stocks

The technology works… kind of. The people in my territory and team are great and we support each other.
If you come here thinking you’ll be involved in sales, think again and think real hard about it. You will be more of an administrative therapist than anything. The work/life balance is a complete joke. There’s talk everywhere about how we have “amazing culture” but if someone reaches out at 11pm I’m expected to hop on and deliver what I’m asked right away. I spend more time doing reports and managing internal issues than I do actual sales. When I bring this up to my manager, they ask to involve them, but nothing can really be done because our internal processes are so broken. That applies with our products as well as our internal politics. It leaves very little time to be proactive. The emphasis this year at the company is net-new business, as it should be with any company. But we can’t actively engage in going after new business with the way things are. The way we license and service products doesn’t support a company that wants to be a software company. Nevermind if you can actually book a deal without there being at least one issue with a license or service. There’s so much internal infighting so don’t expect to solve issues quickly. On top of all this, we get emails from VP levels of management essentially saying none of us know how to do our jobs and we all should be replaced. They could replace every single one of us and the same issues would arise because they refuse to listen and fix internal issues. I would counter that our management doesn’t know how to do their jobs. I’ve hit my number every year I’ve been here, but every day is like walking on eggshells. When something with an opportunity changes or goes wrong, you then will have to update 15 different people on it individually. From your manager, director, sales ops, vp, team members - It’s exasperating. So think real hard if you want to be in an environment like this.2
