    Pros

    New executive management has the company headed in the right direction. There is a better culture than when first merged with Enterasys.

    Need to spend more money on Development and QA resources. Review system is painful.
    Too many people working from home.

    I have been working at Extreme Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Right now the company is experiencing an amazing amount of growth. Not only that, but the people in our department are the reason I keep coming back each day. Leadership all seems to be on the same page, and they're actually accessible. For a company that has quadrupled in size since I started, it has retained that smaller-company vibe. Each person has the ability to make a significant impact.

    Cons

    Small teams help minimize dead weight, but a lot is expected of those who produce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've turned this company around.
