    Pros

    Hyper oriented to employee care; fabulous communication; agile and innovative; the least political environment I've ever worked in; meritocracy

    Cons

    with all the companies merged in the past couple of years it is a little crazy sometimes; a little less flexible about expense policies than others (e.g. - long distance travel, home internet and cell phone policies are to rigid)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the incredible work!

    Pros

    The corporate culture at Extreme is what really stands out to me. They really empower you to do your job. The transparency within the company is actually there, not just words. Ed (our CEO) actually leads by example, not a do as I say, not as I do type of leader. Notice that I said leader, not boss. Everyone in the organization is a leader, no matter where you are on the org chart.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is pretty good, but I would like to see more vacation/personal days to make that balance a bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the high quality people that you have been.

    Pros

    Great engagement from executives. Welcoming culture. True customer first attitude. Finally, a company that truly values support as a competitive differentiator (100% insourced!). Benefits are competitive and improving.

    Cons

    This is a company that has made several acquisitions and grown a lot in a short time. Not a con, but be prepared to deal with ambiguity and rapid process change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work aggressively to integrate the companies and roadmaps. Continue to value support.

    Pros

    I've only been with Extreme a short time but I feel as comfortable as if I've been here for years. Since day one and my initial interview even, I felt that Extreme could be the place for me. Well that feeling remains and I look forward to many years to come! Perhaps my last job? Who knows?
    The people I interact with on a daily basis are more focused on quality than quantity. There is no panic surrounding my day to day life here and everyone is very friendly. I actually left a much larger, mainstream company to join Extreme and am so glad I did!

    Cons

    As there processes improve, I hope that they remain simple and smooth and add more fun functions.

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Great culture, work/life balance, a collective of hardworking, knowledgable and accountable employees. After many years of leadership instability, we finally have a strong, committed and loyal executive leadership team that are in it for the long haul (3 years now and running).

    Cons

    Not a con but just reality. The kind of growth we've been experiencing in such a short window is double-edged. Exciting for our future but not without some internal growing pains. Good news is that everyone is focused on ensuring customers and partners don't feel any pain and their Extreme experience is actually improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum!
