    Pros

    The management team at Juniper Networks for Inside Sales allows us to focus on our jobs and not micro-manage our work days. For the most part we are able to run our territory in conjunction with our field counterparts, the way we see fit. We do not have call metrics. The management team truly understands work/life balance and will be the first to tell an employee to leave if there's an issue at home. The benefits are incredible - 3 weeks paid vacation, 3 weeks sick time, 30% 401k matching, health, dental, etc, etc. And if you're a female - 100% paid maternity leave for 16 weeks. (There is paternity leave as well but I'm not sure what the details are on it). Travel is possible for an inside sales person but not required. Upper management is accessible and seems to truly want our opinions.

    Cons

    Salaries are on the low side for high tech inside sales just outside of Boston. The upper sales management seem to allow the operations team make decisions on how we are paid based on system limitations rather than making the system work for us. And lastly - sales management can't just leave well enough alone! Every year or even every 6 months they are carving out new territories, changing the GTM strategy. It's no wonder people don't hit their quota - we need time to BUILD the territory we have....not change everything!

    Also - there is very little job advancement because no one ever leaves in other divisions of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple. Don't change compensation plans as much, don't change territory assignments as often. Stand up to upper management when something doesn't "work"

    Pros

    Some great people with good experience to learn from.
    Opportunities exist to change roles.
    Starting to make the right moves to transform the company, but still slow to evolve.

    Cons

    Extremely Sunnyvale-focused ref decision-making makes all remote locations somewhat precarious.
    All program decisions roll up to 1 single person.
    Lots of process overhead and inefficiency.
    Still very much a hardware company in a software era.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Juniper's culture is easily its strongest suit. The company has a highly collaborative and open culture with a refreshing lack of BS. People in virtually any corner of the company are always willing to help anybody with a question.

    Cons

    Juniper has many very experienced people and while it gives the company a vast pool of experience and knowledge, it can also get crowded at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker decisions; take more risks
