    Pros

    Innovative technology in switching and routing. Junos is really the best CLI ever! People are really smart and hard workers. Management is good with a very low PHB ratio.

    Cons

    Sometimes disorganized. Juniper likes to waste opportunity. Security products not a focus anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your security products!

    Pros

    Love their culture. Two key phrases used daily is Management is authentic and approachable.

    Cons

    As most companies once a year need to clean house and make some very difficult decisions on who to let go. It has been my experience that most of the loses were positions that were found to be duplicated or given to folks looking for a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your good work. The company is strong and is only getting better.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time

    Pros

    Juniper has friendly work environment (back then, don't know about how).
    Promotion is generally fair between 2005 to 2010. After that, gets political.
    Technology is great.

    Cons

    Innovation is not as fast as competitors. Product road map is rather slow. ASIC team is not strong enough.

    Advice to Management

    Hire right person for job. Since 2017, hiring friends and ex-coworkers are becoming common. It is very frustrating and wasting time to go thru interview process if hiring goes to friends and internal candidates.
    Create more test eng jobs at Sunnyvale.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time

    Pros

    - Very nimble.
    - Fast turnaround cycles in both engineering and in operations.
    - Compensation package is well above the market and so employee satisfaction on that front is very high.

    Cons

    - Juniper closely follows Cisco in terms of market outlook (quarterly results, future projections) and company performance (layoffs).
    - Lack of UI and UX talent, which is irritating to employees and crippling the company in the marketplace.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are top notch. The environment is relaxed and comfortable. The managers I worked for were some of the best I've ever had.

    Cons

    I worked in the support department and I don't feel that management consulted the people doing the job before making decisions that impacted their day to day work. Changes to the ticketing system and lab made difficult support work near impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees working in the jobs before making decisions that impact their work.
