    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were good with moderate cost.

    Cons

    Upper management lost focus somewhere along the line. They became self important and had disregard for the organization and it's culture. After dropping the ball many have left for other opportunities to pat each other's backs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the custo.er facing teams or you can sell the HW on eBay and outsource support to people who don't care.

    Pros

    Have stated values so employees/manager know what they are and can discuss them during a 1:1 conversation.

    Cons

    I sometimes wondered if the values match want the company is trying to create within their culture.

    Advice to Management

    Probably need to speak to these values during times of not meeting company objectives

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, world class company. Strong support for community values. Sunnyvale HQ has good buildings, in-house cafes, fitness center. Older product line is solid and dependable.

    Cons

    Chaotic management structure, lip service but no real support for innovation, fragmented teams. It takes a ridiculous amount of time to change anything or institute new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate. You have multiple teams doing the same thing. Incredibly wasteful. Play to your strengths and stop going after the shiniest new toy.

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

    Pros

    Good engineering teams and decent pay + benefits
    Committed engineering teams willing to help and contribute further
    Good customers base despite the fact many of them are legacy

    Cons

    Confusing strategy, lack of PLM leadership, directionless product team keep churning engineering with start sand stop's. Clueless about market and customers. H2 strategy is only about slides and nice talk.
    No attention to ethics: despite official company instructions prohibiting internal dating and sexual relationships, everyone knows this is true for most employees but not for some executives. Some internal promotions for women are likely to be based on that sort of relationship. Juniper execs need to watch theirselves before instructing their employees

    Advice to Management

    Please do what say and say what you do.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When people open the doors for you, greet you "Good morning", wait for you to get in to the elevator, then definitely you are in a good working place. The best thing about Juniper is not just about compensation and benefits, but the people itself.

    Cons

    Juniper is not transparent when it comes to lay offs.
