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

    Pros

    Nice facilities
    Good Pay
    Cafeteria is nice

    Cons

    CEO and staff seem to be stuck and no way to find their way.
    Market share eroding and a bad reputation in the industry.
    HR Organization has lost all the credible employees who realized it was time to leave or the ones that actually got things done.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize the employees who believed in Juniper have now left. Clean house and stop hiring your buddies! Follow the Juniper Way

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

    Pros

    Juniper has had great performing products, a great OS, and good customer service.

    Cons

    Upper and Middle Management are out of Solutions. They are making up corny phrases, do not speak the truth, assign busy work Videos that they have purchased while attending a convention somewhere. CEO is patently dishonest when reviewing financial results with the employees. For the last two quarters, he does not seem to be able to clearly state that the gross profit has dropped year over year by 50%. Yet he talks about his dog and wants magazine covers for being "disruptive" to our business. It might be time to let him go.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the extra Upper and Middle Management who have nebulous jobs such as assigning busy work to the employees who need to be generating revenue. Spend as much time growing the business the way of 5 years ago and you are spending on your disruptive solutions .
