    Pros

    Majority of people have highest work integrity. Great balance work and home life.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any Cons. We are really busy and sometimes life is hectic but that's mostly a good thing.

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

    Pros

    * very deep engineering talent pool
    * solid compensation
    * best-in-class sillicon, solid long-time weathered software
    * excellent culture, encouraging open challenging of ideas while keeping to a civilized tone. Easy to get help and attention, even from experienced hands
    * probably the best company in the Valley in terms of distributed infrastructure and remote work
    * very solid India team
    * good size trade-off between stuck-in-the-mud giant and no-resources-hair-on-fire startup. It's possible to make one's impact felt while not being charged with solving all the world's problems every day

    Cons

    * deep engineering culture emphasizes quality and real-working-stuff over newest fluff. This leads to a fairly slow response to many fads but new profitable directions as well
    * unless you have large amount of experience and scar tissue prepare to camp for quite a long time before you bump up the engineering ladder. However, in the meantime you'll be learning every day from the helpful, old hands
    * limited upside due to focus on technical field that is not growing fast anymore. Networking is becoming more and more "plumbing" while the services on top are the highly profitable segment for the moment

    Advice to Management

    * we could benefit from younger blood with skills in newer software development methodologies albeit obviously they are difficult to attract preferring the Web 2.0 type of shops

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

    Pros

    CEO leads company by example, high ethical and moral standards, clear vision and strategy, permeating throughout entire company.
    Employees are treated very fairly and cared for. Employee loyalty and dedication is in return very high.
    Employee intellectual capital is outstanding and diverse, of highest caliber.

    Cons

    Product centric focus is a challenge in a increasingly solution centric market. Product and sales development methodologies need to be adapted to the new market conditions.

    Some middle management forming an self serving impermeable barrier of passive resistance to company agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Work to be done by top leadership in weeding out some corporate political middle management challenges.
