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

    Pros

    Great compensation, one of the highest in the silicon valley. Cafeteria food is good, and the buildings are relatively new and nice to work in.

    Cons

    The stock price has dat between $20-28 for the last few years except for an occasional hiccup.

    Long hours required, multiple conf calls with bangalore per week meaning early mornings or late nights. No remote work policy, not even once a week. Nobody goes here to innovate...

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

    Pros

    Being with the company for over 10 years, the foundation of the company had followed their code of conduct.

    Cons

    Loyalty equates to zero return from Juniper. Unstable product leadership. Execution has been limited at best. Leadership has become a musical chairs.

    Advice to Management

    Change your mentality from an engineering company to a sales driven company. Do not become a Motorola, Lucent or Nortel.

    Hiring leadership that have a proven poor track record both professionally and personally creates a toxic environment.
