    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.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some V.P.s and Directors are best in the business, but frustrated and leave and take leadership with them.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs and shifting of executive management into positions they don't have a clue about. Business Dev - strategic decisions can take 10-12 months and still not sure when implementing. Marketing stagnant. Bonus given on a whim of directors who cater to besties. Heavy politics leading to isolation if management is questioned. Not healthy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Scuttlebutt is next layoff is in October. Get rid of mid-management and bring in leaders, not 'yes' men/women who don't have a clue and rarely come in the office. Their teams prop them up.

    Pros

    Great talented people in all functions. At ground / foot soldier level very lean operation. CEO and exec team does a great job at company meetings and all hands communicating the company vision.

    Cons

    Too much uncertainty (read layoffs) in the air every alternate quarter (for what ever reason and creates disturbance in the company culture / state).

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management heavily redundant, time to trim there and get to better definition of their roles, responsibilities and performance review. Dilutes down the vision or makes it seem un-real during execution.

    Pros

    I work at Juniper full-time in Sunnyvale, CA. It had good executives who cared about results and the company until a year ago. Leaders cared about goals of the Company and it's future.

    Cons

    In recent quarters, we've seen the highest degree of politics and this is rampant as it goes unchecked. HR is brainwashed by VP messaging "no issues" inspite of the fact that 14 people quit from a group of 36 in few months. Telecommuting is not allowed for some groups while others work only remote- there is no uniformity on rules. Juniper has become a who's who and who knows whom, type of philosophy for hiring, And they hire from Cisco mainly. The Director & VP level keep bringing in their buddies who have zero skill set or aptitude to do the work . Also some Organizations in particular, have same doers carrying the work-load, the hard -working, loyal, diligent employees and the VP's pet club gets to come in at 8am and leave at 1pm because he has a liking for certain female employee. Baking has become the criteria to be selected for conferences, visibility roles, - as in the more you bake and put at your desk, higher the chance to be chosen to take someone else's work and present at higher level. Shame on the management who does this & bigger shame to execs who see this and turn a blind eye. Ofcourse it helps that the folks preferred are good lookers in stiletto's and giggle with accents and bat eyelashes versus the ones who crank out the work. Execs give visibility to eye candy or political players and doers carry the weight and are kept buried with work

    Advice to Management

    Do a serious layoff on the un-necessary Dir & VP level folks who have no day job. Don't steal ideas, present other people's content, and act like you've created it. Fix preferential treatment & motivate your groups on merit. HR needs to look at common theme and probe the reasons folks are leaving even without other jobs in hand.
