    Pros

    Juniper Networks is a good company that really looks out for the employee

    Cons

    I tend to spend too much time here in the office

    Advice to Management

    some management needs to really go forward and take educational classes on how to speak with and really utilize their support staff, not just for faxing stuff.

    Pros

    The people are smart across the board - engineering, marketing, operations, service, and management. The leadership is competent and ethical, and the Juniper Way is clearly and openly practiced. It's very hard to succeed as a jerk at Juniper - the organization doesn't tolerate abuse. The technology is amazing - this is the hottest stuff in the networking business. And the business itself is strong and growing. We don't spend our time worrying about competition - we create reasons for other companies to worry about us.

    Cons

    People are very serious, kind of boring at times. "Fun" at Juniper is a particularly elegant piece of code. Yikes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget how we got where we are now: the values of the Juniper Way, growing primarily organically rather than via the wrong acquisition, being engineering-driven.

    Pros

    Unlike many high tech companies in Silicon Valley (and I've worked for many of them) Juniper realizes that constant fire drills and chaining people to their laptops 24/7 = job and employee burnout. Juniper is a company that really seems to understand the concept of work/life balance. I'm sorry. I know that sounds very cliche, but it has actually been my experience in the 2+ years I have worked for this company. Also, the people of Juniper are just really nice to be around.

    Cons

    For all the ballyhoo made regarding the lofty goals and aspirations of the company, the corporate strategy remains a moving target. I just don't think that senior management (which has seen numerous changes) knows what they really want Juniper to be as a company or how they're actually going to get there. You just want to shake leadership by the throat and scream, "Make up your mind, figure it out and stick to it!" This is a company with great potential. It just needs clearer, more consistant leadership and direction.

    Advice to Management

    I taught scuba diving for many years. In the words of a dive instructor, to capsulize my thoughts above, I'd say "Plan your dive - then dive your plan." Stop changing your minds, pick a direction, plan how to get there and then execute on the plan. I am hoping Kevin Johnson can do this. But it's a little too soon to tell at this point.

    Pros

    A great company with great products and great quality. Wonderfully managed specially in its largest group IPG. Good processes that leads to a very good quality of products as compared to its competitors. The processes are easy and systematic. The products quality is one of the best.
    The HR is very helpful and very supportive to its employees. A lot of times goes out of its way to help... Most of the departments at Juniper are simply great...

    Cons

    Some of its acquisitions have not been very well managed. and have taken a lot of time to streamline. If you are working in one of those BUs which were originally acquired, be careful. They are improving but are slow, and the good processes have not been implemented yet there which leads to less revenue and less quality of products in those ares. They are still better than many of its competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Try to decrease the communications gap between top management and the individual contributors.

    Pros

    Environment offers growth opportunities. The marketing and product teams had great input on company and product direction. My management team was very open to mentoring junior staff to be promoted.

    Cons

    The company moves at a slow pace at time and at times waits too long for the market instead of taking initiative and trying to be innovative product wise. Integration wise, a better job can also be done to integrate the recent product acquisitions. The product portfolio is comparable to our main rival yet we lack in full integration.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a more agile and market leader stance. Our main competitor is famous for taking and defining new technology market spaces. To overtake out competition I feel Juniper needs to take a more aggressive stance at adopting new technologies.
