    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pre IPO, Varied responsibilities, pulled a great number of employees from Nortel Networks, good salary, IPO made many mangers a lot of money and then they left

    Cons

    Internal politics, 'voluntarily work' contract which means they can fire you for no reason at all, too much overlap in responsibilities so there was on-going confusion about who did what.

    Advice to Management

    Need more stable work environment with HR being committed to all employees not just Manager they knew previously

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

    Pros

    The team I had was excellent. Very professional and was cool under pressure.

    Cons

    Management was horrible. Constantly changed vision, people from other companies were hired but didn't know what they were doing. It became a more buddy system than someone actually knowing how to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Do 360 reviews. You will find a lot of your management who "climbed" up the chain stepped on their workers backs.
