    Pros

    it was good environment, good people. I like my team, and the flexibility of my job was a winner for me. As long as I got the job done, there was no pressure from the management.

    Cons

    felt like stuck at what I was doing, not much to improve on as much as career opportunity. Everything was stagnant.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My colleagues were incredible, as was my manager. The work was interesting and the compensation was above average. PTO is unlimited, benefits fantastic.

    Cons

    There are a million layers of management, it's unbelievable. Your job is not guaranteed; I lost mine in a layoff after 11.5 years of dedication and loyalty. The product is falling apart now and people are leaving in droves, but I suspect the product is not high on the radar anymore for management. There is a clear priority in India; the company has placed emphasis on hiring cheap vs hiring quality. Two laborers in India for the cost of one US-based employee. One in particular we even said "Do not hire," and they hired him anyway at a low pay position. He is the only person they kept post-layoff.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, everyone is leaving. I'm not sure what you can do at this point. Many people were so loyal to you, and you didn't even try to restructure them into other roles. The severance was sub-par and the layoff was handled gracelessly. The manager wouldn't even look my colleague in the eyes or shake his hand and he was an incredible employee.

    Pros

    Supportive and Fun Loving place where you get to work along with talented people.

    Cons

    Company tends to be consensus driven which at times slows down decision making process.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the off-shoring model as too much off-shoring may not be in the best interest in the long run.

    Pros

    Good compensation, on site gym with personal trainers

    Cons

    Major turnover, 4 new bosses per year. No work/life balance whatsoever. No engineering accountability at all. Engineering bias company that overruns all other organizations

    Advice to Management

    Implement checks and balances for development. Hold engineering accountable for work they throw over the wall and leave the rest of the company having to clean up the mess

    Pros

    The subsidized cafeteria food.

    Large company translates to more lateral movement and work-from-home options.

    Possible to make above average income in entry-level positions.

    Cons

    Impenetrable social cliques who cast judgement immediately that will be a permanent stain on your identity.

    Most hiring and firing is blissfully random.

    Passive aggressive management, lack of transparency, lack of respect for contractors.

    Promises made during the interviews that were not kept.

    The goalposts move frequently and the strategy is in constant flux.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Learn about the job that the employees you claim to "manage" do.

    Keep promises.
