    CEO leads company by example, high ethical and moral standards, clear vision and strategy, permeating throughout entire company.
    Employees are treated very fairly and cared for. Employee loyalty and dedication is in return very high.
    Employee intellectual capital is outstanding and diverse, of highest caliber.

    Product centric focus is a challenge in a increasingly solution centric market. Product and sales development methodologies need to be adapted to the new market conditions.

    Some middle management forming an self serving impermeable barrier of passive resistance to company agenda.

    Work to be done by top leadership in weeding out some corporate political middle management challenges.

    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...
