    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great people with good experience to learn from.
    Opportunities exist to change roles.
    Starting to make the right moves to transform the company, but still slow to evolve.

    Cons

    Extremely Sunnyvale-focused ref decision-making makes all remote locations somewhat precarious.
    All program decisions roll up to 1 single person.
    Lots of process overhead and inefficiency.
    Still very much a hardware company in a software era.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Juniper's culture is easily its strongest suit. The company has a highly collaborative and open culture with a refreshing lack of BS. People in virtually any corner of the company are always willing to help anybody with a question.

    Cons

    Juniper has many very experienced people and while it gives the company a vast pool of experience and knowledge, it can also get crowded at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker decisions; take more risks

    I have been working at Juniper Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, Always ready to help senior employees. The company is investing a lot these days on software development. There is no stopping if you want to learn anything at all in any vertical of company products. Also monthly intern full day outings. A great place to learn and innovate !

    Cons

    Honestly, i cant really think of any downsides. I feel 12 weeks of internship goes in blink of an eye, i wish it lasted longer. Even though i feel i am learning more than i ever imagined in 12 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work ! I have seen that you people are very down to earth and open for discussions.

    I worked at Juniper Networks as an intern

    Pros

    Super friendly, everyone is a big team. The company makes an effort to keep you. Cheap food, nice company outings. Great enviornment

    Cons

    Big company, hard to make an impact. Sometimes it seems that your advice might fall on deaf ears because the company is so large

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great employees, good resources to learn from, amazing products, software is by far the best in the industry. Pay isn't the best but decent.

    Cons

    Dropped multiple product lines to keep from having a complete solution. Impossible to find any information easily. Marketing is lacking for such a good position in the networking industry.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the product lines in tact. Please advertise so to make recognition easier. There are some amazing minds at juniper. Don't let them go to waste by not capitalizing on it.

    Pros

    Strong Management and technology portfolio in IP routing, Switching and Security. Very Strong reputation of having high quality products and very well liked by customers.

    Cons

    Lots of negative churn in last 5 years with products leadership and competitive offers. In the last year it looks like they have turned this around under Rami

    Advice to Management

    Refocus to become a software company and use IP assets and high quality solutions to be bell weather against larger industry move away from hardware based solutions
