    Pros

    Very stable environment with positive long-term growth over the past 30 years. No one normally leaves the company for another position cause the benefits are good and company is stable.

    Cons

    BIG sized company now through all the acquisitions over the years that some folks get lost in the numbers. As noted above, no one leaves so growth opportunities are there, but limited.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing...doing great

    Pros

    Good group of very smart people. The company does care for its employees, and you can see that in the long tenure of most employees. Senior management is very deliberate in guiding the direction of the company, from development through sales. NetScout knows what it wants to be.

    Cons

    The environment is not necessarily for the entrepreneurial at heart. Although input is accepted and encouraged, the company's entire direction comes strictly from the CEO. The CEO is very smart, and has done well with the company over its history, so things are bad, just don't expect to help drive vision.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on building true management qualities in those you put in positions to lead others. If you don't build a firm foundation of people who can motivate, develop and empower those, and build leadership skills in others, you'll miss out on having a truly great company.
