    very good health insurance, some 401(k) match

    Cons

    no career opportunities for regular engineers
    tech-stack and dev practices heavily lacking behind the state-of-the-art
    high politics, slow motion
    lack of accountability
    people are not very motivated
    compensation: salaries below market average

    Advice to Management

    happy employees are much more productive. Your employees do not feel like anybody cares about them.

    I have been working at NETSCOUT full-time

    Pros

    Fellow employees, pay, commute, work life balance, overall atmosphere, cheap cafeteria

    Cons

    I feel as though management, particularly at the executive level, could use to get more involved in the employees in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Come down from the top of the org and spend some time with those in your part of the company

    Pros

    Netscout management is ethical and has good moral values. The medical and dental benefits are excellent. Generous vacation plans. Good products.

    Cons

    Egotistical CEO that tends to micro manage every part of the business. CEO has no experience running a company the size Netscout has become after acquisitions. Spotty record with acquisition success. Unrealistic sales growth expectations.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should step down and become CTO and delegate management to a team experienced with running a billion dollar company.
