    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I really dont have anything positive to say about NET. The company was being run very poorly

    Cons

    company was not run well. Management kept employees in the dark until the last minute

    Advice to Management

    Please be more open to employees

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Team with lots of learning. Free food and friday open drinks is definitely a perk.
    The CEO is great and my impression is that he is very progressive thinker and always treats the employees with trust, care, and respect. Can't speak for any other departments, but mine is managed very well.

    Cons

    I wish there were some additional perks that seem to be standard now in bigger companies, like free food or office snacks, and subsidized wellness items like chair massage. Those are minor quibbles though - hard for me personally to find a lot of cons about this particular job and company.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about NET/Sonus was the people. During my tenure there was excellent cross department support on all issues. The product development process was well thought out and documented and in the last few years was WEB based. During my employment I was provided with several opportunities to expand my skill set and job knowledge in several disciplines.

    Cons

    The biggest issue faced was development schedules. For whatever reason issues would come up that would cause schedule slips which in turn put pressure the downstream development activities make up for the slips.

    Pros

    Great People to work with - family atmosphere. All employees are loyal to the company and the product.

    Cons

    Difficult working environment especially when the ag. market is down. Hopefully will turn around once the price of commodities goes up.

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot while at NET and had good working relationships with realistic goals. Tool access was pretty good and expectations were reasonable.

    Cons

    Company strategy kept changing and wasn't always very clear. Teams weren't always very well organized and there were a lot of reorgs during my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Present clear goals to the employees and stick with them.

    I worked at Network Equipment Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Had a good reputation at one time

    Cons

    I worked here in the early 90's. How I wish glassdoor had been around then, to warn me off of this badly troubled company. Riddled with nepotism, greed and accounting fraud. Not even seasoned managers could save it.

    Advice to Management

    Should have sold the company a long time ago.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in an environment that was scaled for a much larger amount of business.

    Cons

    Tough for sales to get traction to convert trials and POCs to volume sales of new enterprise-oriented products. But that was the on-going theme: good trials and POC customers; little conversion at the rates needed to sustain ~$100 M sales.

    Advice to Management

    Already taken: sell the company
