    -friendly environment. good work like balance. good benefits. Health care benefits better than other companies. good work-home balance

    Cons

    -the review process not well implemented to be honest. Some office politics that goes around and can get in the way of work.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be that they need to improve the review process, get more feedback from the employees and give more opportunities to grow.

    Pros

    Some parts of the company operate with great autonomy and allow people to work it out.

    Cons

    Largely weak management with a couple bright spots. Conflict adverse CEO, now ousted by the Private Equity group, missed his opportunity to sell this thing at a premium of $33/share a few years ago (instead of the ~$11 he got). He read his own press clippings and if there's a God will never visit such weakness on another organization.

    Advice to Management

    You have two keepers in the upper ranks. Shoot all the rest and start over.

    Pros

    Technology and solutions that customers wanted. Some of the staff were professional and enjoyed working with them. Good smart engineers

    Cons

    Poor management, no vision and only interested in lining their own pockets. Pathetic group that was more like an old boys club. Engineering controlled strategy and that is not a good strategy for growth.

    Advice to Management

    employees are your asset not liability. Focus on investing in marketing and getting visibility for the company. Understand the market first before deciding on strategy and don't let engineering drive strategy.

    Pros

    Fully paid health insurance
    good product

    Cons

    Working environment hostile. Poor to no communication of expectations.

    Advice to Management

    None. I think the problem in my case was at the edge with little visibility centrally.

    I worked at Procera Networks full-time

    Pros

    Procera has some very sharp people and overall a good work environment.

    Cons

    Not a great place for Sales People. If you question tactics, pricing or negotiations you will be cut out of a deal. You'll spend months cultivating relationships and win a deal only to be asked to "step aside" when it comes time to finalize the deal. The word "team player" doesn't exist here except as it pertains to management lining their own pockets for a quick $ and disregarding all your hard work, time and your exit. Turnover in sales is a problem……i was warned about this place by a headhunter regarding the turnover and that person was 100% correct. Management level is clueless in Major Account and relationship building and is more interested in a quick win as opposed to a "year-on-year" growth, expansion and a profitable account.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your Sales Leadership! You come to them with a problem brought to you by a customer and the response is "what do you want me to do about it?"
