    Pros

    Great place for an engineer. Lot of interesting work. The current uncertainty with potential divestiture sucks but it is expected to settle down soon. The leadership team has been bold with many changes in engineering and most have had a positive impact on quality and results. It is a strong team and definitely the best products in the industry. Hopefully the team stays intact or it would be a shame.

    Cons

    Current uncertainty. Got acquired two times and still uncertain about the future home

    Advice to Management

    On the engineering side, continue the focus on quality first.

    Pros

    Technology leaders, strong footprint in the market, consistently profitable

    Cons

    Acquired by Brocade, then divested by Broadcom when Broadcom purchased Brocade. This series of events has created a lot of internal and external confusion and dramatically lowered the internal morale. Any newcomers will be handed a large helping of integration baggage that will likely take multiple quarters to resolve/stabilize

    Pros

    At Ruckus, they value your ability to bring something new to the table. They allow you to think freely and come up with new ideas and solution to problems. It is flexible on my schedule and no micromanaging which allows me to do work on my time (most of the time) and deliver a better result. However, that's not to say there is no pressure, work is still expected to be done and on scheduled, they just don't hassle you about it. When to get it done is up to me, but it needs to be done.

    They are innovative and always on top of the latest and greatest wireless tech. Hence why they are the undisputed leader in the WiFi space today and doubt anyone will take that away anytime soon. Love the product, love the management and the opportunities to grow as a company and individual.

    Cons

    Their travel policy is not that great. Benefits could also be better. Hopefully those things will change with the merger to Brocade.

    Advice to Management

    Don't follow the normal corporate behavior. Things like putting the company name and logo first in the signature instead of the employees who should be first and before the company as they make the company should not be happening (minor, but shows the changes coming in the company). Keep things the Ruckus way. There is a reason why the company has been so successful in the last 10 years and it's not because they were working on a very corporate structure.

    Pros

    Ruckus is famous for delivering "wicked fast WiFi" to all corners of the planet. It's exciting to be part of enabling more people to have fast wifi every day - from cricket stadiums in India to schools in the US to free WiFi in NYC. That combined with being NOT politically correct is a ton of fun and very fulfilling.

    Cons

    It's a little bit of chaos, very fast paced and a lot of work. So if you're looking for a 9-5 job where you know what you'll be doing every day, all day before you get to the office it's not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the vision.
