    Pros

    A great engineering team that prides itself on innovation and quality.
    An aggressive pace and the freedom to get your job done.
    No dirty tricks - the company does a great job at being fair, honest and above board.
    Decent benefits, competitive pay and positive work environment.
    One of the most eclectic group of senior execs that surprisingly works well together.
    One of the best balance sheets in the business for a company their size and in their market
    Is very loyal to their channel partners and customers.

    Cons

    24 x 7 culture - You get emails at all hours - but at least you get responses.
    The company is likely going to be acquired because of their success, and then who knows what will happen.
    The stock is woefully under appreciated (even at a high EPS) and gets banged around by the effects of others in their market, even when the Ruckus is bucking the trend.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do best, making a Ruckus in the marketplace and defying the conventional wisdom.

    Great work environment and staff. Fast paced with the best products in the industry. Managers let you do your job and don't micro manage.

    Keep complimenting when they're earned.

    I have been working at Ruckus Wireless full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Great Staffing team to work with. Human Resources very helpful.

    None at this time, with any growing companies there are growing pains. Ruckus did a fine job of addressing many of these pain points.

    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.
