    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You no longer have to accomplish anything to be "successful" at this company.

    Cons

    Instead of unifying the teams, they want to compartmentalize different teams and keep them in the dark so no one is aware of what little is being accomplished. No longer a place to innovate. No longer a place to grow.

    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.
