    I have been working at Sonus Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance.
    Smart driven employees.
    Relaxed but focused culture.
    Seems to be trending upwards and becoming the global leader in the industry.

    Cons

    No inspiring incentives to help create a more motivated atmosphere.
    Have no idea how to explain what the company does to other people.
    Dull (but still good) corporate atmosphere unlike other companies in the business

    Advice to Management

    Introduce incentives, like the option to work from home once a week or raffles for Red Sox/Celtics tickets, or something of that nature, to reward the hard working employees; which makes people enjoy working at Sonus and they'll work even harder.

    I worked at Sonus Networks full-time

    Pros

    Great technology with a solid customer base in the carrier market

    Cons

    Company lacks direction with no clear path to success for market expansion

    Advice to Management

    Do what Sonus does best and stick with it, don't try to make the company into something that it is not.

    I have been working at Sonus Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility- most employees work from home at least once per week and many work from home much more than that. Managers allow for doctors appointments or attending an event without much concern. As long as the work gets done, when and where it gets done is not an issue.

    Cons

    At times the direction or a 1-2 year plan is not clear

    Advice to Management

    Be present- manage by walking around and talking to us. We want to see and talk to the executives.
