    4. Friendly environment. You can approach Kumar, Kelly & Apurva anytime you want! They're very frank and down to earth to approach.
    5. Nice office place

    I joined Versa less than an year ago. Intially, I did get spooked by the reviews on Glassdoor. I still joined Versa. Now, several months down the line, I'm glad that I made the right decision and joined Versa. Believe me, reviews don't tell you the true story always. The product is going excellent and so is the company!

    Cons

    1. Health plan is costly for a family.
    2. Now that the team is growing there should be a proper HR personnel
    3. No free daily lunch, just Tuesday & Friday

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! Keep up the good spirit and momentum!

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

    Pros

    - If an individual is good and interested, he/she can contribute and learn many things(got opportunity to work on many things in this company compared to any previous work places)
    - one of the best SDWAN and NFV solution available in market(Customers told this info who evaluated other vendors)
    - Founders are excellent in both technical and managing company.
    - one of the best engineering team. Any new complicated feature would be implemented, tested and delivered in couple days. Any bug would(no matter how complex is bug) would be fixed in hours.
    - very comprehensive solution with SDWAN, Analytics, Orchestrator, uCPE and SD-Security. No other vendor has such solution in the market.
    - Flat hierarchy. Everybody codes including director of engineering.

    Finally, if someone wants to contribute and learn SDWAN, SD-Security, vCPE, virtualization etc, this is one of the good place. If some one who runs away from work and does not take responsibility, it will be tough place.

    Cons

    Personally, I have not come across any cons in my last 2 years. Of course there is no work place in this world where all the employees are super happy about employer.
    Before joining this company, I was worried after looking to negative comments in glassdoor but my friend who was already working in versa assured me they are not true. I agree with him after working for 2 years, most of the negative comments are not true.
