    Former Employee - Project Manager in Broomfield, CO (US)

    I worked at Brocade Communications full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are workout facilities at each site and they offer yoga, kick boxing and additional classes, which helps get a person away from their desk and find time to relieve stress.

    Cons

    The work life balance is said to be a big priority but there have been reduction in force that workloads have increased and taking time off is not a reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start allowing people to sell back their PTO since they are under too much pressure to get their tasks completed they can't afford to take time off and they end up capping out on PTO.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
