    Superb place to work

    MTS3 (Former Employee)

    ProsJuniper is one of the best place to work with great compensation package. Especially the ESOP option was excellent. It is a high growth company with a rigorous work ethic.

    ConsThere is not much downside of working at Juniper Networks. The only con is that it is tough to shift from one product to another.. the inernal transfer between depts is tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management needs to do better planning. Most of the decisions are taken by the top and sent to the other cadres. It would be better if the management get the inputs from the bottom employees before pushing for new intiatives.
