    Pros

    strong products, technical innovation, interesting work, good compensation, strong leadership, good benefits,

    Cons

    not good at dealing with small remote sites, most opportunities are at head office and larger development sites, inflexible human resources policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to make it easier for managers to get their job done, too much overhead and too many processes, and cut loose directors and VPs screw up if there isn't another job for them

    I worked at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Juniper 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    I worked at Juniper Networks as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They value their intern program. Great perks including field trips, weekly intern meetings, and general appreciation

    Cons

    The work is busy work that employers don't have time for. To be expected, but still busy work for the interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some interesting projects for interns to work with. That is more important than the environment time wise. Other than that great job!
