    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
