Superb place to work

MTS3 (Former Employee)

I worked at Juniper Networks

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.

6 years of bliss - 4 years of constant churn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Juniper Networks part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people, benefits, company values, room for advancement in certain area's

Consno room for advancement in my partuclar area, senior management

Advice to Senior Managementwhen you "cleaned house" on the employees, you forgot to clean up the upper management. When a company evangelizes their core values like trust and respect, they need to live it and breathe it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
