Overall good experince

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)

ProsYou get to work in a place where you are able to do home office and manage your own time in order to bring results, so teleworking, videoconferencing, and high use of online collaborative tools is a must. As an engineer you will work with the latest technology in the networking industry, and will be involved with high profile customers.

ConsAs it continues to grow, it's becoming more and more bureaucratic. There are many processes in place to do almost every activity, and there's also an excess of surveys or polls to measure many of the aspects of work which is needed but when every area does this many times you spend a lot of your day just answering surveys. Lately, at the end of each FY there were major global restructurings which included layoffs, change in strategies, elimination of products/business units

Advice to Senior ManagementLower the amount of processes to allow for agile business doing or put tools and resources in place to off load this from field people. Monitor the dates and regularity of feedback in different areas to limit surveys and polls from many sources at one period of time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
