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

    Pros

    There are lots of excellent and experienced engineers from whom you can learn a lot. The task for intern is very flexible, some challenge, some easy.

    Cons

    Sometimes, assignment is not clear enough. Some human resource and time is wasted due to responsibility overlap of different teams. The mechanism of sharing resource needs some improvement between different offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of communication between different team, seems the management need to be improved to enhance the work efficiency.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good technology, good compensation, many opportunities to do interesting work, many excellent people.

    Cons

    Company has had "growing pains" for 5 years--now they are "shrinking pains"--but the pain is the same. Very complex, confusing, decentralized environment. Multiple groups doing the same thing, starting competing initiatives and projects. Extremely inefficient and crazy-making. We had three re-orgs in a year! They hired directors and VPs like crazy last 2 years, now had a big layoff because "too many directors and VPs."
    The management has gone from being overoptimistic to hyper-pessimistic, but still cannot seem to set a direction for the company, and is constantly reacting to the latest news on Wall Street. Whatever Cisco did 2 years ago, Juniper will do today--whether it worked or not. Current fad is to outsource every function possible, even when the cost saving is small and disruption huge.
    The Finance group literally cannot tell other groups what their budgets are. Weak IT department hinders everything, is well known to be a problem internally. It's embarrassing to work for a networking company that cannot manage to keep its videoconference equipment working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't outsource everything and expect to maintain quality. Stop doing things just because Cisco does them. Wasn't Juniper founded to do it better than Cisco? And if you keep hiring people from failing companies, guess what you'll get--more failures.
