Hard core but great technology!
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 29, 2016
Fast pace, and an almost "Boiler Room" mentality when it comes to sales execution. Not sure what the acquisition by HP will bring - ultimately the product will likely continue to be superb.

Great if you work at corporate, avoid like the plague if your in the field
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 31, 2015
One glance through the reviews on most sites and you'll quickly pick up on the culture of this company - if you work at corporate it sounds great. The problem is the corporate office has the attitude like the field sales is there to support them, rather than the other way around. If you're considering a field role here, I wouldn't touch this company. The mid level and most of the upper management were promoted internally as the company grew and came here because they couldn't hack it at places like Cisco. What you have now are a lot of first time managers that feel like they built the company so it's there way or no way. A lot of the current job openings are the result of departures or the back stab that happened when they were sold to HP - who cares about the partnerships and relationships with Dell, Juniper, Brocade and Alcatel-Lucent. If your buddies with management than it's all good and you'll probably do just fine, otherwise your just another tool to help them get further along. Cheapest company I've ever worked for when it comes to travel and any type of marketing material or resources. They would rather spend the money on free massages for employees at corporate.

Work life balance is significantly tilted towards work.

Basically, whatever they tell you about this company in any interview - go 180 degrees away from that and you'll have how it really is.

Approach the CEO or any of the managers (if you actually could because they all have an entitlement attitude) and see how they are as people. Biggest set of me first people I've ever met anywhere ever.
Pros
Great product
Cons
Work life balance, cheapest company I've ever worked for

Great products but terrible executive management team
Director of Finance, FP&A, WW Sales and Operations (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CADecember 22, 2014
It is sad that a company with such a great potential is constantly immeged it STOP-GO-STOP, due to lack of mid term planning capacity from their executives. Revenue is growing 30%+ per year, but they are unable to stop the expenses leak, because the sales organization is way too expensive. As a concequence the ended up sutting a large portion of the G&A team. great way to go!
Pros
products and technology

short term bound

TECHNICAL PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJuly 29, 2014
A typical day for me at Aruba Networks as a project manager would include reporting to the customer to learn the latest updates to the project. Interfacing with stakeholders, attending meetings and updating records on the project’s progress were frequent activities during most days. Coordinating the activities of the resident engineer also took up a portion of each day. Other activities that would happen on a more weekly basis included reporting to the customer’s deputy CIO with project updates and assisting the resident engineer with some device configuration.
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
not much interaction with central office

Corporate Events Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJanuary 20, 2014
I have worked at this company for over ten years. My experience there has been amazing. The environment is extremely hard-working, but at the same time, I have a great time with my co-workers. Everyone is very team oriented, and are always willing to help each other. The best part of my job is that fact that I've been there for so long. I feel like it's more of a family to me, and I enjoy going to work. At the same time, I would like to get experience elsewhere. I don't want to be in a position where I am so comfortable that it is no longer a challenge for me.

Its a Hire & Fire Company
Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee) –  Sunnvale, CASeptember 10, 2013
Its a good pay master. But makes you work like hell. Even on week ends some times.

Calibration program in performance evaluation is creating problems are employees are becoming insecure. This is restricting knowledge transfers in the team.
