Sr. Technical Support Engineer Team Lead (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – October 17, 2017
McDATA seemed to have their management team more focused on the direction they were going then Brocade did. Working for Brocade was not at all a bad experience, I just think they made some bad choices as far as who to lay off right off the bat. I wasn't one of those people but my manager was, and that was the main reason for me leaving. I followed him to VMware.
Great company about to be ripped apart into pieces
Remote Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – September 19, 2017
Company was on a fire sale when Broadcom bought out the company. Now all the IP assets are being sold off for cheap. Had several rounds of layoffs and the new companies who bought assets out of the company, took very few employees and the closing of this company was not good.

Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Maryland – July 12, 2017
Worked as a systems engineer there for less than a year. Good co-workers. The company is finalizing its acquisition by Broadcom, Inc. The IP Networking division is being sold off as separate units. The wireless/edge unit is going to Arris, the data center portion is going to Extreme Networks.
Not much else to say since the company won't be around much longer.
