Worse place i have ever worked at
Systems Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDJune 17, 2012
At Spirent i was not given any any opportunity for growth, and when i opted myself to join another team within Spirent, My manager made sure that i fail under all circumstances. At that time people in this group were being laid off since the product had failed but few hanged on to their jobs and did whatever they could against other coworkers to secure their job.
Cons
unprofessional environment

Amazing co-workers, but management is not up to speed to take advantage
Manager (Former Employee) –  Eatontown, NJOctober 4, 2017
Corporate leadership was excellent, but BU decisions are made by a small group of people who've been there since college. During most of the BU's history, a single locked-in customer guaranteed success, and leading by "feel" was sufficient. These leaders mean well, but analysis-driven strategy, once derided as "MBA business mumbo-jumbo" is a missing yet critical part of success in today's more competitive environment. There's a personality culture where, "work hard, play hard" is a mantra. But as the company struggles, the "play-hards" get promoted while the "work-hards" leave or get RIFfed.
Pros
Has attracted great, industrious engineering, marketing & product talent.
Cons
Huge class/recognition gap between the "in crowd" and the hard working "worker bees"
