Great company with many opportunities to grow
Systems Engineer - Southern Central Region (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CASeptember 11, 2018
Most presales engineers are teleworkers which offers many benefits and flexibility. A typical day involves working with the sales team on current opportunities or identifying new ones. Other activity involves managing existing customer relationships. I’ve learned a lot not only in the evolving DC networking space, but also the campus and service provider space. Juniper is an engineering company and the culture reflects this. The most difficult aspect of working at Juniper is understanding the broad portfolio offerings around enterprise, security, and service providers. While this can sometimes be challenging, it was also very rewarding and challenged everyone to be the best.
Pros
work from home, great technology
Cons
mastery of a broad portflio

Juniper offers a steady job environment
Director of engineering (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CASeptember 3, 2018
Juniper is a mid size organization, offering a balance between working for a large company and a startup.

Over the last few years, compensation has stagnated. At one point Juniper was one of the highest paying employers but it is no longer true.
Pros
Exciting work, new technologies
Cons
Compensation

It is a very company to work for and gain experience
Resident Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 3, 2018
you have all the resources to learn a lot of things but you are lacking time because there are always a lot of things at your plate. It is a good company to work for with great benefits but comes also with great responsibilities and expectations.
Pros
Good place to learn new technologies and lots of resources and good pay
Cons
decreasing bonus because of the sales and increase pressure

Cool but improper management
Data Scientist (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAAugust 28, 2018
My project is super cool, lots of freedom & working on cutting edge stuff. But management has no clue how to do this or what to do with it. So lots of uncertainty all the time.

Juniper Summary
Profession Services Security Engineer (Former Employee) –  San JoseJune 18, 2018
Juniper - terminated me after 11 years , 2 days after I had come back from medical leave.

I enjoyed the people . The salary was good . When it comes to fine tuning the workforce, I consider what they did pretty immoral. At the very least with 11 years of experience they could have let me look around the company for another job.

At termination, I was disconnected from company website in 15 minutes time. My laptop, Juniper's laptop was remotely turned down within the day. With 11 years of service I was terminated within 3 days after coming back from a medical leave of 6 weeks.... Not very nice!

Challenging work
Senior Commercial Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 22, 2018
Juniper pays for performance. No work/life balance. 12-14 hour days very common. Management very hands off, run your business and you will make money. Great people, really smart. CEO is trying to move company in the right direction to grow. If they could get work/life balance correct, would be one of the best places to work.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits
Cons
work/live balance
