I had a good run here

The job is great as far as benefits and compensation go. I made a lot of lifelong friends at Juniper, as well. However, there is a lot of job displacement to India and it is clear in the last 5 years that cheap labor is priority over quality. US hires are rare, and if US employees leave the company, they are replaced by headcount in India. Most recently, there was a layoff which only affected US Employees. Many people are leaving the company willingly now, and many people are unfortunately unhappy with upper management. I will miss Juniper, but it is being terribly mismanaged, unfortunately.


Awesome pay, great benefits, nice bonus plan


Poor work/life balance, cheap labor preferred to quality labor

compensation is great; but lots of hours necessary

The compensation at Juniper is one of the highest in the Silicon Valley...but for me it was long hours, including spotty hours on weekends. Also, during weekdays, I had to rotate every week with being on conference calls with Bangalore which were early in the morning PST or late at night PST...every week.
