Hire and fire

I have never worked in a company where it is as easy to be fired as here. This place is hire and fire. Do you agree? I know people who got fired for the smallest things.

A sinking ship 4/15/2020

4/15/20 Quarterly results are missed quarter after quarter, so regardless of the virus, Extreme was going to miss targets/expectations anyway. There’s always an excuse. Tariffs, supply chain, mergers, growing pains etc. (4/15 11:30am- day... —  read more 

Long-term strategy

Is there such a thing at Extreme Networks? I think it's becoming rather obvious that this leadership has no idea what that means. All they are capable of doing is "fix" ongoing problems with temporary solutions (such as RIFs) and let the underlying... —  read more 

Are there jobs out there?

I see people who used to work here visit this forum so I figured I might ask. If you were laid off, how hard was it to find a new job? Especially if it happened this year. I'm really worried considering the current economic situation. I don't think... —  read more 


Ed Meyercord has missed quarter after quarter. By company standards, he should have been hit in the last reduction. CEO, Chief Excuse Officer.

Extreme Networks Leadership

Extreme Networks Leadership Has no clue how to operate a business appropriately. With all the acquisitions they still do not understand how to conduct effective business strategies. They like to hype themselves up but their R&D is horrid. They are... —  read more 


Not sure what you mean by sketchy practices, but I agree that it's a flimsy base and they keep mortgaging future quarter]s business to meet current revenue targets. It's like kiting checks or operating a ponzi scheme. Eventually, the whole thing... —  read more

House of Cards

Extreme is built on a house of cards that will soon come tumbling down. Sketchy practices designed to inflate revenues will soon expose a fundamentally weak financial picture of stagnant growth and poor sales execution. The recent, sudden departure... —  read more 


Watching this trainwreck from outside. I was so disappointed when Extreme didn't bring me over with the Avaya acquisition, but from what I hear from friends that did make the transition, I'm grateful. By all accounts, this place is in "Extreme"... —  read more

Can someone explain to me the near singular focus on margins? Because I think it's a losing strategy in the near term. It's completely putting the cart before the horse. As the number #3 player, we should be focused on growing MARKET SHARE! Grow... —  read more

Up to 100 laid off

Found this while trying to determine just how big the layoffs were. It's far from precise, but I guess it's the best we'll get for now. "Extreme Networks is laying off between 25 and 99 employees at its Salem location at 9 Northeastern Blvd."... —  read more 

Panic in the Streets

So the euphoria over the Avaya acquisition is coming to a close - quickly. The leadership is realizing that they were sold a bill of goods, with grossly overstated networking business projections. Consequently, they have miss set Wall Street's... —  read more 

And so it begins...

Just like after the Enterasys acquisition, layoffs are coming in order to make room for the Avaya and Brocade people coming over. They can't keep everyone; synergies must be maximized to achieve the M&A business cases and they will use this... —  read more
