Since RR joined, CSCO was around $30 JNPR like $25, now after 3-4 years CSCO is about to hit $60 while JNPR is sitting around $24 - $30 for f---ing years, what is RR contribution actually. And I am not sure what is your team looks like but people in... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Juniper Networks Inc.
As a BoD and major share holder, he is doing nothing but sh$t @Juniper. Also, why he is getting paid USD 1million for doing nothing to turn around Juniper.
When any leadership team is incompetent and has been created by promoting or hiring in friends and family members, without evaluating aptitude and attitude to get the job done, it becomes necessary for them to resort to politics, micromanagement and... read more
Just curious? asking for mass layoffs only.
The problem with Juniper go FAR, FAR beyond just engineering. Yes, engineering has always been the core of Juniper's strengths, but clearly the issues are more than just engineering, technology and product. Look at the circus that has become GTM. RR... read more
When one stays at a company for many, many years, certain things start to happen gradually. And that gradual becomes the "norm", when it shouldn't be the norm. Weekly stealth layoffs and a stock that doesn't go anywhere are some things that have... read more
Why is no one from Juniper involved in WICT? No one listed as supporting on the web site.
In case anybody was wondering - being promoted provides absolutely no protection from being laid off. I was laid off just a few months after being promoted and getting a raise. I didn't even get to celebrate properly, I was on my way out. So yeah... read more
How is it like working at Juniper Bangalore? From this forum I see some negative comments. If you work at Juniper Bangalore can you share some comments? I got an offer from Juniper. Should I work there?
How else can you explain his (and his staff's) decision making over the past 6-12 months. Maybe E (nordic telecom giant) or others will only buy JNPR if the stock is cheaper. For someone who speaks about "culture" and the "Juniper Way" all the time... read more
In the ER meeting, there was hardly any mention of layoffs, except a brief blurp "efficiencies" in sales teams. They kept repeating "laser focus" on progress. Every category was reported down/soft, including forward guidance for the next quarters... read more
A co worker just told me about this site. I started a new job here at Juniper a few weeks ago. Left a stable and good position at my old company thinking I was making a right move for me and my family. I’ve not been here long but this place is such a... read more
layoffs and then hiring friends and promoting people without posting jobs. surprised that no one is taking any notice of this bad practice in PS, not sure if this true in other groups but have see this movie few times already. very frustrating , many... read more
.....you'd never guess we s--- so much. Seems like Mist should have bought us instead of the other way around. The only reason Gap was in the room was because of Mist, not juniper.
For all those RSU holders, today's is dump JNPR stock day. Will be interesting to see the volume and number of shares sold today.
Rami mentioned that Juniper will hire more SEs in the latest quarterly results day to boost sales. Otherside, they are laying off SEs. What is happening?
Do you folks ever listen to these Earnings Reports after Market Close? You should make an effort to listen to these calls to get some pulse of the situation--especially nowadays! This stock is perpetually stuck in a $24-$28 trading band for YEARS... read more
I got the boot today, 3 mos package, shown the door immediately. Mgr said a bunch of services eng were axed today. Two colleagues i know of also hit today. I had been working with big telco accounts for high touch support. Apparently business is... read more
I know people are complaint a lot, but if you name a company that have the gene to be the potential next "Apple" in networking industry, its Juniper, not Cisco, not Arista, you know I am not kidding. I just don't understand why Contrail not yet... read more
Is there one person who believes they can still build their career here? Young or old?
JNPR has invited millions upon millions of dollars over the years, and BCG has added zero value. The last reorg planned, managed and rolled out by BCG was a s$it show and completely mismanaged. JNPR should spend that money on hiring sales people.
Morale is at an all-time low, people are afraid, not being to give their 100% work, constantly insecure, and yet the leadership is acting like nothing is happening, business as usual. Is it possible that they are so ignorant, or do they simply don’t... read more
Don't leave until you have something lined up. Plain and simple. So you're afraid of joining another company?! Why? They'll be friendlier, as the company culture is way superior, they'll train you better, you'll be working on technically more... read more
I'm tired of never ending layoffs and constant worry over having a job. I want to leave on my own, I really do, but I'd lie if I said I was not scared of the unknown. You know what they say, better the devil you know than the devil you don't. How did... read more
A bunch of SE’s let go today. At least a dozen from Web and some from cable and telco. Business is WAY down. Falling as fast as morale. I am safe but it’s time to stop wasting time and find a new gig on my own terms. RIP JNPR
In order to stay competitive and survive or even thrive (assuming the executive team has a big shakeup), what should be Juniper's strategy for the next few years? How can Juniper instill loyalty in its employees after the regular and stealth layoffs?
Just heard the news. What is the outcome of his Augmented Freaking Trick? That was supposed to resurrect J, right?
I’ve already spotted 10 pics on that mural of folks who were laid off in the last year. It’s a Where’s Waldo or corporate failure.
Another stealth layoff today affecting PS about 22 people - this is confirmed! I was affected. Best of luck to those who remain...
Simon Sinek has a TED talk titled "why good leaders make you feel safe. He says "in the military they give medals to the people who sacrifice themselves so others may gain. In business we give bonuses to people who are willing to sacrifice others so... read more
What are we going to do about our EX2300/EX3400 product line? The number of customer complaints on them are through the roof. This is hurting our company's reputation and we are losing customers. If we don't have any customers than it is obvious we... read more
The layoffs are a self fulfilling prophecy. You do this every 3 months and people will scramble to grab any lifeline elsewhere. 3rd tier know-nothing contractors come in to fill the void and you get expectant results. Clients are very keen on quality... read more
You know...it's not perfect at Juniper, but every place has it's problems. All depends upon what you're looking for. I will say the constant quarterly layoffs are worrisome, but if you are a high performer in a needed area, then you should be fine... read more
I think this website has some links with Juniper leadership. My posts about the juniper leadership got deleted and I am blocked. Though, I have many other important things to do in life rather worrying about this site blocking me, my suggestion to... read more
All, I sincerely think that Rami Rahim deserves Oscar, not for acquiring Mist, but for number of layoffs he conducted during his tenure. I have talked to couple of times casually in Juniper buildings before and I think he is number one bull sh--ter... read more
I don't think there is anybody left at Juniper who is here because they want to be. I think the only employees working here are those who haven't been able to find a replacement job yet. At least I haven't run into anybody who is not looking in a... read more
I have put down my papers. For me there is no looking back. Feel sad looking at the state of affairs there. Upper management has no clue what's going on at the ground level. Complete cut off. No one to address concerns, all HR practices are twisted... read more
On a scale of 1-10 (10 being highest morale), how would you gauge yours and other people's morale in your group and your inter-groups radar? Is there a lot of active talk of job hunting and have you observed productivity fall as a result of the... read more
And it was the best move I ever made. There IS growth and a career path and happiness in tech. Just not at Juniper. Anyone still there is either milking RSU’s or not attractive to other employers. That’s the word in the valley and hiring managers are... read more
