Can anyone (preferably Juniper star monitoring this site) let me know whether the layoffs are confirmed on April 1st. Actually, I left Juniper long time back due to office politics. But I worked with my heart and soul during my stay there. My only... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Juniper Networks Inc.
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
This is finally happening. Projects and teams moving to Bangalore. Building to be sold.
Is it true layoffs have been confirmed for April 1 or was somebody just joking due to the date? (And in all honestly, I really think this is not something people should be joking about, considering that we are constantly in fear of layoffs and are... read more
I used to work at JNPR in the field and can tell you that their HR practices are seriously suspect. They talk a lot about fair practices but have experienced anything but. Just one of many examples is that there is a policy that grade 8 SEs do not... read more
Juniper signed a fat outsourcing agreement with IBM so IT is definitely going to have more and more layoffs. Pay attention to reqs that are vanishing. That's a bad sign too.
Anyone heard about the next big PS June shakeup in the US and EMEA?
Instead of promoting from within and training senior engineers with new skills, Juniper is instead laying off senior engineers and hiring freshers just because they know how to code better and the cost of a fresher is 1/3 that of a senior engineer... read more
The reality is, by publicizing the planned layoff activities on this site and others like this, companies are forced to actively make an effort to reduce the impact of these layoffs. Discussion of layoff activities make managers and execs think twice... read more

As the march quarter is going to be a debacle, why the stock going up still?
I’m here in Barcelona. Never seen these JNPR guys so desperate. It’s clear that the usual suspects (Nokia, Cisco, Huawei) are dominating us. They have a real strategy with meat behind it. We keep hawking the same old BS — ZH linecards totally useless... read more
Greed! That is the only reason why. The leadership thinks they can pull in the same revenue with new sales teams just out of college. Absolute nonsense. These decisions seem to be made on baseless assumptions, and the sales and marketing leadership... read more
after what can only be described as an internal revolt the comp plan has been adjusted still not as good as in the past but should be workable question in my mind is why you would EVER want to mess with the folks that bring in the revenue - just... read more

....you know things are f^^&^ed up. This site improves my morale...as long as I don't go into the juniper offices.
There are stealth layoffs happening all over silicon valley companies. It is becoming the new trend. Employees are not protected anymore. Cisco has been doing these for a.ling time. So has FANGs, but no one talks about them. At marketing they... read more
https://finance.yahoo.com/m/d2003590-01f5-3e70-999c-5635b2b09e71/cisco-gains-on-solid-earnings.html Does CEO confess that Juniper leaders are incompetent or something seriously wrong with Juniper strategy and marketing.
Why so many DEs/PEs in PFE/Contrail team. No PEs in many other teams. Is it not discrimination? or AA->NK->promotioms/hike affinity which is not there with other team?
Why is the interim CCO listed as Belgium home office when he lives in England? Are taxes better there?
Thread about past present and future layoffs in Engineering. Let’s keep this thread event based so it doesn’t get deleted Pls share your story/event related to Juniper Engineering
RR stated most recently that MX->PTX migration didn't help and they are not behind this any more. Earlier, RR told the MX->PTX migration is highly strategic for cloud. He said that he is disrupting juniper for better and disruption of juniper... read more

What COULD RR possibly say? MJ?
I’d rather have my SE’s back.
Anyone else here in Vegas? The atmosphere at this meeting is as if there’s one big huge fart in the air and no one can get away from it. People are drinking (a LOT) and doing the Vegas stuff... but there’s definitely a major undercurrent or... read more
I recently left Juniper and curious to know how much Bonus Juniper announced for March. Looks like last quarter is great even though forecast is bad.
Mismanagement is common with incompetent managers who were promoted due to friendships, connections, influence etc. These types of managers are also responsible for lousy business decisions, that create havoc over time. Juniper marketing is full of... read more

I was in a group that had a ton of bogus PIPs. What they do is not an official PIP through HR that's filed with the company, but still give you some bogus c-ap that your performance is bad and you have been officially warned (again, but not an... read more
Heard of it. I heard juniper as a whole would merge with it. Do anyone has more details?
