The fundamental problem with Juniper is Marketing. There are a handful of idiots in Marketing who know just enough to impress an equally unimpressive group of mouthy directors and VPs. This group has repeatedly brought out a series of products and... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Juniper Networks Inc.
Contrail is s---ing all the money out of Juniper. A 10 year experienced guy with 0 manager experience has recently been made a senior manager from Staff role while we in other groups have to toil long and hard for a 50% bonus. Apart from this, these... read more
Juniper really needs to find ways to partner with ISPs and offer a consumer modem (cable, dsl or vdsl etc) that has SRX firewall integrated. Their sales engineers should expand focus on different customer sectors besides government such as education... read more
Not a surprise. Noticed on some thread some posts have been removed.
Mid to late March this year or sooner. Remember last March’s layoffs? They need to get their numbers in order for Q1 2018. Pretty much this, for those wondering when next round of layoffs is coming. Not sure how bad it will get, but I'm positive we... read more
I was visiting a very ill relative at the hospital and while looking around I see Cisco wireless access points, cisco security IP cameras, nurses carrying cisco wireless voip phones, cisco ip phones, everything Cisco! Makes me wonder what are the... read more
Recently I heard an ex-Marketing employee at Juniper survived several rounds of layoffs, even though she herself admitted she didn’t contribute in her role. In fact she even claimed she managed to get herself promoted twice before she was finally let... read more
In this article, Ivan Gorski explains why people (with experience and know-how) are the most valuable asset in tech companies. If this is true, why does the leadership at Juniper not reallize this, and jump at the chance to layoff people with... read more
There is no layoff big enough to solve the issues faced by Juniper... inside and outside the company. Internally, there is no cohesion between the business groups. They all act as through they are in a seperate company. Routing is arrogant. Switching... read more
Fasten seat belts for heads on the chopping block in EMEA with a new boss from "Brocade".
Head count is being cut to make this future tie up more attractive to both sides. For Juniper engineering, it's a net good move, as Ericsson just killed their BNG division. There's a lot less overlap than with Cisco, so only a few Ericsson router and... read more
ANET is on fire! 251+ today! A wonderful underdog story. C'mon JNPR, get with it!
All that could be said of engineering at Juniper, just showed up as a comment on a major news story: "I work with hundreds of these H1-B holders from India, they have vastly lied about their credentials and skills just to get into the U.S. market and... read more
In EMEA rumours are circulating again about possible layoffs in Feb/March 2018. Channel/partner team may get impacted. Apparently its being run "mafia style" by a completely inexperienced person hand-picked and promoted inexplicably early 2017 by the... read more
Juniper is #1 with service providers according to a new report by IHS. What are you smoking? What this really means is that IHS made a boatload of cash for a bogus survey and writing up a pay for play report for Juniper. Who believes this cräp? Get... read more
It has been quiet on the layoff front since October. But there were some acquisition rumors from time to time. Things are getting better now?
Customers are much better informed now, and the hype of Juniper (products) is a thing of the past. Juniper does not have a default way in, to any account, including service providers. Arista is the new black. Even (communications) service providers... read more
A drone as a manger or a bot as a hope to sell to naive customers: at Juniper you have a choice! The never-ending saga of Juniper's marketing hype and addressing customers and employees like morons continues in full-blast:... read more
No layoffs before February '18, However... the entire Security Business Unit will be sold and some will asked to hit the road anyway. Finally the SRX won't be a Juniper product, and someone else's problem. Been going through the posts and found this... read more
Any recommendations ? Or how to find a good one since there are so many available ?
Resource allocation. Very few people end up doing the most of the work. other people just come to work spending most of their time in discussing about family/pets/vacations or blowing 2 hours in gym , 2 hr lunch breaks etc, unbelieveable. but when it... read more
Reliable source from inside are teliing or speculate the product line to be sold off in a desperate effort to revitalize rest of the products and investments. Is this a true?
CA WARN notice came out. http://www.edd.ca.gov/jobs_and_training/warn/WARN_Report_for_7-1-2017_to_11-10-2017.pdf Not sure about U.S or global though. Any idea?
Curious when the next one will be. Q1 2018? There will be cuts between layoffs too, When Is the next big one going to strike?
I've watched the decay from within engineering over the past couple of years. People can speculate on the reason (poor culture, bad leadership, non-stop layoffs, low morale, etc.) Regardless of the cause the problem for Juniper is that the... read more
It's been treated mildly, at least on developmentioned side in the past. Did they again dodge the bullet with perpetual blackmail? It's insidious for healthy teams to get hit when they are the primary biz lossers. 17% Revenues down YOY is NOT a... read more
I left 4 years ago. Individual contributor. I was there about 4 years. Maybe 3 years too many. I'm good at my job. I make 50% now than I did my last year at Juniper. KJ was fun to watch, but he did not teach the next tier how to identify and retain... read more
I am really puzzled - they are talking about small cuts - just look around and tell me - are we really cutting sporadically and very light? You are right, we are not - the cuts are deep and they should be called by its true name: LAYOFFS. No matter... read more
Juniper is being run down into the ground by an ex-PLM. I agree everyone likes Rami, but that doesn’t mean he is a competent CEO. Rami may have been promoted to a point of incompetence too. The Peter principle in full effect, just like everywhere... read more
I have been working for Juniper for the last couple of years (hence not a legacy Juniper person), and believe me, Juniper's troubles are FAR bigger than just Amazon. Half-baked products, critical attack of somnambulism among PLM's, unnaturally long... read more
But thats the JUNIPER way now it seems...Right ?? LAYOFFS and more LAYOFFS to make the numbers...Not a way to run any company...Upper Mgmt is mostly incompetent and out of touch with the needs of the Corp Enterprise market and what the partners... read more
Is the realignment over for Q4 or has just begun, I have survived this week but not sure what to expect in coming weeks/months, anyone got any clue? Anyways, time to look around in either case.
I'm sick and tired of companies finding new ways to say layoffs without actually using the word, so it will not sound as bad to employees or public. We are not idiots! First it was restructuring, and apparently even that became too obvious so we now... read more
Here's a real life story: http://www.sramanamitra.com/2016/05/03/some-advice-for-laid-off-engineers/ I am ex-Juniper, left couple of months back as I saw what was coming, I am currently employed happily but am mulling bootstrapping a startup. Stay... read more
I managed to survive this round of Juniper layoffs, if it's truly done. Do we know if yesterday was it, or if they will continue with more cuts today? Haven't heard anything yet this morning, so I am assuming if it's quiet in other time-zones, it... read more
The company said it will "continue to manage operating expenses prudently and increase operational efficiencies, and said it had "initiated a realignment of its workforce in Q4, as it continues to prioritize its investments in the most critical areas... read more
It's over for me. The call was super short, maybe 10 min, 15 tops. The VP was terse and brisk, it was scripted, he did not want to be involved - it was easy to tell. The HR robots continued, super dry, scripted again, removed from any compassion or... read more
Nothing to add: "We continue to be laser-focused on cost discipline. With today’s workforce realignment, we’re making sure we are doing that prudently. You can count on us to continue to focus on earnings. Revenue headwinds hit us harder than... read more
