I'm a loyal American to the company that hires me. I have and will always work hard no matter the job given to me. I have been with this company for so long, I have built so many amazing relationships internally and with customers. I was screwed over... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Juniper Networks Inc.
I haven’t been on this site for a while and it looks like a shadow of its old self. Is the truth being silenced?
it means, Juniper can't buy this company as it has to pay at least $1B to investors. Glad that it is not 2nd contrail. Contrail is an acquisition on purely internal politics.
I am glad that there are no layoff news for a while. Hope all of you enjoy the huge bonus to be given in August.
How would you describe it? In three words - simple and to the point.
A real estate friend my mine said there’s movement to sell the land Juniper holds in Sunnyvale. The empty land around headquarters. I’m sure it’s worth a fortune but I wonder why?? Desperate to raise cash? Remember when we were going to have a dozen... — read more
After KK and NK jumped I did some soul searching. What has this place become. It’s not the Juniper of yore. With BG here it seems RR and MJ just want to create Cisco 2 with a fraction of the resources. That’s a losing game. Juniper did best when we... — read more
How likely are you to be working at Juniper in one year?
Long rumored. Finally here. Building to be sold. Projects shutdown or moved elsewhere. Mostly shutdown though.
It’s coming. Beware.
Juniper's biggest customer has picked up the fake it till you make it mantra for 5G, possibly following Juniper's own 5G deception since neither company has real 5G technology to offer... — read more
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 - $30 for f---ing years, what is RR contribution actually. And I am not sure what is your team looks like but people in... — read more
As a BoD and major share holder, he is doing nothing but sh$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? — read more
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?
