Because I sure as hell haven't.

APBuddy, are you still here at EXTR?
I’ve not been doing any work for the last two years. No one notices... management is a joke...
Agreed with @5dzp+153LSjeg, but I don't think "the company is essentially now Aerohive" is necessarily a bad thing, considering the previous failures at EXTR.
I'm not an AH employee, but arguably AH has better products than EXTR's legacy: betting on that product line makes sense. What I'm worried about is: 1) the execution of the cloud plan, 2) that management will stick to it long enough, rather than changing every week
The employees (that are left) all have each other, and that's pretty much it. The morale can best be described as "It is what it is." The biggest downers are that no one - seriously - really believes in the direction the management wants the products to go (which is "cloud or bust"). Unfortunately, at this point, we are all just along for the (c-appy) ride and figure we'll keep pulling in paychecks until they can no longer pay us. The company is essentially now Aerohive. There is AH management, AH practices, AH product focus. Pretty much every company that was bought out or acquired in one way or another has no product left in the pipeline, leaving all but the AH employees and upper management feeling okay about what they are doing.
which "work culture" are you talking about? All I see are people slacking. Which is not surprising considering the repeated layoffs and weekly change of direction.
Hard to believe, but yes .... Nortel Networks, as it was going under, was one of the most toxic working environments ever. In the final few years, "low" morale would have been an improvement. Coworkers were great, supportive and made it tolerable. Upper-level k–led that positivity every chance they got however, especially from Canada-based leads. They were not shy at all about their dislike of the US.
And if you have, please name it. I'm honestly curious.
