Given how unsuccessful Juniper has proven itself with backfilling positions, I hope none of my colleagues will leave any time soon. I don't know if the reason is that all those who were determined to leave have already left, but it seems to me that the attrition has slowed down a bit?

Many good employees were pushed out of Juniper marketing because they disagreed with MM and his team of incompetent leaders. Some left on their own to follow their buddy JD at CSCO a few years back and that was a welcome break. More recently, there have been disappointing decisions made in favor of MIST, which has resulted in poor sales across the board in legacy products - routers, switches and firewalls.
The bottom line is, attrition at Juniper is due to poor leadership and bad decision making at many levels. Hiring and promotions to meet labor requirements such as diversity and equality are hard to do when there just aren’t enough applicants because Juniper just doesn't attract enough applicants due to poor performance and lack of genuine leadership. It is a slow death spiral now. Only the die hard faithful will stick around to turn the lights out.
For the record, the good guys didn't want to leave or were determined to leave. Poor management did that.
