    Pros

    None - great on the surface, but below the surface is not a good place to be. If your face does not fit you will be fired !

    Cons

    Bully boy tactics, poor sales management, unrealistic targets, sales management do not understand the market.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring then firing, stop hiring ex Cisco senior management

    I worked at Ruckus Networks full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    quite innovative engineering staff, a lot of junior staff always trying their best

    Cons

    management bully boy tactics, leadership through fear, complete lack of understanding of market trends, no idea what is involved with working with carrier providers, sheep leading lions, no recognition for any good/hard work conducted by the business, teflon coated regional leadership teams

    Advice to Management

    stop firing people because they tell you the truth

    I have been working at Ruckus Networks full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Relies heavily on the individual's drive and skill set, but there is an amazing team of people behind you always willing to help. Real college-like atmosphere. Outside Sunnyvale the team is mostly home-office based or in tiny 1-2 person offices so it's very flexible. Company invests heavily in its people and is not afraid of hiring. A strong 'virtual' approach to doing business with a lot automation of internal processes.

    Cons

    Need to be self-driven. Days could go by where you have no contact with your colleagues. At the same time, your workload can be very high and may exceed what you are used to especially in Europe, so you need to be ready to push-back (however the company will give you all the resources you need if they're justified). Expect a lot of travel which may sound exciting at first but will take its toll on your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you are a GLOBAL company. Your upper management is way too US-focused and completely oblivious to the different priorities in other regions.

    I have been working at Ruckus Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good historical networking products, and cutting edge wireless. Pay is comparable to Cisco/Juniper etc

    Cons

    Forecasting three times a week, constant churn of people due to high quota's and low expectations of making them. Poor internal IT support almost non-existent. Continued changing of ownership has left most of the people in a permanent state of being half out the door. Internal politics between the wired and wireless sides of the house results in the wired side missing some key elements to compete.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what markets your really going after and focus. Don't continue to half support a line of business unless your going to change and dedicate yourself to that line and give it all that needs to succeed. Don't let the acquisition distract you.

    I worked at Ruckus Networks for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Seriously most amazing products in the industry, especially in wireless. Differentiated brand in an otherwise commoditized industry.

    Cons

    Internal leadership issues in marketing, lasting for years, get ignored resulting in extremely high and routine attrition. Until they fix this it won't go away and the brand will never reach it's potential marketing/saleswise. C-levels need to take this more seriously.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend anonymous polling within the department where the results go up to the very top.
