What is the morale inside the company (other than Sales and IT - they are heavily affected by the latest layoff)?

      It’s true. The university hire bar is low. That’s why a year later there are scores of people whining about being on a PIP. Btw, if anyone from Juniper is looking, I’m hiring SDEs in AWS

      Not many people know wtf Juniper Networks is! They know Cisco very well. Some think Juniper Networks is Jumper Networks or Juniper Tree factory.

      But yeah gemalto, your question about Juniper really cracked me up!!! 😂

    Confirmed. Just don’t know the extent. Juniper signed outsourcing agreement with IBM so IT is definitely going to take a hit. Also many reqs have been pulled.

    Aw, nostalgia - I got laid off from Juniper in 2001, got a great package and had a fantastic extended vacation. It was actually wonderful.

      I’ve been waiting for my extended vacation from Microsoft for a very long time but it has eluded me so far. Maybe next recession.

      Juniper was still a “great” company back in that era. RR and AA has really phucked it up big time.

      Utah is a dead end and will always be that way because you all take low pay for family reasons

      There are many reasons why Utah is a dead scene.

      Spread the word to other people thinking of moving there, discrepancy between cost of living, WLB and salary. Want to work 15-17 hours a day on a development team that has issues with time management? Go to Utah.

      For real though, don’t go there. Not a fun place to be.

    They don't need referrals if they have guaranteed employment at IBM for a year.

      Did they finally lay off the useless parasites in marketing (you know who) and the old-timers who haven’t done shit in a decade?

    Is this confirmed news? I heard rumors that it would be on the 16th.

  • Cisco / Other 3wordlegcy
    I’ve heard the ASIC team in Sunnyvale is down 50%, some to fungible and done just cut. Does anyone inside actually know?

    When I was there I used to scrape that passwd file in a cron job and send the diffs to myself in email; this is how I knew hours before the layoffs actually happened in the old days.

    Obviously no longer there.

      I think Juniper is mainly thinking about white boxes. Pradeep already coaxed in his favs from juniper and elsewhere. Fungible is aiming for google is what I have heard.

      Nice. Well more power to them if they go. I always liked the ASIC guys at juniper. When David goes they are really toast.

      If you’re at juniper and we are talking about the ASIC team you know who that is unless you’re kind of not clueful.

    • Juniper HWMonkey
      I can confirm that it isn’t. Definitely sub 305. Sales taking most of the hit
      Jan 16

      Your 305 number runs contra everything that is coming out of other sources.

      Severance is dependent on years of service. I think it caps out at 3 months.

    ASIC team guys should talk to Pensando, Fungible, Nvidia, SiFive and Barefoot. JUNOS embedded guys can obviously talk to Cisco or Arista and JUNOS classic controls plan guys to Cisco or anywhere else. It’s a big world. Don’t waste your time with bullshit like Apstra, Forward, Cumulus, ...

      Can you give more background info on why Apstra and Cumulus are crap. Haven’t heard of Forward)?
