A day as a Support Account Manager
Support Account Manager (Former Employee) –  worked from home10 January 2018
I enjoyed my job for the most part. I was responsible for 2 very large accounts at Brocade. My day typically started with checking out my accounts environments, making sure everything was running ok. Looking at open records, checking up or following up with customer and attending many meetings.
Pros
Management left you alone to do your job to the best of your ability.
Cons
Working from home eliminated team work, it was very difficult to learn.

Company was very large and well known reputation
Ruckus Cloud Sales Executive (SaaS) (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZ10 November 2017
Everyday was 8 to 5, training good, goal setting, lead management good, management was remote in another state and tech support was issues at times when systems were down. Hardest part of the job? When the company got bought by another company in late 2016, the merger cause major disruption in order for us to do our every day job. It also caused our division to have layoff at end of summer 2017, yet we wre 120% of quota in our job. Enjoyable part of the job was staying active and achieving company set goals from corporate.

Going downhill due to the multiple acquisitions
Marketing Manger (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CA22 October 2017
Brocade is undergoing a very large and complex M&A which has drawn out over a year. Many employees are feeling deal fatigue and exhausted as coworkers quit and they are left to pick up the extra work with no option for a salary increase or promotion.
