Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 10 April 2017
Developers responded to supportability issues and integrated diagnostic tools into the fabric OS. Excellent cooperation between departments. But product line advances can still be followed be a discontinuation. Overall, great support organization.
Everything was fine until my division's largest customer went Bankrupt
Technical Support III (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – 28 March 2017
My division was a recent accusation and was growing fast. Then the 2008 crash hit, and our largest customer went bankrupt. Root cause was the repeal of the separation of Commercial and Investment Banking. See, root cause is not limited to technical issues.
Manager was a former Developer, not former Support.

Engineering Lab Service & Customer Cabling lead (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 27 March 2017
My manager at the time was amazing. Always pushing us forward to learn more skills; technical skills like Linux, Windows OS, networking infrastructure; management skills like time management, risk management and procurement. This was a great position for me to learn and absorb knowledge about this industry.

Senior Pricing Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – 19 February 2017
In the early years at Brocade, the company was innovative and moved at a fast pace. Employees were totally engaged and supportive of management. The company acted as a large start-up. I enjoyed the early years. As we grew, the company became more and more like a large old company.
Systems Engineer II (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – 14 February 2017
The Storage Area Networking products offered by Brocade are without peer. Same is true for their Fiber Channel Extension products.
The most pleasant part of the job at Brocade was meeting and understanding the genius of the folks who design their products. The most difficult was watching the sometimes inept management burn up the people that had made the company great.
Having said that, there still remain a large number of dedicated folks that continue to produce some of the finest products in their sector.
Ability to do what it takes to solve problems to enhance customer service.
Wicked bad politics. So bad that they get in the way of greater success for the company.

Software Technical Leader (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – 10 February 2017
Brocade has been playing the catch up game in the industry the past few years. This in turn reflects on the engineering who are working furiously to catch up and deliver things at a cray rate.
This approach has pros and cons. With the fast paced work, an engineer also needs the right tools to deliver quality content. Sadly tools are lacking in Brocade and to deliver something of quality one has to put in an in-ordinate time to make up for the lack of tools and infrastructure necessary for the developer.
There is lot of space to pick and deliver what you like but it takes more than just engineering to do that. If you possess such skills then you will thrive at Brocade.
Pickup anything and run!
You have to do it all, very less facilitation from mgmt
HR Operations Analyst II (Former Employee) – Bangalore, India – 25 January 2017
Had a good work-life balance and a great manager, who encouraged and appreciated new ideas. The benefits aren't that interesting. Unlike other companies in Bangalore, they don't offer free transport or food. Food is subsidized but is pathetic.
