Not the same
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CA28 November 2018
Place where indivdual contribution is only appreciated if it achieves the goals of senior management which changes regularly. Volatile and irrational decision making that creates a lot of uncertainty and anxiety. A lot of senior management changes has led to the erosion of the Aruba culture prior to HPE acquisition.

HPE - Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Boston, MA5 January 2018
Aruba is an up and coming player in Enterprise Networking and will rival Cisco at some point in time. This thriving division of HPE is however funding other parts of HPE which are sinking such as Servers. As such the profits are reinvested into Aruba and there is little growth or opportunity for advancement with the division.

Great products, great culture, lots to learn about integrating with other organizations
SYSTEMS ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CA8 August 2017
A typical day at work is going on sales calls, giving networking product portfolio overview presentations, demonstrating products, creating Bills of Material (BOMs), etc. All the things that a typical PreSales Engineer does in support of retiring quota.

I learned that there's a reason Aruba Networks consistently takes market share away from Cisco. They listen to their customers and consistently invest in bringing the best networking products in the industry to market.

Line management is spread too thin and very "tribal." If they didn't hire you, they don't look after you and you're pretty much on your own. I think this was because they were totally overwhelmed with their responsibilities.

The culture is excellent. "We're the best. We kick butt and take names." The rank and file are always learning from each other and always willing to jump in and help.

The hardest part of the job was navigating all of the unspoken rules about the dos and don'ts, and the correct way to do PreSales without feedback or guidance from management. You're just expected to know how.

The most enjoyable part of the job was winning way more often than not and working with absolutely top-shelf true professionals.
Pros
Great internal technical training opportunities
Cons
Line management spread way too thin, completely overwhelmed, and very distracted so almost entirely "hands off"
