Does Arista Networks offer massages?

Pros

1. Good quality and extremely helpful engineers 2. Developers will be testing their own code which results in high quality software and develops a better perspective and appreciation of the software 3. Work from home 4. Hacakthon 5. Free Coffee Mug and paperless culture. 6. Ideal place for people who like to work minimum and get paid.

Cons

1. Quality of work given is abysmal. You don't learn much and you become saturated. 2. Too of much of layering around open-source and well known softwares so the learning curve is pretty high and is usually useless outside Arista. 3. The work Arista is doing is all about excellent execution but there's no innovation. We are writing software which is already supported by Cisco but ours is on a better foundation which is already written so there's nothing new or groundbreaking happening here to look forward to. 4. Arreivew: Nothing to say here. A broken system. 5. 0 annual hikes. Essentially, you will be becoming poor due to inflation over the years. The company which pays in dollars will be spending less on you over time. 6. Lack of motivation since there is no hike and rewards, the daily productivity is about 2 to 3 hours. 7. Attempt to unify the work cultures world-wide. The upper management in US needs to delegate some management and logistical responsibility to people in India so they can take informed decisions without asking for approval every-time. Example: Just giving annual bonus of 2L in India instead of hikes without taking inflation into consideration. 8. No budget allotted for extra-curricular activities such as cricket, badminton or other team outings. Employees who interested in sports/trekking need to pay from their own pockets. No frequent team outings as well. 9. Everyone between 1 to 15 years of experience has a title of software-engineer due to flat-hierarchy. It might be difficult to find jobs outside Arista which require you having to lead projects and lead a team after 10 years of work experience. 11. The general mood of the employees in India is pretty gloomy. Any feedback given isn't taken seriously. People are leaving in a bunch.

Advice to Management

None. They don't listen anyway

5. Free Coffee Mug and paperless culture.

What is health insurance like at Arista Networks?

Pros

- Generally friendly work environment - Encouragement to own your code (few examples where legacy code was "off limits") - Openness to branch out, experiment in your work. - Somewhat flexible work hours. Team dependent, but most managers are usually ok, especially if you have special circumstances. - Reasonable salary with decent growth (in the experience of a new-grad up to 5 years experience at least). - Opportunities for good stock and cash bonuses (can possibly add 50-100% to salary after a couple years, in my experience.) - Pick Windows, MacOS, Ubuntu for your laptop (you're remoting to a Linux server for most stuff anyway) - Improvements to development tooling infra is improving (though is subject to all the strains that come with medium size companies) - Remote work setup is technically very good when you can't be in the office (provided you have a good internet connection)

Cons

- Employees in different time zones can cause strain on teams/projects - There is some expectation of outside of typical work-hours work (mainly due to time zones), though fortunately this doesn't necessarily translate to "overtime" work (you could just flex your work hours). - Health benefits are so-so (at least I'm told from more senior Canadian employees). - Diversity is somewhat lacking (a plague on the industry as a whole).

Advice to Management

Preserve the culture of freedom to explore, customize, etc. A startup-esque mentality at a large-ish company is really important to a lot of folks. Push more on broader diversity programs outside of recruitment. It starts in pre-school.

Health benefits are so
