What to expect when you work at Juniper Systems

Almost all candidates that apply for a position at Juniper Systems ask, “What can I expect if I work for Juniper Systems?” In this article, the employees of Juniper Systems have provided some feedback on their experience with the environment, employee recognition, the wellness programs, and the opportunities to give back.

A safe environment

One of the best things about Juniper Systems is the safe environment that has been created. The first company maxim is, “We serve our customers and fellow employees with trust, love, respect, and active support, and expect the same in return,” this is the foundation of Juniper’s culture. Each employee can expect to be treated with respect and consideration. Employees can ask questions freely, share ideas, and feel comfortable with coworkers.

“I enjoy the supportive team of professionals that work here,” said Tim Royer, Product Manager at Juniper Systems. “I came to Juniper Systems after a 20-year career in Natural Resources, and while I was familiar with how to use the products, I wasn’t familiar with the technology that makes the products work. My coworkers are great at explaining the technology clearly so that I understand how it relates to meeting our customers’ needs. I feel their support helps me be more successful in my role as a product manager.”

Employee recognition

The employees at Juniper Systems are what makes the company different, better, and special from other companies. Juniper offers multiple ways for the company and employees to give recognition and show appreciation for the terrific work being done. Some of these forms of recognition and appreciation include the Juniper High Five, awards at the company, department, and years of service levels, company parties, and more. These efforts are built upon company maxim #11, “We celebrate individual and team achievement.”

Quinn Li, an Inventory Assistant at Juniper Systems, shared his experience of feeling appreciated with the following.

“Obviously, inventory doesn’t require a master’s in mathematics, but instead of feeling like an expendable employee, Juniper Systems has made me feel like I won the occupational lottery.”

Wellness program

The Human Resources department at Juniper Systems continues to create well-rounded programs for health and wellness. Each month the Juniper team welcomes various companies and individuals to present information at our company “Lunch and Learns”. These individuals and businesses share their knowledge and expertise for physical, mental, emotional, and financial health. Some of the marvelous partnerships the HR team has worked with include Blomquist, America First Credit Union, local yoga instructors, and more. Each program and partnership supports the benefits Juniper offers for employees and their families to be happy and healthy.

“My experience working at Juniper Systems has been excellent,” said Matt Weed, Buyer II. “I have never worked for a company that cared so much about their employees. The culture here is very accommodating to having a work and family life balance. The benefits here are nothing short of amazing.  Having worked for multiple companies before coming to Juniper, I truly feel fortunate to be here.”

Giving back to the community
