This month the San Francisco BusinessTimes named Brocade the No. 1 Best Place to Work in the Bay Area for 2010! Brocade achieved this award in the “Giant Companies” category because we had the highest level of employee satisfactionof every participating company with more than 1500 employees, in 12 counties throughout the greater Bay Area. This is an extraordinary achievement, especially given that we competed against a broad range of technology heavyweights in the Valley and companies across all industries. The San Francisco BusinessTimes visited our campus last month during our annual chili cook-off and the publication included a full-page profile. Their write-up noted that the competition was “fun and carried out with the same energetic style, thoroughness, precision and professionalism that have turned the data networking company into a $2 billion a year business.” For details on the award, see the press release.
