Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Juniper was more security/less routing and Cisco was more routing/less security. Redback was Ericsson which is easy when creating VRFs known as contexts. When doing show command it would give you all the information within that context. In Cisco you need to perform 3 or more commands to get the same info.
Depending on the time you issue the ticket you get a corresponding engineer. Engineers from Belgium or the US or sometimes India where more helpful than ones from Spanish speaking regions.
