    I worked at Finisar

    Pros

    I got a good pay for the type of work I was doing. The hours were very flexible and the people pretty friendly.

    Cons

    People in the office were usually pretty busy and there was not much time for interaction. I wish I would have found out earlier that would not need me any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership was pretty good. The head engineer in my office was friendly. I got to meet only one person from higher management, so I can't really comment much about it.
