    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Oclaro full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salary was OK and the engineering work was challenging and fun to work on. The benefits were OK, but not great.

    Cons

    We were bought by Oclaro in 2008 as part of a fire-sale. Even though we contributed mightily to the company's bottom line, we were treated as disposable items. We were never given the opportunity to leverage our expertise in ultra-high-bitrate transponders to expand our product line and market. Instead, we were replaced with yet a newer acquisition, OpNext. Just too much churn at the corporate level which included questionable mergers and confused market positioning - it became a major distraction to the rank-and-file.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the "shinny object" fascination that cost the companies (both Oclaro and OpNext) so much in market capital. As evidenced by the sale of two of the most profitable groups within the combined Ocalro to cover operating expenses after a poor merger, too little critical thinking has gone into the growth strategy. Pare down the products and markets to those you know you can succeed in and shed the marginal ones. Consider a merger with a larger competitor, but first shed all potential overlapping products/groups, or that merger will fail as did the Oclaro/OpNext merger. Oh, and perform due-diligence when studying the finances of the mergee, please.
