    I worked at Tellabs full-time (Less than a year)


    The benefits, specifically, health coverage, 401K matching and salary were very good. The people I worked with were very hard working and friendly.


    The corporate strategy was non existent. Promotions were rare and often followed the Peter Principle with less experienced and less accomplished were promoted in front of others who seemed better qualified when they did promote from within. However, promoting from within was rare. Often times, executive levels were brought in from outside. The company failed to deliver quality products and failed to win the best customers to stay in business. They eventually were sold and are now known as Coriant.

    Advice to Management

    Coriant already did alot of what I would recommend, that is get rid of the entire executive staff. However there are still some incompetent people in executive positions.
