    I have been working at Calix full-time for more than 5 years


    Challenging assignments, lots of work but reasonable expectations. Company runs lean but this is a good thing because this means none of the typical layoff stress. But they do let people go due to performance.


    Lots of work and high expectations due to lean staffing. Company is so focused on the core strategy that other opportunities are often over looked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication with the workforce. Keep the team strategy clear and preach it often.

    Positive Outlook
