    Good pay, great benefits and lots of friends. There are training opportunities but you've got to ask for it.
    My position involves lots of traveling for business so I have the opportunity to travel round the country.


    JDSU is involved in a lots of outsourcing, acquisition and mergers resulting in department and employee lay offs. Also not enough raises.
