    I have been working at JDSU full-time (more than 5 years)


    Flexible time. Plenty of new software opportunities, rather than updating or maintaining old code.


    It was primarily a hardware and instrument company and the company is transitioning to a software company. It is learning how to develop, so mostly the challenges around mistake and mismanagement around that...

    The company doesn't really grow in value other than through acquisitions.
