    I worked at Adva Optical Networking full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are no "White Towers" here where knowledge is hoarded. Everybody from Product Engineering and Product Management to Legal to Sales and Sales Engineering are all pulling in the same direction.

    Cons

    I'm not sure this is really a "Con" but if you aren't prepared to work well above a normal 40 hour week, this may not be the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee is switching roles, for example from sales engineering to sales, they may need assistance in putting together and delivering a solid program to grow business in the territory and get customer meetings. Having good customer facing skills and the ability to close is dependent on getting in front of the customer which is not a skill that comes naturally to a lot of people.
