Positive

Quality Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsCiena has great potential and is often changing due to acquisitions and changing business climates. The company does reasonably well in reacting to these changes although it is often a painful process

ConsSenior Management often has desired goals posted and communicated but middle management does little to create solid plans and steps to acheive those goals..

    Good place to start your career with. Very closed culture especially from the Former Nortel employees. Avoid Montreal

    Engineering (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Ciena


    Pros: Local Gym Good location if you are in Ville Saint Laurent Good startup for engineers… Cons: Senior Management inherited from the Nortel Era in Montreal. Very dysfunctional at the level of cross organizational activities. Very short-sighted middle managers and no long… Advice to Senior Management: To Gary Smith, the time has come to shuffle the middle and senior managers and directors of Montreal office. This is the only way… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Pros: The people....technology....great benefits....ability to accomplish amazing tasks when everyone works as a… Cons: this new upper management team seems to have zero direction, major decisions take forever to be made these days, salaries very much out of whack… Advice to Senior Management: Don't fix it if it works....stand behind what you preach.....stop lying.....outsourcing is not the answer, just because it looks good on a spreadsheet doesn't mean… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
