    I have been working at Ciena

    Pros

    Balanced work and personal life
    Laid back atmosphere
    Good support in terms of R&D enviornment, tools, etc.
    Opportunities to be exposed to one of the best optical technologies in the world

    Cons

    Very limited room for career advancement
    Too much mid-level management overhead
    Important positions are always held by people who are into process/bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Estabish a culture to promote/encourage people with strong technical expertise. Otherwise, the company is becoming more and more like public sector where attending meetings has the highest priority.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ciena

    Pros

    Ciena 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

    Cons

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

    Approves of CEO
