I have been working at Ciena full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits, good people, and lots of room to explore different career avenues.

Cons

Compensation is not competitive in some markets. The future is always in doubt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop throwing good money after bad projects. Cut your losses, figure out where your greatest strengths lie and aim for the fence for once.
