    I worked at Ciena

    Pros

    Very Young energetic management team. Possess a can do attitude. A lot of new creativity.. Do not know what else to say.

    Cons

    Very Young inexperienced management team. Often immature in decision making. Products are often late to market. Company works hard but parties much harder rewarding the wrong behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better balance of experienced managers and up and coming. Must be more proactive towards upcoming market trends instead of catering to 5-6 large service providers.
