    I have been working at Finisar full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of the peers there are fairly easy to work with

    Cons

    The Directors there are fanatical. They find a red herring to chase and when their big blown out goose chase fails the blame all the subordinates. They will blame anyone to take the heat off themselves

    I worked at Finisar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing good to mention about this company. If you want to join, please please think 2x. It's mental torture.

    Cons

    Positions are moving to Asia; Management encourages employees to move to Asia, or leave the company. Managers hire new employees without informing the current, there's no communications, no employee reviews. Manager deliberately forgot to file Immigration papers on purpose to deter new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on development within your own country! Focus on employee relationship that will help your company grow, not politics. Clean house! Get rid of those managements that don't do the work.
