Pros

Challenging work, great and talented people, and a good place for graduates to get their bearings. With the acquisition of Nortel's CVAS BU, this has given Genband the bulk it needs to be a serios contender in the telecom industry.

Cons

More and more R&D work is being sent to non- North American sites. This is largely an effort to squeeze cost from the product line.

Advice to Management

Consider incubating more innovation rather than focusing on cost reduction as part of network transformation.

    Pros

    People that were not VP/Director level roles, personalities were really a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    - Lack of recognition for working 60 hours plus
    - FP&A Manager had no technical aspect or grasp of systems used in order to perform financial results to senior leadership
    - TOO Many Frito people... the "I'll hire you if you get a good job down the line" was ever present in the Finance department
    - Senior management was very stand offish, never related to people actually doing the work

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip and realize that GENBAND is not as big as you think in the industry... stop spending money on Golf tournaments that do little or no good to the people that actual make the wheel go round... and finally... BORA BORA... really
