Pros

Cutting-edge products
Senior leadership very knowledgeable re the industry
Employees and most middle managers professional and pleasure to work with

Cons

Salary for non-engineers well-below industry minimum
Poor work-life balance
Ostentatious perks to senior leadership even when doing poor job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that employees are the firm's most valuable asset
Reduce management expenses (Vail, Palm Beach trips) mgmt; reward employees instead

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Research Triangle Park, NC

    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 ManagementAdvice

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