    Pros

    -If you're not in the Engineering Org, you're treated as a step-child
    -Everything is manual, and ever changing - hard to stay on top of things
    -The work is often tactical and non-rewarding
    -Never time to improve processes, only time to react
    -When something goes wrong, be prepared to CYA because the fingers get pointed
    -The hard working employees often get stuck with all the work while the slackers get by
    -Extra perks like WFH are not permitted for most, be prepared to work long hours
    -Recognition is not handed out very often
    -Not always a fun work environment in terms of off-sites or department parties

    Cons

    -Most people are very friendly
    -The employees who have been there for a long time are very dedicated
    -If you are a hard worker, you'll survive and learn alot in a short period of time
    -Your work ethic will improve
    -Free fruit, small gym on site, lots of parking, casual work attire

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about your employees. So many are dedicated and want to stay at Infinera, but they're getting burnt out.
