Pros

Cool technology, lots of smart people.

Cons

Stock is flat... Still losing money. Tough industry. Kind of like a good house in a bad neighborhood? Hope this will change around with time.

Since stock dropped and nobody's got rich, people started to build their empires. Grew too big. Too complex

Advice to Management

Simplify, simplify, simplify.

    Pros

    Good people- smart, dedicated, skilled.
    Free fruit daily! Great gym.
    HR department leadership has changed- great opportunity to promote, build a team, and bring back teamwork and respect. New leader (who has been thru the hard years of HR leadership) will bring good change.

    Cons

    A lot of swear words if you work on executive row!
    Too many roadmap changes that burn people out
    Not enough resources or money spent on people and development.
    Unrealistic expectations of people- long hours for weeks on end, weekend work, night calls- eventually people have to chose- family or Infinera.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is dedicated to doing the right thing for his people, some of direct reports are dedicated to doing the right thing for their pockets. More ownership of bad decisions, more celebrations, more recognition of jobs well done- people who have worked hard.
