Impressed with upper management direction and focus.

ProsJDSU has chosen to only operate in high growth markets and only if they can be the #1 or #2 player in that market. Management has a clear vision and works diligently to achieve the well communicated goals.

ConsSome divisions have limited growth potential for employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe cumbersome annual self-review process is meaningless and has absolutely no bearing on promotions or raises.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
