    Pros

    JDSU 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.

    Cons

    Some divisions have limited growth potential for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cumbersome annual self-review process is meaningless and has absolutely no bearing on promotions or raises.
