    I have been working at JDSU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    fun team mates
    great benefits
    interesting work within the telecom engineering industry

    Cons

    No official vacation. Instead have Paid Time Off, which is up to your manager's discretion as to how much / when you are able to take any. Some individuals may take 6 weeks in a year, where another's manager will limit their group's to 1-2 weeks / year. If you're not a 'favorite', your PTO is limited.
    Much work is outsourced, forcing late-night telecon calls across the world.
    Management is poor, making decisions based on outcome on their personal behalf, without seeing the big picture.
    Layoffs are not a surprise, but rather an expected quarterly occurrence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dump a lot of the current managers, and replace them with qualified people.
    Stop vagrant favoritism
    See the big picture, to prevent further layoffs.
    Bring more work back. Out sourcing is not producing better results.
