I worked at JDSU

Pros

The best reason to work at JSDU was the flexibility to make my own hours, and leave work whenever and whyever I needed to. No one clocked me in or out, and as long as I got my work done, no one minded what I was up to.

Cons

The main downside is directly related to the upside - although I could work whenever I wanted to, I was so overloaded that I had to work all the time. I covered a territory well beyond my abilities, experience, or training, and that was the norm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I suggest considering the work loads of your salespeople before doing more 'reductions in force' or 'streamlining'. A company can only work so lean. Bring back the support staff, reduce the complexity of the compensation model, and let your salespeople do what it does best - SELL.

    I worked at JDSU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    leading company with leading portfolio of solutions that cover all markets, strong management and teams very skilled and professional.

    Cons

    As a global company they used to globally set up same organization, this is hardly working with little offices and massive business centralization causes weakness in local organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategies requires plan and time to execute, too often management change too quickly, no time to build.
