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 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The team was small and agile with very competent people. Received good feedback from manager and always knew how to adjust to better meet goals, flexible work environment, a lot of freedom.

    Cons

    Felt there was lack of training at the start. Communication between marketing versus engineering often conflicted in terms of my targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More involvement with co-ops, allow students to network with each other and larger team.
