Pros

Opportunity to make a difference, JDSU makes an impact on the most important things in life

Cons

Due to the markets we are in... there are often changes that occur quickly and with little notice, which makes planning difficult.

    Pros

    Flexible work locations. Somewhat flexible hours in that you are not 9-5. Great opportunities to work globally.

    Cons

    Management fails at every level to communicate any sort of vision or plan. There are constant reorgs, and they have not meet a VP that they won't hire. They place unrealistic work loads on their staff. They will without thought or consideration of skills eliminate employees to meet their goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring new directors, VPs to solve problems. Too many layers of management that are not in touch with what is needed.

    Pros

    There are still some people left that are really great.

    Cons

    JDSU business practice is to purchase companies, get as much out of them as possible and outsource what is left or dump it completely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some great people left in the Germantown Design group. Keep them.
