Good place to work but has been going down hill

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at JDSU

ProsGood senior management although a lot of great leaders left back in 2001. Great working atmosphere yet quality work can be accomplished.

ConsNeedless to say the business has not been steady and future is still unknown. This is may be out of control of management at JDS, although sales function seems to be weak in knowing what is happning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
