    I worked at JDSU

    Pros

    JDSU is the Goliath of the photonics telecommunincations device industry. It is too big to fail. If one has a vision, and the thick skin and determination to see it through, here are all the resources to make that vision live. This is the surest place, to launch another telco revolution, such as was brought on by the EDFA and the high-powered tunable laser source, and the fiber-to.-the-premises.

    Cons

    JDSU made numerous acquisitions since the early 90's-2000's, which in turn were the amalgamation of numerous acquisitions, and has yet to integrate these disparate,graphically separate, units, each of which clings to its own original culture and origins. Unbelievably, more than 10 years later, the squabble over who (what site, or former acquisition) will do what, still lingers. In-fighting and political manoevering is left to settle the matter, rather than rational decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rip -off the band-aid in the Telco part of your triad. Make rational personnel and business decisions and explain them high and low. Re-assign, hire, fire, re-align, whatever you call it. The organization carries too much history of turf wars (and charisma duels) that should have been laid to rest long ago, more than a decade ago.
