Improving focus and financial performance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsSome very talented people, a lot of great technology. Current senior managment seems to be making progress. Good opportunties in the test and measurement portion of the business. Company seems to have survived the recession and has been doing better financially. Important because it stopped 401K contribution, raises and bonuses. Stock price has really taken off this year, so maybe market is also viewing JDS Uniphase prospects favorably.

ConsToo focused on acquisitions, which it does not do well, instead of internal development. Many of these companies seem to do poorly after the acquisistion. Exception has been the Acterna acquistion. Company is fragmented and Corporate seems to focus on only one part of the business. It had been the fiber optic business. Now the focus seems to be entirely on the test and measurement business.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnify the company or break it up.
