Typical international corporation going through changes.

I worked at JDSU full-time (more than a year)

Pros

predictable hours, friendly atmosphere, education reimbursement; mostly nice people; expected to perform the job you are hired for

Cons

office politics; constant layoffs, competition between departments; mandatory overtime; expectation to be at work when the weather is so bad that you are advised to be off the roads

Advice to ManagementAdvice

remember that people are people with families and lives - not just numbers that can be sliced away when the bottom line doesn't look like you want; safety is number one; cut out the dead wood

    Was great... not so much anymore.

    I worked at JDSU

    Pros

    Middle management and engineering staff is awesome! Great team-work! Super talented bunch of engineers. Lots to learn!

    Cons

    Leadership/upper management. The only thing that matters are dashboards and irrelevant internal metrics. Current engineering leadership is old-school big bell based. Engineering and marketing used to have a cooperative relationship... now it is
    confrontational.

    If you like senseless paperwork and spending time working on stuff that adds ZERO value to the customer... then this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either find a new company to screw up or start to trust your experts and stop micro managing!!!

    Improve one-on-one communication with each person on your team, define specific expectations, don't play favoritism with team, always get your facts straight from both sides of the story before delegating information

    Doesn't Recommend
