Pros

JDSU is one of the largest companies in optical components space. JDSU actually has a good reputation among those who have never worked with or for the company.

Cons

The atmosphere is highly political. The company is a mish mash of former M&As, with no sense of corporate integration or culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Turnover is huge. Like nothing I've ever seen. The organization lends itself to employee dissatisfaction and negativity. More communication between all levels would help.

    Pros

    They let us keep our Union and our Union benefits.
    We get to run plant during management meetings.

    Cons

    Management has meetings all day to plan next meeting.
    Engineers call all the shots and buy parts that waste money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start asking the operators help with problems not just engineers who do not run the product.

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Unify the company or break it up.
