    I worked at JDSU

    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.

    I have been working at JDSU

    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.
    We know our job!
