Would not recommend employment here.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at JDSU

ProsDiverse culture, good product mix, can get away with anything (no accountability at this company).

ConsToo numerous to mention: poor leadership, poor decision-making ability by Sr. management, discrimination (age and race), HR department is very week - no follow-through, VERY bureaucratic and political environment, little to no performance feedback, insecure engineering and mgmt staff (does not empower their employees), very weak engineering team, etc etc..

Advice to Senior ManagementEntire CCOP mgmt staff needs to be held accountable for their poor business sense and leadership ability.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
