I worked at JDSU

Pros

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

Cons

Too 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    JDSU has great people! People that will bend over backwards to do a good job and put in the right amount of time and effort. Also, the compensation is pretty good when you bust your butt. They are willing to negotiate when they really want you!

    Cons

    The management team do not understand how to run a $1.0B+ business. Due to all the M&A activity, you've got small potatoes managers trying to strategically run a huge business. The communication of strategy beyond the CEO and his staff is extremely poor, the worker bee doesn't have any idea how what they do on a daily basis does anything good for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management - learn to communicate your strategy, identify clear objectives that you organizations can rally behind to ensure that they are successful.

    I have been working at JDSU

    Pros

    - It was a paycheck
    - Some of the teams there are sharp and want to make a real difference
    - We can always count on extended time off due to company shutdowns
    - lots of cash on balance sheet.

    Cons

    - Zero vision in CCOP organization. It's all about HC reduction and reducing expense
    - CCOP leader lacks any vision, any human touch, and is surrounded by "yes" people.
    - "Toxic" environment in CCOP and total lack of trust in mgmt. (Cascades from the top)
    - Never know when the a is coming on your head..keep your resume current.
    - Benefits get cut without employees knowing or being told.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get some leaders that know how to drive a real strategic vision and and actually cares about the organization and employees.
    - Clean house at the top esp in CCOP. (It's not too late)
