    JDSU CommTest is an "OLD BOY OCRACY" where results, merit, and respect does not matter. It is hyper political.

    Pros

    You will work with some really smart engineers. There are some winning products. There are some great projects to work on They are in good markets

    Cons

    No work/life balance- expect to work all hours and weekends Expect no recognition Expect unqualified people to be rubber stamped for hire and promo. There are many examples of managers who don't know their business and who are under lots of pressure that make terrible decisions without information. Very old style management, no women or minorities in positions that matter, top down decision making, lack of business process, lack of modern IT infrastructure to service customers Low employee morale High turnover and constant firings and demotions for petty things Constant organization changes-4 in FY 2012

    Advice to Management

    Invest in changing the culture to create a meritocracy, invest in IT and process to service customers, modernize


  2. Lots of experience.

    Pros

    Lots of experience and a very knowledgable and likeable team. The food on site is a bore and it's quite a drive to get something to eat

    Cons

    Hard to move up ladder and get new ideas or processes going; the big guys get all the good parking spots too

    Advice to Management

    Remain simply a telecom company
