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

I have been working at JDSU

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at JDSU

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Remain simply a telecom company

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
