I worked at JDSU

Pros

For the most part the people at JDSU are very nice. People are willing to help you if you need it. There is also good work life balance and in some groups you can work remotely for a few days a week. The work isn't too high paced or stressful.

Cons

Unfortunately, HR management doesn't know what they are doing and isn't very competent. HR for HR also hasn't supported individuals as they should. Additionally, recognition and rewards are not distributed evenly and there is no room for growth. Learning and gaining new skills are not encouraged and the performance management program is not developed to encourage true growth. Additionally, if you walk around the halls of the company it is very blah with no excitement, energy, or enthusiasm. Not a fun place to work.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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