Average (on average). Fun products to develop; poor opportunities to learn.

Pros

The pay is descent, the work/life balance is good. Coworkers are fun.

Cons

Opportunities to learn from one another aren't very good nor is there any sponsored training to stay with the cutting edge. Instead there is training for the mundane which really an engineer should be able to figure out on their own (e.g. how to use the email program).

The feel from upper management is that they do not care about the employee. They want to know what they can get from us rather than what they can do for us (or at least provide incentive to work hard). Morale is low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to trust their lower management more. They seem to seek scapegoats rather than accept responsibility on their part. They have driven away good people and are continuing to do so.

    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.
