    The 6-7 day work week leaves no room for work-life balance.

    I worked at Oplink Communications full-time

    Pros

    The company offers a wide range of benefits. Free lunch is provided at Monday meetings and free dinners are provided Monday through Thursday.

    Cons

    The free dinner is likely just a tactic to get people to stay and work extended hours. You are expected to leave no earlier than 6 PM and you are expected to work all Saturdays and some Sundays for a long, exhausting 6-7 day work week. There really is no work-life balance. And it is important to note that the positive reviews about this company sound exactly like things the CEO or upper management would say.

    I worked at Oplink Communications full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    great opportunity to work with team full of very nice people; great opportunity to fill up those boring Saturdays by working the expected 6 days a week. great opportunity to enjoy Chinese food & culture, free dinner daily; immersion technique to learn Mandarin. nicest co-workers, I will miss them.

    Cons

    do not expect normal business processes, reasonable project timelines, collateral approval process, or work issue resolution. only 1 persons opinion matters, and it will not be yours, even if it's under your area of responsibility. having lunch in groups with co-workers outside of office is discouraged to the point of being feared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there is no point giving advice to management. they know what the problem is and make excuses for it every day, but they can not do anything about it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
