    Pros

    Fast paced - projects vary in complexity - you are responsible for your part of the project/projects and you interface with many other groups to achieve completion.

    Cons

    If you are in a mechanical engineering group you are are a second class citizen, so to speak, to the electrical engineers - it is this way by design - many mechanical engineering decisions are made by management people who are electrical engineers or have an electrical engineering background- not the best thing if you are a mechanical engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to end the layoffs- you have lost many good people - and your reputation is suffering!

    Pros

    easy work and loose schedule.

    Cons

    no salary raise, terrible upper management, no vision, no fairness.
    Horrible green card policy, bad HR, very shitty lawyer, almost screwed up everyone... Don't count your GC on Tellabs, it's waste of your time and emotion.

    Advice to Management

    quit
