Good learning opportunities, stagnant growth.

Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
Naperville, IL

I have been working at Tellabs Operations full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLarge corp. engineering lab tools and training. Diverse knowledge across eng. staff allows for good collaboration. Management generally supports time to design reliable products.

Cons12 years of continuous downsizing prohibits job growth or moving around within company, raises/bonuses tied to corp. performance which has meant none.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate strategy tends toward chasing opportunities already at their peak rather then planning for long-term. Many projects started and then canceled due to missing market window. Hoping to see new managers brought in with fresh ideas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
