Pros

Good Benefits, good culture. Some very good people work at Tellabs. I had hoped to work for this company for many years.

Cons

I was laid off, Tellabs moved almost all manufacturing to contract houses.

Advice to Management

Develop middle management talent with character. The trend these days is to promote the worst characters, this is the most demoralizing thing you can do to your workfoce

    Pros

    If you are a talented politician you can probablly go far without ever having to do any real work or be held accountable. Very understanding about work/life balence. The actual worker bees are very nice people.

    Cons

    Politically based promotions, raises and business decisions.
    Extremely inefficent.
    Old Technology.

    Awful watching people who have spent 20+ years working hard for the organization walked out the door.

    Advice to Management

    show some loyalty to the people who helped build and make Tellabs successful.
