Potential to succeed, eroded by poor management and execution.

I worked at Tellabs

ProsVery fair work/life balance. Staff and mid-tier management are caring and supportive. Many opportunities to make an impact, as the company is struggling.

ConsExecutive management lacks leadership and execution ability. 'Old boy' network promotes friends over performance and effort. Overall, the company can not last long on the path it has gone down.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Tellabs has new IT leadership that is arrogant and uninformed! Once they outsource the IT Dept. the company will fail.

Pros: Started out a great place to work. When the times were good and the money was rolling in it… Cons: Promotions are for brown-nosers only now. People that started out as college interns and only been there 5 years are being turned into Directors! People… Advice to Senior Management: Stop trying to outsource something that you know NOTHING about.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
