Potential to succeed, eroded by poor management and execution.

Pros

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

Cons

Executive 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.

    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 was OK. They allowed for training classes yearly and respected people. You could get promoted for doing great work.

    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 in IT with many many years of loyal service are fleeing there because they plan on outsourcing the whole IT dept. However the VPs have not even gotten Board of Director approval on this outsourcing plan yet! If the Board rejects it and they keep IT in-house IT will be in trouble anyways at this point. People are RUNNING to look for new jobs in IT over there now.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to outsource something that you know NOTHING about. Treat people with respect and communicate your plans with your employees.
