Pros

All I can say is that it is a pay check. They did give an additional two percent discretionary contribution towards the 401k. Engineers I worked with were great, but they were all fired in January 2012.

Cons

All levels of management are completely incompetent. It is no surprise that Tellabs is using up their cash and going nowhere fast. If you work here, or if your company is acquired by Tellabs, start looking for a better job right away.
The 401k choices are really limited and poor.
Avoid Tellabs at all costs.

Advice to Management

Need to bring in new management or there is no hope for this company.

    Pros

    You already have other source of income and you would like to get medical benefits along with a decent pay.

    Cons

    Lamers are left behind. The talent has already moved to other companies in the silicon valley.

    Advice to Management

    The east coast boys have no clue what they are doing. Keep it up!
