I have been working at Tellabs

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.
