Pros

Good working environment and people treat each other with respect and you get to work on leading edge technology products

Cons

Company with headquaters in Naperville might not fully understand the bay area culture and support the employees to the full extent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more agressive in invetigating a startup company's potential before acquring it.

    I worked at Tellabs full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    1. They are good in making fool by giving offer little above market

    Cons

    1. Extremely unstable company to work for. Be prepared for layoff after 2-3 weeks of hire
    2. Engineers are like thanksgiving turkey which may cut on or before thanksgiving
    3. After hiring they would make you work like anything. Very stressful work environment
    4. Management is big mess

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Wipe out all existing management including CEO. Bring new and mature management who do not believe in layoff concept and rather treat engineers with respect (Not like thanksgiving turkey)
