    I worked at Tellabs full-time (less than an 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)
